A strong-looking Dunstable brushed away an indifferent start to dominate the first half.

Falling behind to a Wayne O’Sullivan goal, the Blues fought back with Nathan Frater hitting the bar with a fierce shot, while Lee Roache was in sparkling form in the penalty area.

The Blues drew level on 36 minutes when Moses Olalaye’s free-kick was helped on by new signing Fabio Bufano and Roache sweetly lobbed home.

Town then netted twice in a minute as Roache converted a penalty after he had been hauled down and, just before half time, Chris Francis increased the lead further with another goal following a free-kick. But the Moles dug deep in the second half and made a feisty comeback with O’Sullivan scoring his second of the game on 77 minutes and, minutes before the end, Blues substitute Paul Spicer conceded a penalty.

Luton loan signing Lewis Kidd parried well but Lee Grace gratefully put away the rebound.

Dunstable ran out convincing 3-0 winners over Arlesey Town at the weekend with goals from Tony Burnett, Jonathan Cooper and Nathan Frater.
