Match ends, Burnley 1, Luton Town 1.
Vincent Kompany's Burnley recovered from the shock of conceding an early goal to earn a draw at home to Luton Town in their second game since relegation from the Premier League.
The Hatters - who reached the Championship play-offs last season - took the lead through defender Dan Potts after the Clarets were unable to clear a corner.
Home fans had to wait until after the break for the equaliser as midfielder Josh Brownhill beat keeper Ethan Horvath with a low shot from outside the box.
It was their only effort on target in the match, and with striker Jay Rodriguez again absent because of a hamstring problem it is a problem Kompany must look to address.
Only two permanent Burnley managers, Jimmy Mullen and Sean Dyche, had won their first two games in charge and Kompany named an unchanged starting line-up following the win at Huddersfield eight days earlier, with new signing Manuel Benson from Belgian club Royal Antwerp on the bench.
It was Luton, though, who began on the front foot in the first league meeting between the two sides since 2007 and they went in front when Potts converted Elijah Adebayo's knock-down.
The Clarets struggled to find the fluency they showed against Huddersfield and a Brownhill shot which flew wide was the closest they came before the interval - a warning to Luton that they must not give him time and space around the box.
The second half was only five minutes old when Ashley Barnes played the ball to Brownhill just outside the box and this time the midfielder's drive found the bottom corner.
Barnes was too high with a header as Brownhill tried to return the assist favour and new signing Marcel Benson, on as a substitute, shot over from 12 yards.
Luton boss Nathan Jones made a switch in personnel, sending on Carlton Morris and Cauley Woodrow, two strikers both signed from Barnsley, but Morris was shown a yellow card for a foul on Maatsen.
It was Jordan Clark who produced their best effort of the second half, saved by Aro Muric, and they have begun the new campaign with two draws.
Burnley boss Vincent Kompany:
"Keeping Brownhill this season was crucial and he was ready for the responsibility to become a key player.
"I still see some growth in his game. I don't want to talk him up too far but he can be one of the players of the Championship if he stays on this road this season.
"For 10 minutes we were on the back foot dealing with what Luton were bringing to the game but I think after that we matched them for everything, matched them for second balls.
"The energy started going into the performance, the fans had a lift and the players performed better in the second half."
Luton boss Nathan Jones told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"They dominated possession and they will do that in the Championship this year, but I thought we had better situations, especially in the first half, and I'm just disappointed we didn't take advantage of that.
"It's a battling performance, I thought we defended wonderfully, the only chances they had were from outside the box.
"If we'd done the basics right, we wouldn't have conceded and then it would have been a wonderful win, but it's a good point.
"We front-footed right from the off, then got the goal. If we'd just had a little bit more composure, we could have hurt them more."
