Luton Town picked up their 4th consecutive win in League Two with a 4-1 victory over Exeter City, which in turn took them top of the table.
In a match between the sides who sat 2nd and 3rd at kick-off, it was visiting Luton who struck first as James Collins turned in Harry Cornick’s cross.
Jake Taylor equalised for Exeter just before the half-hour mark and an even first half saw both sides come close to grabbing the game’s third goal.
But straightaway after half-time, it was Luton who took control with three goals in the opening ten minutes of the second half. The first strike came when Dan Potts fired the ball home after a scramble at an away corner.
He was then joined on the scoresheet by Danny Hylton, who received Cornick’s cutback before slamming the ball into the back of the net.
Cornick then joined the rout for his first Luton goal, as the midfielder headed the ball home.
With Notts County losing at Crewe, the Hatters leapfrog both Exeter and the Magpies to move up to top spot in the table. Nathan Jones’ side will look to preserve the position with a trip to Crawley in their next outing.
