Luton defender Gabe Osho felt his side delivered on the aims of becoming a ‘nasty’ team in the Championship this season during their opening day 3-0 victory over Peterborough United on Saturday.

Elijah Adebayo netted a towering header in the first half to make it 1-0, before the Hatters went for the jugular after the break, Harry Cornick and Fred Onyedinma converting from close range to earn a comfortable three points.

With the hosts dominant for long periods, especially on the wings, Osho said: “This is what we worked on for the last six weeks, being on the front foot, really getting at teams, especially when they come here, being such a nasty team to play against.

“It was really good we were able to do that, we've just got to build on it from now.

“It doesn’t really get much better than that as a first day either.

“Playing in front of the fans is one thing, but then to deliver a 3-0 win on the first day is amazing, so it was just a great feeling.”

It wasn’t just those on the pitch who played their part, but in the stands too as buoyed on by a red-hot atmosphere from the Kenilworth Road faithful, with 10,000 fans allowed back inside the stadium for the first time since February 2020, the hosts simply thrived on the occasion.

The same couldn’t be said for Peterborough at times though, as getting his first experience of playing in front of Town’s supporters, Osho added: "I heard so, so much about it for the last year and finally getting to play in front of the fans, it was honestly electric so I’m just happy to be here.”
