Luton boss Rob Edwards was frustrated to concede late during his side’s 1-1 draw against Rovers – but admits it was “probably a fair result”.

The visitors when in front early in the second half when Tom Lockyer headed home from Carlton Morris’ cross.

But Hayden Carter got Rovers back on level terms four minutes from time with his first goal for the club.

Sam Szmodics nearly won it at the death with a thumping strike from the edge of the box, but the crossbar came to Luton’s rescue.

Edwards told Sky Sports: “It’s always frustrating not to see it out when you go 1-0 up but it’s probably a fair result.

“They really needed it and you could sense that. You could hear a bit of apprehension among the supporters, you knew it was important to them.

“We played the first half in third gear and it was probably the most frustrated I’ve been at half time since I’ve been here.

“I thought second half, we were pretty good. We got the first goal and we deserved that.

“We were pretty solid without the ball when we needed to be. We wanted to make changes and try to manage people, get others some minutes as well.

“But all the time we were thinking to make sure we didn’t lose any kind of ascendancy we had. To concede from a set piece is frustrating.”

The result keeps Rovers’ play-off hopes alive going into the final day, although they will need to win at Millwall and hope that other results go their way.

Jon Dahl Tomasson's men currently sit ninth in the table but are only behind Sunderland and West Brom on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Luton extended their unbeaten run to 13 matches and are guaranteed to finish in third place regardless of what happens against Hull next Monday.
