Lathaniel Rowe-Turner: 6.5 – Reassuring influence at the back and his pace is an added asset.

Greg Taylor: 5.5 – Struggled to stamp his authority on the game and was replaced by Howells as Town looked for a more attacking outlook.

Janos Kovacs: 6.5 – Hyde looked to exploit the Hungarian’s mobility early, but the centre-half hoovered up everything in the air.

Alex Lawless: 6.5 – Held on to his place and produced another assured and lively performance in the middle.

Jon Shaw: 6.5 – Gives the Hatters a real focal point but means they go direct too often, and on the night was guilty of missing too many chances.

Scott Rendell: 6.5 – Stature gives the Hatters another outlet and his awareness and strength helps to bring others into the game.

Stuart Fleetwood: 6.5 – Quiet for long periods but showed a real poacher’s instinct to net Town’s winner late on.

JJ O’Donnell: 7.5 – The consistent youngster keeps getting better and better, netted a great goal and had bags of energy all over the pitch.

Yaser Kasim: 5.5 – First half booking curtailed his disruptive influence, but kept things ticking nicely in the middle.

Ronnie Henry: 6.5 – Vocal captain organised the defence well and helped Hatters keep a high line.

Jake Howells (sub): 6 – Unlucky to have to start from the bench but made a real impact with his laser-like balls forward.

Andre Gray (sub): 6 – Lightning pace opened up Hyde and did everything right to create the equaliser for Fleetwood.

Matthew Robinson (sub): 5 – Late change helped to the Hatters to shut up shop.
