Luton Town lost by two early goals at Stoke City in what may have been the last game of Nathan Jones’ second spell in charge of the Hatters.

Against a team he managed for almost 10 months in 2019, Jones’ side conceded twice inside the first 13 minutes – both goals coming from left-wing crosses by Morgan Fox.

Nick Powell arrived late in the box to head in the opener before Tom Lockyer, under pressure from Liam Delap, turned away into his own net.

Luton missed chances to reply, with striker Carlton Morris firing straight at Potters keeper Jack Bonham before the break and an unmarked Lockyer hitting the post from eight yards after the break.

Stoke manager Alex Neil responded to Saturday’s home defeat by Birmingham by making six changes to his starting line-up and his overhaul of the line-up had the desired effect, with victory lifting the Potters into mid-table moved

Among the additions was centre-back Harry Souttar, who made his first start for the Potters in 367 days after recovering from a serious knee injury sustained while on international duty with Australia.
