Luton's players applaud their visiting fans after Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday

Hatters rated v Sheffield Wednesday

Luton Town suffered their third successive league defeat of the season last night, beaten 1-0 at Hillsbrough by Sheffield Wednesday.

A goal from Owls attacker Kadeem Harris on 54 minutes was enough to settle the outcome in favour of the hosts. Read below to see how the Hatters rated on the evening.

Excellent first half by the keeper who looked confidence, assured, decisive, and made a good save from Harris. Part of the defensive mix-up after the break though as his ill-judged throw was pounced on by Murphy.

Like the rest of Town's back-line, he did well in the first period, with Harris not getting too much joy on the Owls' flank. Stretchered off after the break and will hope that it's not a serious injury.

In at left back on his full league debut for the Hatters and made some vital interceptions and clearances during the opening 45 minutes. Kept Murphy quiet for the majority, until Town were caught out.

Kept the hosts quiet for the first period, but became slightly flustered as the game wore on. Booked for throwing the ball away and then might have gone after another foul. Outjumped by Fletcher for the winner.
