Three goals in 10 first half minutes helped Luton Town continue their impressive home form as they beat struggling Bradford 4-0.
Luton had the better of the chances in the game’s opening 25 minutes, and took the lead through James Justin. Elliot Lee’s quickfire double then ensured the home side had a 3-0 lead at half-time.
Harry Cornick then struck a fourth in the final minutes to wrap up a fine evening for the Hatters.
With Barnsley losing 4-2 against Sunderland, the result now means that Luton sit 3rd in the League One table, and remain 2 points behind the side from the North East in the table.
Luton began strongly, with Lee and Glen Rea going close. But the home side would take the lead just before the half-hour, when Cornick had a shot denied by Richard O’Donnell, and Justin turned in the rebound.
It would then be two minutes later. Lee had been denied, before the same player was able to receive Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu’s ball and finish.
Two goals in five minutes for Lee would then be achieved as the attacker was found by Cornick’s flick and was able to finish.
Bradford did improve after half-time, with David Ball having a goal disallowed while Kevin Mellor saw a strike denied.
But Luton rode out that, and grabbed a 4th late on as Cornick bundled the ball home to cap off a fine evening’s work for the side from Bedfordshire.
