Was well protected by his back-line throughout the afternoon. Handling was secure though and kicked well when he needed to. Frustrated the hosts and home supporters the longer the game went on.
Reverted to his more natural right back berth and made some excellent clearing headers at the far post when Blackburn swung one of their numerous crosses into the box.
Like Bree, he covered round brilliantly, ensuring that there were no runners left unmarked. Big chance to nail the left back position down now and has started impressively.
Enjoyed the perfect return to the club where he started his professional career, notching what proved to be the winner with a towering header. Part of a magnificent all-round defensive display as well.
Back to somewhere near his best after Hull defeat. Dominated aerially as apart from the opening 20 minutes, Town looked comfortable in containing the hosts threats, Rovers managing just two shots on target.
Back in the holding role once more and adds an air of calm to proceedings, such is his ability to break up play and find a team-mate as well. One superb block thrown in for good measure too.
Got up and down for the full 90 minutes as he gave Town some real athleticism to their midfield play, tracking back when needed and then helping out with the visitors attacks.
Recalled to the side and gave the manager everything on the day. His powerful running and body strength led to Luton being able to make good ground when bringing the ball out of defence.
Led some penetrating attacks for the Hatters with his pace giving the likes of Brown someone to aim for when Luton broke. Tested Walton twice as he was always a threat for the visiting defence.
Looked far more comfortable without the added shackles of defending due to his advanced position. Superb driving run and cross for Collins goal and swung over the free kick for Pearson to win it.
Although playing slightly wider, was in the perfect position to thump a header home and make it 50 for the club. Work-rate has to be seen to be believed as he once more gave everything for the cause.
Had the final 20 minutes and ensured Town remained an attacking threat in the closing stages with his ability to beat opposition players. One blast unconvincingly parried away by Walton.
On to add some fresh legs and help the Hatters hold out for a precious three points.
Added some extra height to Town's back-line for the final moments.
