Stoke didnt really show much but did take advantage of our mistakes. Like you say classic championship type result. Thought they looked very middling though, with there resources they should be better than what they looked IMO.Really frustrating performance that from Luton; we more than matched Stoke for swathes of the game - in fact, we had 17 chances and 7 shots on target (even Sluga had a free header on target), whereas Fletcher and a real stinker from Powell killed the game. Two mistakes, two goals... that’s the Championship. Classic Stoke away performance. They weren’t that good and I thought were very beatable. That said you look at the quality of their squad and you can see why they’ve been underperforming last season.
If we keep playing like that, I think we’ll win more than we lose, but Hylton really needs to start stepping up now too. Joe Morrell was very useful in the middle.
Stoke really have a sign over us - they haven’t lost to us in 20 years! Final word for Sam Clucas and Nick Powell who seemed to spend more time on the floor than on their feet...
I actually thought Hylton did ok today, definite improvement on his cup performances for me, looked sharper and his movement was better. Its a clear downgrade from Collins though.
