Nigeria duo of Gabriel Osho and Elijah Adebayo lift Luton Town to Final

Published on: 17 May 2023

Super Eagles eligible, Gabriel Osho opened the scoring for Luton Town in their 2-0 over Sunderland as the EFL club is now a win away from returning to the top flight of English football for the first time since 1992, reports.

Sunderland came into the game with a 2-1 advantage from the first leg of the Championship Playoffs but aerial prowess of the centre-backs Gabriel Osho and Tom Lockyer turned things around before the break.

Sunderland stuck to their passing principles, but the only serious save home keeper Ethan Horvath had to make throughout was from the head of one of his own players, Elijah Adebayo, when the score was 1-0.

Luton are through now to the final and will now play Middlesbrough or Coventry City - who play their second leg on Wednesday with the tie level at 0-0 - at Wembley on 27 May.
