Zian Flemming and Tom Bradshaw had given the Lions a healthy advantage with 52 minutes gone, before Elijah Adebayo and Luke Berry netted to salvage the Hatters a point. It took the Lions four minutes to take the lead when Flemming's shot squirmed through Ethan Horvath's gloves. Millwall were 2-0 up after 52 minutes when an offside-looking George Honeyman crossed for Bradshaw to tap home. The Hatters were back in it six minutes later when Cody Drameh hit the crossbar and Adebayo flicked in the rebound, before they levelled with three minutes left. Jordan Clark fed Berry and he found the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Rowett said: "If you reflect on being 2-0 up pretty late in the game then you're always going to be disappointed not to win the game. "I think being 2-0 up was probably a slightly unfair reflection on the game and on Luton. We scored a fortuitous goal. "It's a good strike, the keeper clearly made a mistake for it, maybe then we just drop and invite pressure and Luton are very good at putting the ball in our box and keeping that physicality and energy. "At half-time I said 'this is not a game we can sit in, we've got to move the ball' and I thought second half for about 20-25 minutes we showed a little bit more quality on the ball. "To go 2-0 up, we're in a good position and the two moments we just don't defend very well and get out to the ball quick enough, so that was the disappointment. "Would I have taken a point before the game? Possibly. But being 2-0 up you're always going to be disappointed."
