Luton and play-off hopefuls Reading cancelled each other out during a 0-0 draw at Kenilworth Road last night. The Hatters went close through Jordan Clark in the first half, while James Collins might have won it at the death with a header, but Nathan Jones' side did extend their unbeaten run to three games. To find out how the hosts rated on the evening, see below.
1. Simon Sluga: 7.5
Yet again another very quiet encounter for the Croatian who had just one shot on target, that a routine free kick from Swift late on. Got down bravely at the feet of Meite, ensuring last season’s four-goal attacker couldn’t find a way through.
2. James Bree: 8
Looks to have his confidence boosted once more following Saturday’s win over Watford as he made some good forays forward on the right with some excellent crosses that on another night might have led to a goal.
3. Kal Naismith (STAR MAN): 9
Impressed at centre half recently, but is now doing even better at left back. Kept Meite quiet all night, made some good interceptions, but his ability on the ball when coming out of defence shone through, setting up a great chance for Clark.
4. Matty Pearson: 7.5
Got away with one effort in the first half when a clearance was charged down, but it was largely a solid display from the defender. Looked to pass to feet when possible, while at full stretch to make a vital clearance in the second period.
