With 28 minutes on the clock and Town already 1-0 to the good in their second round contest at Kenilworth Road thanks to Jacob Brown's first ever Town strike, the Hatters won a free kick some 30 yards from goal.
Doughty touched the ball to team-mate Luke Berry who controlled it, with the former Stoke player then arrowing a superb first time shot that flew past Gills keeper Glenn Morris and nestled into the top corner.
Luton went on to win the tie 3-2 and set up a third round clash with Exeter City, as speaking about the goal, Doughty told the club’s official Twitter page: “That's nice that, I don’t know which one that I prefer, that or the QPR goal?”It’s a good goal, it was enjoyable.
"It’s a shame I’ve got to get goal of the season two years on the bounce!”
Team-mate Cauley Woodrow also added afterwards: “Alf’s done that, a little touch to someone and shot before.
"It’s something we’ve seen and to be honest when he stepped up I was thinking ‘Alfie, it’s a bit far out, I’m not sure you're going to score.’
“But when it left his foot it flew into the top corner, an unbelievable finish.”
