Huddersfield Town fought back to claim a 1-1 draw with Luton Town this afternoon at the John Smith’s Stadium.
George Moncur had fired Nathan Jones’ side into a 21st minute lead, but Carel Eiting pulled Carlos Corberan’s side level on the hour with a superb header.

There was a bright start from the away side, with Harry Cornick curling an effort into the arms of Ben Hamer. Jones’ side were limiting Town opportunities and getting on top of key threat, Josh Koroma.
The Huddersfield forward was forced to put himself about and picked up a booking early on, with Oliver Langford then giving him the benefit of the doubt as he lunged into a tackle.
Luton complaints were cut short, though, with Moncur firing them into a 21st minute lead as he reacted first to Sonny Bradley’s header across goal after a clever free-kick.
Huddersfield then began manoeuvring their way through the midfield better, but Lewis O’Brien was off-target with his left-footed shot shortly after the half-hour.
Koroma scuffed at Simon Sluga and the Luton goalkeeper did well to deny a deflected Adama Diakhaby shot, but Hamer was keeping Huddersfield in things at the other end, clawing a fierce Moncur drive away.
The second-half began with a little bit more promise from Huddersfield, with Koroma heading over on 52 minutes after a sustained period of pressure.
Koroma was then guilty of shooting when he should have passed minutes later after breaking clear, but the tide was turning.
And, on the hour, Huddersfield were level through Eiting. Koroma linked up well with Harry Toffolo, who stood the ball up for the Ajax loanee to loop a header back and beyond Sluga.
More bright play from Koroma on the left almost forced an immediate second, with the winger really driving Corberan’s side forwards.
The 21-year-old curled wide of Sluga’s post on 71 minutes before a flurry of changes for both sides ruined the flow of the game.
James Collins – an isolated figure for much of the second-half – was way off target with an effort at the start of injury time and Fraizer Campbell snatched at a volley that fell his way.
There was to be no late drama in West Yorkshire, with both sides settling for a point and heading into the international break in mid-table.
Huddersfield Town 1-1 Luton Town.
