Luton were beaten 2-0 by West Bromwich Albion on Saturday

The Hatters were behind when Donervon Daniels put through his own net after 15 minutes, with home defender Semi Ajayi putting the game beyond them with 20 minutes to go. Here's how the Town players rated at the Hawthorns.

Although on the losing side, one of his most assured performances so far as its hopefully starting to click. Cleared his lines well, handling decisive and made two good saves, one in particular a fine tip over the bar.
After two decent displays, the full back struggled on the big stage. Gave the ball away cheaply for West Broms first and was caught in possession on more than one occasion. Overhit his corners as well.
Up against Matty Phillips, he couldnt prevent the wideman from getting a number of crosses into Towns box. Outjumped by Ajayi as Albion put the game beyond their visitors with 20 minutes to go.
Nightmare start against his former side, turning Robinsons cross beyond Sluga to give Baggies the early goal Town had been desperate to avoid. Was never overly comfortable on the ball, eventually replaced by Carter-Vickers.
Shrugged off any pre-match doubts over his injury to ensure he kept his excellent record of starting matches for the Hatters. Didnt appear to have any ill effects either, limiting the experienced Charlie Austin to very little sights of goal.
Continues to impress on his return, as he put in another excellent display off the ball. Nipped in to win possession back from the Baggies, broke play up, while sprung a few excellent passes to get Cornick away.
Managed the odd interception, only to see passes picked off as Town couldn't make the most of the opportunities. Good step over for Pelly's chance, but not decisive enough later when inside the penalty area. Replaced by Brown.
Grew into the game the longer it went on, as he made some good forays into the opposition area. Should have hit LuaLuas cross first time, while had shouts for a penalty soon after unluckily turned down.
Led Lutons charge forward, as he caused the Baggies defence some headaches when turning and running at them. Once more though, final ball was lacking, while couldn't quite prevent Phillips' cross for the second.
Well marshalled by the visitors defence for long periods, as they had the pace and awareness to cut out his danger. Still managed to escape their attentions now and again though, but just couldn't pick out a team-mate in the box.
Handed the captains armband and thought he had made it 1-1 in the first half, only to see the linesmans flag cut short his celebrations. Not too many clear-cut chances afterwards as the visitors defence tightened up.
Got longer from the bench as he continues to build his fitness back up. Ghosted past a few opponents as if they werent there, but Baggies second with 20 to go blunted his impact.
Handed his debut in place of Daniels for the latter stages and looked solid, plus composed in possession too.
Busied himself for the final 20 minutes, going close to pulling one back immediately, seeing his close-range shot charged down.
