Luton snatch point against Forest in survival battle

Luke Berry of Luton Town scores his team's first goal during the Premier League match between Luton Town and Nottingham Forest at Kenilworth Road on March 16, 2024 in Luton, England.

Luke Berry scored an 89th-minute equaliser for Luton as they salvaged a point at home to Nottingham Forest as both teams battle for Premier League survival.

Chris Wood had put Forest ahead when he stretched to convert Morgan Gibbs-White's dink to the back post.

With time running out, Reece Burke headed Ross Barkley's corner towards goal and Berry finished on the spin from six yards.

Ryan Yates nearly gave Forest all three points in the final minute of added time but his sweet strike flew just wide to keep the gap between the sides at three points, with Luton in 18th, a place below their visitors.

Luton started brightly and Barkley's 20-yard shot, one of three efforts from outside the box early on, clipped the post, but Forest were in the ascendancy by the time their goal came.

Divock Origi had seen two efforts cleared off the line, the second just moments before Neco Williams found Gibbs-White, who crossed for Wood to score.

Teden Mengi did have the ball in the net for Luton before half-time but it came off his arm before he bundled it in and his celebrations were cut short.

There were more chances for Nuno Espirito Santo's side after the break with Issa Kabore hooking the ball off the line from Anthony Elanga.

Luton kept the deficit at one, though, and put the pressure on in the closing stages, albeit without creating anything of note until Berry's goal which keeps the Hatters within striking distance of the sides above.
