Hatters rated v Mansfield

Michael Harriman
Michael Harriman

Mark Tyler: 6 - One let-off when deceived by Thomas’ cross-shot that cannoned against the bar, but apart from the goal, it was a quiet evening.

Michael Harriman: 6 - Couldn’t really influence Luton’s attack as he did at the weekend, especially during the second period when Mansfield backed off.

Scott Griffiths: 6 - Tried to get things moving after the break, but failed to quite find that final ball to unlock the Stags.

Fraser Franks: 6 - Grew stronger in the air as the game wore on, although took the direct route a few too many times, and often saw the ball coming straight back.

Alex Lacey: 6 - Had his hands full early on with Elder. Once Mansfield took the lead it got easier as the hosts barely tried to get out of their own half afterwards.

Andy Drury (STAR MAN): 6.5 - Displayed the little amount of quality that was on display from Luton on the evening as he at least tried to get the ball down and play.

Jonathan Smith: 6 - Battered and bruised in the first half, he had two of Town’s main chances with one shot palmed behind and hit the side-netting late on.

Matt Robinson: 5 - Found himself as the last man when Stags broke away to score the only goal. Couldn’t influence the midfield though and was withdrawn at half time.

Jake Howells: 5 - Precious little joy down the left hand side and was another who made way at the break.

Jayden Stockley: 5.5 - Conceded far too many fouls as Luton kept squandering any amount of territory they had. Never looked like adding to his goal tally either.

Mark Cullen: 6 - Striker was forced to feed off scraps, but showed brilliant control to set up a wonderful chance, only to poke wide.

Nathan Oduwa (SUB): 6 - Brought on to add some much-needed pace to Luton’s attacks and did just that.

Shaun Whalley (SUB): 6 - Gave the home defence a different challenge but opted to cut inside more often than and found himself crowded out.

Luke Guttridge (SUB): 6.5 - Great to see him back on the pitch for his 50th appearance. Some clever play in and around the area showed just what Town have been missing.
