Oliver Burke's first goal for West Brom gave them victory over Luton Town in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Matty Pearson had come close to putting the League One club in front but his header from Andrew Shinnie's corner went over the bar.

James Morrison forced a save from Hatters goalkeeper James Shea as the Baggies comfortably saw it out.
