Luton Town have maintained top spot in League Two by beating Crewe Alexandra 2-1 at Gresty Road.

The game was decided by two goals in four minutes, with Danny Hylton and Luke Berry striking the crucial strikes. Luton’s Johnny Mullins scored a late own goal, but the Hatters held out to take the points.

Neither side was able to break the deadlock in the first half, with Luton having a goal disallowed and both sides missing chances.

Hylton put Luton ahead just after the hour, as he received Elliott Lee’s cross then rifled an effort off the crossbar to break the deadlock.

He was then joined on the scoresheet in quick time by Berry, who fired a low shot into the back of the net after receiving Andrew Shinnie’s cross.

Shinnie and Hylton then missed chances to make it 3-0, but the home side then came back into proceedings in the last 10 minutes as Mullins sliced a cross beyond his own goalkeeper.

Crewe’s best chance for a late leveller saw Jordan Bowery head wide, but the visitors held on to take three points and maintain a goal difference advantage above Notts County at the top of the League Two table.
