A LAST-GASP own goal from Keighley-born Matty Pearson condemned his Luton Town side to a 2-1 defeat against Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship.

The 26-year-old, who has been an ever-present for the Hatters so far this season, turned in a Mateusz Klich cross in the last minute.

After a first half in which Town keeper James Shea made a superb double save from Phillips and Jack Harrison to keep the scores goalless, Leeds led on 51 minutes through Bamford's opener.

Three minutes later, Collins powered home his sixth of the season from Brown's fantastic cross, before the late winner.

Individually, it was a rare negative for former Oakbank School student Pearson in his season so far after making the step up to the Championship, which has seen him score at the right end twice already this term.

He scored in the Hatters' 2-1 defeat at Cardiff City in August and fired home in Luton's 2-1 victory at his former side Blackburn Rovers in September.

Pearson has also maintained good discipline during the first half of the season with only one booking, at Sheffield Wednesday in August, and no red cards.

But Luton Town boss Graeme Jones was adamant Leeds United's opener in their 2-1 win at Kenilworth Road should have been ruled out.

Jones believes Kalvin Phillips fouled Izzy Brown in the build-up to Patrick Bamford's 51st-minute opener.

James Collins levelled almost immediately, before Bamford laid claim to Leeds' last-minute winner, the official verdict being an own goal from Pearson but Bamford claiming he got a touch.

Jones was unhappy with the opener and also with other decisions during the game.

"I don't think I'm a biased manager, I think I try to be fair and try to be subjective with things," Jones said.

"In my opinion, I've looked at the clips back, it's a foul on Izzy, taking his legs from him.

"In my opinion, it's a penalty on James Collins, he gets the other side and gets kicked and in my opinion, Matty Pearson is onside.

"We're playing Leeds United, the gulf is already big enough and when you don't get decisions like that going your way and your team has given absolutely everything they've got, it's a difficult one to swallow.

"I was delighted with aspects of the performance apart from the final result.

"There comes a point where you have to admire the boys who gave absolutely everything, they were just three minutes short of getting a result.

"Obviously we have to turn those performances into points. These (Leeds) are the best team in the league, I've analysed them enough to say that.

"I see them cutting through teams and I mean at will, and they had more shots than us, they had possession, but we were always in the game, and that's the satisfying aspect."
