Jonathan Smith: 6.5 – Combative midfielder was wasteful but won plenty of it with numerous tackles.

Steve McNulty: 6.5 – Loose defending early on but became increasingly important as the game wore on and anchored Luton through.

Jon Shaw: 6 – Led the line well for Luton and linked play superbly, but injuries finally got the better of him at the break.

Scott Griffiths: 6.5 – Left-back has grown in stature in the last couple of games, put in a couple of great challengers and looked the part.

Mark Cullen: 5 – Peripheral figure in Luton ad hoc formation and was sacrificed early on to make way for Howells.

Luke Guttridge: 7 – Driving force in the middle of Luton’s midfield and harshly booked for what looked a great tackle.

Shaun Whalley: 5.5 – Things just aren’t coming off for Town’s creative winger who was again stimmied by the U’s.

Ronnie Henry: 6 – No thrills defending from Town’s reliable skipper who put in a steady show.

Andre Gray: 6 – Causes mayhem with his pace and power but rarely given a sight of goal.

Alex Lacey: 6 – Largely steady but was rescued by his team-mates when almost committing hara-kiri at the death.

Jake Howells (sub): 6 – Welsh U21 gave Luton real balance and has probably done enough for a start.

David Martin (sub): 5.5 – Looked lively whenever he go the ball with his direct running but not enough end product.
