Premier League Late Luton Town goal denies Burnley all three points

Burnley were heading towards Premier League victory at Turf Moor over Luton Town before a late goal ensured the points were shared in a 1-1 draw on Friday night.

Amdouni hammered in his fifth goal of the season from Wilson Odobert’s precise cut-back in the first half to put Burnley ahead before Carlton Morris headed in the equaliser in stoppage time, which had to be checked for a period of time by VAR for an adjudged foul on James Trafford.

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany made three changes from the side that last featured in the Premier League as Hjalmar Ekdal, Ameen Al-Dakhil and Josh Cullen all came into the XI for Charlie Taylor, Jordan Beyer and Sander Berge.

Burnley delivered the first chance of the night when Gudmundsson was slipped in on goal, but Town keeper Kaminski was equal to it and denied the Icelandic midfielder with a smart save before Odobert’s follow-up effort was blocked.

The Hatters responded quickly to the early scare as Doughty looked to pick out Adebayo at the back post with a fizzing pass across the face of goal but the striker just couldn’t quite connect onto it.

Trafford was then forced into his first action of the night as Barkley unleashed a fierce strike from outside the area aiming for the top corner, which the Burnley No.1 pushed over for the first corner of the game.
