Hull City 0-1 Luton Town: Kazenga LuaLua winner boosts Hatters chance


Kazenga LuaLua capped a dominant second-half display from Luton with an 85th-minute winner

Luton Town boosted their chances of remaining in the Championship with a victory over Hull City which leaves the Tigers’ survival hopes out of their own hands.

Kazenga LuaLua’s low 20-yard strike with five minutes remaining pulled Luton level on points with 21st-placed Charlton Athletic, who drew with Wigan Athletic earlier on Saturday.

The result leaves Hull three points adrift of both Luton and Charlton, although the relegation picture is further complicated by the Latics’ possible 12-point deduction for going into administration.

Wigan, who are 13th after drawing at The Valley, would drop down to League One as it stands because they are only 10 points above the Hatters and Addicks.

Bottom side Barnsley could also yet stay up, although they must win both of their remaining fixtures – starting against Nottingham Forest on Sunday – and hope other results go their way.
