Cardiff City boss Steve Morison believes his young striker Isaak Davies was hung out to dry in the recent transfer stalemate with Burnley. A fee of £2.5m was allegedly offered by last season’s Premier League fall guys to Cardiff for the 20-year-old earlier this week and was immediately turned down by the Bluebirds. But Morison believes the way in which the deal was aired in public has left the player with a burden to carry when he returns to action after recovering from a knee injury.

James Waite scored the late winner as League Two County upset Championship side Luton in the Carabao Cup first round, winning 3-2 at Kenilworth Road. Luton went ahead on 30 minutes courtesy of a stunning 35-yard drive into the top corner by Carlos Mendes Gomes, but were pegged back six minutes later as Lewis Collins equalised.
