Keith Keane: 6 – Won plenty of tackles early on as he dominated the midfield, but faded in the second half as York won the battle for the middle segment.

George Pilkington: 6 – Was given a torrid time by former team-mate Walker as he and his centre-half partner were too easily divided.

Alex Lawless: 6 – Hasn’t fared well against his former employers and must be glad to see the back of them as City beat Town for a fourth time this season.

Robbie Willmott: 7 – A real livewire for the Hatters, a constant threat, set up the goal and looked one of Luton’s most likely sources for a goal.

Stuart Fleetwood: 6 – Far too peripheral but when he did get the ball he looked lively, before a pulled calf muscle forced Luton’s leading scorer off.

Jake Howells: 6.5 – Welsh U21 international got forward at every opportunity and played some nice football when he could.

Curtis Osano: 6.5 – Constantly surged forward as the clock ticked down and his forays almost bore fruit, but the Hatters couldn’t find the killer touch.

Andre Gray: 7.5 – Instinctive strike to open the scoring and just couldn’t get the ball out from under his feet to get a shot away when just a few yards out late on.

Adam Watkins: 6 – Looked good when he actually got on the ball, but was largely overpowered by York’s industry in the midfield.

Janos Kovacs: 5.5 – Giant Hungarian had a rare off day in a Luton shirt as he struggled to deal with York’s goal threat out wide and through the middle.

Craig McAllister (sub): 5 – So close as he bravely competed for a cross at the far post, but a cut to the head needing six stitches forced him off as he lasted a mere 12 minutes on the Wembley pitch.

John Paul Kissock (sub): 5.5 – Showed real bravery with an attempted diving header that left him with a bloodied nose, but couldn’t conjure up the skills to unlock York.

Aaron O’Connor (sub): 6 – Was full of energy and effort and his pace caused York some problems, even if his finishing didn’t.
