Luton were knocked off top spot in League Two after a disappointing defeat by visitors Coventry.The hosts went close first, with James Collins volleying over, before Coventry came inches away from an opener when Liam Kelly’s 45-yard effort hit the bar.Coventry ended their four-game scoring drought after 17 minutes when Marc McNulty’s bullet header from Jodi Jones’ cross beat Luton goalkeeper Marek Stech.

In the second period, Luton’s Harry Cornick blasted over while Glen Rea made a crucial goal-line clearance to prevent Jordan Ponticelli from doubling City’s advantage.Danny Hylton was denied by Lee Burge on the hour mark and then rifled over on the break, while substitute Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu was off target too.Luke Berry missed a golden chance, firing at Burge, with Hylton then failing to beat the keeper from five yards.However, in stoppage time, Rea was sent off after bringing down McNulty and Jordan Shipley crashed home the-free kick.The Sky Blues then scored their third when Duckens Nazon raced clear to beat Stech.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsLuton1Stech7Stacey6CuthbertBooked at 90mins5MullinsSubstituted forMpanzuat 58’minutes3Potts14CornickSubstituted forShinnieat 74’minutes8LeeBooked at 41mins16ReaBooked at 90mins18Berry19CollinsSubstituted forLeeat 80’minutes9HyltonBooked at 6minsSubstitutes2Justin11Shinnie17Mpanzu22Gambin24D’Ath36Shea38LeeCoventry1Burge2Grimmer4Willis5McDonald24Haynes8Doyle6Kelly11JonesSubstituted forShipleyat 90’minutes7VincentiSubstituted forBiamouat 82’minutes10McNultyBooked at 90mins38PonticelliSubstituted forNazonat 81’minutesSubstitutes3Stokes9Biamou12Davies13O’Brien18Nazon26Shipley28MaycockReferee:Robert JonesAttendance:9,670Match StatsHome TeamLutonAway TeamCoventryPossessionHome52%Away48%ShotsHome10Away9Shots on TargetHome3Away5CornersHome6Away6FoulsHome8Away19Live TextPosted at Match ends, Luton Town 0, Coventry City 3.Full TimePosted at 90’+9′ Second Half ends, Luton Town 0, Coventry City 3.BookingPosted at 90’+9′ Scott Cuthbert (Luton Town) is shown the yellow card.Posted at 90’+8′ Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu (Luton Town) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Posted at 90’+8′ Foul by Michael Doyle (Coventry City).Posted at 90’+8′ Attempt saved.
