Hatters Rated: Gateshead v Luton Town
Mark Tyler: 6 - Made the only save of the game at the death but was twice indebted to McNulty for clearing off the line.
Jonathan Smith: 6 - First half booking curtailed his influence as he was again too hurried in possession.
Steve McNulty: 8 - Centre-half was the outstanding performer on the day as he twice cleared off the line and bossed the backline.
Jake Howells: 6.5 - Welshman was a real threat on the flank, but without ever really shedding the shackles.
Scott Griffiths: 6.5 - Skinned once, but stuck to his task well against another lively winger.
Andy Parry: 6 - Far too quiet in the centre of midfield as he never really seemed to get into the game.
Luke Guttridge: 6.5 - Frittered away Luton’s best two chances with poor finishes, but was again Town’s most influential midfielder.
Ronnie Henry: 6.5 - Skipper made a couple of important interventions on a day when all Town’s defenders had to be switched on.
Paul Benson: 6.5 - Was well marshalled by Heed’s defence, but didn’t give them a moment’s rest.
Andre Gray: 6 - Never really got free of the Tynesiders’ back four, but did make a nuisance of himself.
Alex Lacey: 6.5 - Youngster battled hard against old head Hatch as he helped the Hatters to another clean sheet.
Mark Cullen (sub): 6 - Got the ball down and looked to run at Gateshead’s defence whenever possible.
Alex Wall (sub): 5.5 - Late substitute was unable to spark Luton during his brief cameo.
