Keith Keane: 7 – Battled hard in the midfield and made a real difference when he drove forward.
George Pilkington: 7.5 – Back to something like his best, hardly put a foot wrong and looked to carry the ball from the back.
Alex Lawless: 6.5 – Drifts inside too much from his right-side berth and gave Town’s midfield a lopsided look.
Robbie Willmott: 7.5 – Penetrating run put the Hatters on the front foot and his classy strike deserved to win the match.

Stuart Fleetwood: 7 – Proved a real thorn in the Harriers’ side but the ball just wouldn’t drop his way.
Jake Howells: 6.5 –Targeted by Harriers’ diagonal balls but coped well under the barrage and made a vital last-gasp goal-line clearance.
Curtis Osano: 7.5 – There for almost every crucial moment and his most consistent 90 minutes in a Luton shirt.
Andre Gray: 6.5 – Lively, but the raw striker was well shackled by Kiddy’s defence.
Adam Watkins: 6.5 – Put his foot in whenever possible but his creativity was limited by the well-drilled Harriers.
Janos Kovacs: 7 – Dominated the aerial battles at the back and almost put the Hatters ahead in the first half.
Godfrey Poku (sub): 5.5 – Bundle of energy but unable to get a firm grip on proceedings.
Craig McAllister (sub): 5 – Almost snuck in at the death but thwarted by the linesman’s flag.
Shane Blackett (sub): 5.5 – Important intervention at the back despite his brief spell on the pitch.
