Luton wingback Amari’i Bell felt his side ‘deserved more’ when falling to a 1-0 defeat against table-topping Burnley on Saturday.

The Hatters gave a terrific display at Kenilworth Road, particularly in the first half, going closest to opening the scoring when Elijah Adebayo fired over from close range after being picked out by Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu.

They paid the price in the second period when Gabe Osho handled Vitinho’s flick inside the area and experienced striker Ashley Barnes slotting home from the spot.

Tweeting afterwards, Bell said: “Time to grit our teeth and go again.

"We deserved more but that’s football, let’s keep fighting.”

Reacting to his comments on social media @LTFC_Dave said: “Tough against top of the league anyway let alone when it's 11 v 12.

"See you in Birmingham.”
