Lathaniel Rowe-Turner: 4 – Given the run-around by the Heed and did little to impress.
Steve McNulty: 4 – Harshly punished for the penalty, but struggled to cope with Gateshead’s creativity.
Simon Ainge: 3.5 – Lack of mobility was ruthlessly exploited by Gateshead’s lively wingers.
Dave Martin: 5 – Gateshead stemmed his supply line but he kept going and did get a few telling crosses in.

Flats the way to do it
Jonathan Smith: 4 – Chased shadows all afternoon as Luton were dominated in the midfield battle.
Alex Wall: 3.5 – Committed far too many fouls and missed a chance that seemed easier to score early in the second half.
Andre Gray: 4 – Struggled to make an impact on Gateshead’s defence and needed to put himself about more, but did create one gilt-edged opportunity for Wall.
Dan Walker: 5 – Superb finish for Luton’s only goal and tried to get down the flanks to supply some ammunition.
Jake Goodman: 4 – Given a torrid by Gateshead’s attacking players who scythed through Luton’s backline at will.
Solomon Taiwo: 4 – As one of the senior members in the side he was too much on the periphery.
Matt Robinson (sub): 5 – Young midfield put in one saving tackle and kept going on a dispiriting afternoon.
Scott Rendell (sub): N/A – No time to make any impact.
