Jonathan Smith: 8.5 - Energetic midfielder dominated the centre of the park and helped to create Town’s first goal before horrible injury forced him off - will be a massive miss.
Steve McNulty: 7.5 - Won almost everything in the air, but picked up a silly booking for kicking the ball away after a free-kick had been given.
Alex Lawless: 7.5 - Not naturally a left-sided player, but looks a real threat when cutting inside and gives the Hatters a real touch of class, demonstrated by his fine strike.
Scott Griffiths: 8 - Unfortunate slip led to Barnet’s goal, but the in-form full-back put in an otherwise almost flawless performance.

Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu: 7 - A number of powerful breaks from deep, but looked rudderless after he was deprived of the influential Smith alongside him.
Joe Davis: 7.5 - Youngster made a number of important interventions, but could do with bulking up and missed a sitter from a couple of yards out.
Luke Guttridge: 7.5 - Creative midfielder isn’t quite back to his early season highs and, although he showed a number of good touches, was guilty of a glaring one-on-one miss.
Ronnie Henry: 7.5 - Skipper again played with a real attacking bent and led by example throughout.
Paul Benson: 8 - Held the ball up well, created plenty of chances for his team-mates and took his goal like the experienced goal poacher he is.
Andre Gray: 7.5 - Pace proved a real menace for the Bees as he created the first goal, but found himself marginalised for long periods of the second half.
Matt Robinson (sub): 6.5 - Bypassed several times by Barnet’s fluid midfield, but gradually got a grip in the middle as the second half wore on.
