Elijah Adebayo scored his first two goals for Luton Town this season with his first half efforts

An early Huddersfield Town goal from Ben Jackson rescued a point from a six-goal thriller with Luton Town.

The visitors took the lead twice in the first half through a Carlton Morris own goal and a Jordan Rhodes penalty, but were pegged back twice by Elijah Adebayo.

On the stroke of half-time the Luton front secured a third win thanks to Jordan Clarke.

Football Highlights

However, Jackson converted from a corner as Huddersfield secured their first point under new manager Mark Fotheringham, although they remain in the bottom three of the Championship.

But they finished with 10 men after David Kasumu was sent off in injury time for two bookable offences.

The two sides were not play-off rivals last season, but the Terriers were second in charge as they overcame Luton over two legs in May’s semi-final.

Danny Schofield replaced Carlos Carberon in just nine games, his second in charge of Fotheringham. And the Scot put his new side in front when Hatters striker Morris Sorba got the final touch to Thomas’ in-swinging corner.

The lead lasted seven minutes before Adebayo turned in the box and his goalbound shot was deflected past goalkeeper Lee Nicholls by Town defender Michal Helic.

A Rhodes penalty following Dan Potts’ handball put the visitors back but again their advantage was short-lived, this time just five minutes in, as Adebayo shrugged off two defenders before calmly finishing.

And Luton were in front at the break thanks to Clarke’s first goal since last December after a buccaneering forward run from wing-back James Brea.

However, 21-year-old academy graduate Jackson scored the West Yorkshire side’s sixth goal at the back post from another wicked in-swinging corner from Thomas.

Both sides tried for a winner before Kasumu was sent off after being booked twice in injury time.

It was Huddersfield’s first away point of the season and fourth game unbeaten for ninth-placed Luton.

Luton Town Manager Nathan Jones told BBC Three Counties Radio:

“I could only see them scoring from set-pieces. Every time they had trouble, we seemed to head it. We didn’t do enough of the basics.

“Other than that, we were fantastic. We had 24 shots, 11 on target and three goals. We wanted to be aggressive and we targeted certain areas and certain people.

“The game plan was absolutely not heading the ball out of our 18-yard box when they played the set.”

Huddersfield Town manager Mark Fotheringham told BBC Radio Leeds:

“That team out there today and the style of play is a little closer to what I want the fans to identify with the team.

“We played exciting football with as many attacking players as possible on the pitch. In the end, we had five players in the front line at all times and we really held them back.

“I’m not really satisfied with the way we conceded goals again, but the boys showed good character to come back.”
