Luton Town booked their place in the second round of the Carabao Cup last night courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Ipswich Town, with one player in particular producing an eye-catching performance for Graeme Jones’ side.
Signed on a season-long loan from Chelsea on transfer deadline day, Izzy Brown made an instant impact on his debut by providing a sumptuous assist for Lloyd Jones’ opening goal at Kenilworth Road.
Excellent throughout the clash with the Tractor Boys, the 22-year-old was eventually substituted in the 66th minute by Jones with the Hatters already holding a 3-0 lead over their lower league opponents.
Although Ipswich managed to pull a goal back Armando Dobra, Luton held on to set up a meeting with Championship rivals Cardiff City.
For Brown, it must have been a relief to emerge unscathed after a myriad of injury issues limited him to just two appearances for Leeds United last season in what turned out to be a miserable loan spell at Elland Road.
After the Ipswich clash, Brown tweeted: “Feels good to be back out there.”

Brown could be in line to keep his place in Jones’ side when Luton host West Bromwich Albion in the Championship on Saturday.
