Luton manager Nathan Jones said:

“Danny Hylton has scored a perfectly good goal, that is onside, and once again, a decision has gone against us.

“That’s now five or six for the season where we’ve had goals wrongfully chalked off for offside.

“It does keep happening to us.

“It’s just a decision really, it’s too eager and he’s given it.

“Today we’ve scored a perfectly good goal, we’ve done it in the past, scored against Barnsley, our last defeat. “We had two bad decisions against us and it cost us, luckily today it didn’t cost us, but if we’d scored on 74 minutes, then who knows what could have happened? “We could score again, they could score again, I would rather have a time machine and go back to 74 minutes and have a perfectly good goal, two-all and say ‘16 minutes, right who’s going to win it?’ “I would have preferred that, but once again a bad decision and it’s cost us.

“We probably should have won it as I don’t know what to say as my team has been probably robbed there.

“But to come from 2-0 down to score two especially in the fashion and the lateness we did, a great point and keeps our unbeaten run going.”

“I’m delighted with a point in the end because of how the game went. “I thought first half we were under no pressure in terms of controlling the game, we needed to be a little bit more clinical and then out of nothing, they got a goal."
