Hatters rated v Leyton Orient

Mark Tyler: 8 - Keeper ensured the battle to be Hatters’ number one is heating up with a commanding display, including one excellent reaction save in the second half.

Stephen O’Donnell: 7.5 - Improving with every game he plays in now and had a good understanding with Danny Green on the right hand side. Claiming the winner, though it’s fair to say he knew little or nothing about it!

Scott Griffiths: 8.5 - Much more like it from Griffiths as he continues to put his early season blip behind him. One of the stand out players on the pitch in the second period with some superb mazy runs forward that got the sparse crowd out of their seats.

Steve McNulty: 8 - Big opportunity for the club captain after being on the bench recently and did his chances no harm at all with a solid display. Marvellous goal-line clearances with the scores at 1-1 too.

Scott Cuthbert: 7 - Wasn’t quite at his dominating best and could have no complaints with the penalty. Replaced immediately afterwards though with what appeared to be a tight hamstring.

Jonathan Smith: 7.5 - Harried the Orient midfield all evening and displayed some lovely vision, particularly in the second half to keep Luton on the front foot.

Olly Lee (STAR MAN): 8.5 - Midfielder oozes class when in possession, as he always looks to have time and more often that not picks the right pass. Early stages, but he could prove one of Still’s signings of the season.

Danny Green: 8 - Superb first half from the winger who showed exactly why he was signed. Stunning opening strike in Luton colours and some marvellous deliveries that a target man would have gobbled up. Did fade slightly after the break though.

Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu: 7 - Some bustling forays forward from the midfielder who is clearly still regaining match fitness. More minutes needed to fully get back to his best now.

Luke Guttridge: 8 - Great to see Guttridge back out on the pitch once more as was a threat all night, knitting the midfield and attack together with some intelligent play. Hard to see him being left out now.

Jack Marriott: 6.5 - Was a willing runner all night and but some last-ditch blocks, might well have had a goal. Silly antics ruined his night though as no matter what age, should know better than to gesture to away supporters.

Magnus Okuonghae (SUB): 6.5 - Really to see the big centre back in his first action since November 2014. Looked immense in the air and also made his fair share of blocks too as Orient pushed.

Ryan Hall (SUB): 6.5 - Brief cameo from the winger but it was an important one as his left foot blast nicked off O’Donnell and in for the crucial last-minute decider.

Josh McQuoid (SUB): 6 - Showed what a danger he can be when running at the opposition once more as from the free kick he won, Luton had their winner.
