Ghana's No. 1

Luton ease to victory at Blackpool

Published on: 04 December 2021

Elijah Adebayo took his goal tally for the season to nine

Goals from Sonny Bradley, Elijah Adebayo and Jordan Clark gave Luton a resounding victory over out-of-form Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Bradley headed home Kai Naismith's corner three minutes before half-time.

Adebayo nodded in off the post after keeper Chris Maxwell had misjudged Clark's 54th-minute cross.

And Clark added a late third after being teed up by Admiral Muskwe's cut-back.

Bradley's first-half opener came after Blackpool had almost taken the lead, when Keshi Anderson fired a loose ball against the post after keeper James Shea had parried Reece James' shot.

They also went close to scoring when Ryan Wintle's strike was superbly tipped away by Shea.

But there was no way back for the Seasiders once Adebayo helped himself to his ninth goal of the season.

Clark's cool finish capped a fine day for the Hatters, who had failed to score in their previous three away matches.

Luton moved up to 12th in the Championship table, while Blackpool drop to 15th and have now gone six matches without a win.
