On Saturday, Luton and Swansea were held to a 3-3 draw at Kenilworth Road. With both teams drawing in their previous fixtures, they were keen to pick up points. Luton wanted to continue adding points after a 1-1 draw against Bristol City. Swansea, on the other hand, were unable to beat Millwall in a 0-0 draw. As things stand, Luton are in 13th place on the table and has 10 points while Swansea sit in 21st with 7 points after 8 matches.

Luton started the first half well, with Luke Berry finding the net early in the first half. The momentum was now with The Hatters, who then scored again through a goal from Elijah Adebayo, 15 minutes in to establish a 2-0. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a 2nd effort from Elijah Adebayo, 23 minutes in to see out the first half 3-0.

Swansea took the initiative in the second half, thanks to a goal from Jamie Paterson in the 63rd minute. The momentum was now with The Swans, who then scored again through a goal from Olivier Ntcham, 86 minutes in to establish a 3-2. However they weren’t finished yet and Joel Piroe made it 3-3 just before the final whistle to make it 3-3.

Both managers used the full entitlement. For Luton, Jordan Clark, Cameron Jerome and Glen Rea, came on for Luke Berry, Harry Cornick and Elijah Adebayo, Swansea brought on Olivier Ntcham, Ben Cabango and Joel Piroe to replace Liam Walsh, Rhys Williams and Flynn Downes.
