Mark Tyler: 6.5 – Pulled off one great save, little chance with the goals, but must be desperate for a clean sheet.

Keith Keane: 8 – Tenacious display as the captain looked more like his old self.

Dean Beckwith: 6.5 – Largely sound but Town’s defence needs to tighten up.

Alex Lawless: 7 – His creativity will be key in Luton’s promotion push, but he still has another gear to find.

Amari Morgan-Smith: 7 – On target once again as he continued to look sharp in front of goal.

Danny Crow: 7 – Terribly unlucky to see his spot-kick saved, but scored a good goal and provides real nous.

Robbie Willmott: 7.5 – Pace and flair is a delight, but needs more end product.

Jake Howells: 8 – Overlapping runs were at the heart of Luton’s best moves and his injury scuppered Town.

Will Antwi: 6.5 – Won plenty of ball but more intelligent distribution could help the Hatters go forward.

Curtis Osano: 7 – Flashes of brilliance mixed with moments of laxity.

James Dance: 6.5 – Too many crosses that were easy pickings for the keeper, but shows desire and a good workrate.

Ed Asafu-Adjaye (sub): 5 – At fault for Hayes’ equaliser and, although he steadied the ship from thereon in, Town were not as effective with him at left-back.

Adam Watkins (sub): 6 – Busy display in the middle and probably should have netted a crucial second half goal.

Aaron O’Connor (sub): 5 – Tried to make an impact but was unable to force a winner.
