      Late Morris winner breathes life into Hatters' survival bid

      2024/04/06 17:52

      Carlton Morris' late matchwinner earned Luton a dramatic victory over Bournemouth, as the Hatters came from behind to earn a valuable three points at Kenilworth Road on Saturday. 

      Rob Edwards' side entered the clash on a run of 10 games without a Premier League win and they struggled to impose themselves in the opening exchanges against a slick Bournemouth side. 

      Marcus Tavernier and Justin Kluivert both struck the woodwork for the visitors in the first half, the former with a fantastic curling free-kick. 

      After the interval, Tavernier did find the net to give the Cherries the lead - the former Middlesbrough man netting a crisp shot from outside the box. 

      Luton, however, have shown admirable resilience throughout the campaign and Jordan Clark dragged the Hatters back onto level terms with a clinical strike in the 73rd minute. 

      The stage was set for Morris to be Luton's hero, the striker having already hit the post prior to Clark's equaliser. 

      With 90 minutes on the clock, Morris outmuscled Illia Zabarnyi to meet Cauley Woodrow's cross to send the home fans into frenzied celebration. 

      Luton remain in the drop zone, but are only behind 17th-placed Nottingham Forest on goal difference - Forest travelling to Tottenham on Sunday.

      Wow, what a game! It wasn't looking good for us at first but we never give up. So proud of the team for showing such resilience and fighting back for the win.

      Absolutely buzzing for the lads! The resilience shown by Luton throughout the season is unmatched. Great goal by Jordan Clark to equalize.
