Nigerian Trio of Osho, Onyedinma, Adebayo Miss out on EPL Promotion by a Lone Goal

May, 17 2022.

Nigerian trio of Elijah Adebayo, Fred Onyedinma and Gabriel Osho were left with a bitter pill in their mouths as their side, Luton Town fell 1-0 to Huddersfield Town in the Championship Play offs semi final on Monday night.

Luton drew were held to a 1-1 draw at home the first leg and needed a response away at the John Smith's Stadium to progress.

However it was not to be as an 82nd minute goal from Jordan Rhodes condemned looted the final ticket from Luton Town 2-1 on aggregate.

Elijah Adebayo was the only Nigerian to taste action on the night, as he came on for Harry Cornick but couldn't change his team's fortunes.

Luton will hope to pick up the gauntlet for next season while Huddersfield will tackle either Nottingham Forest or Sheffield United in the final game to win the last EPL Promotion ticket.
