Town celebrate their 2-1 win at Bristol Rovers on Saturday

James Collins netted his 21st goal of the season, with Luke Berry also on target as the Hatters won for the first time in their history at the Memorial Stadium. See how Town's players rated on the day here.

Fine display from the vocal keeper as he communicated excellently with his defence all game, coming for plenty of crosses. Handling and kicking was spot on as well.
No stopping him once more on the right flank as he hared up and down for 90 minutes. Set up Collins yet again and should have had another assist, Lee blazing over. Fine block on Clarke-Harris in the second period too.
Had a big hand in the second goal as his shot was touched back by Lee for Berry to score. Got forward plenty in the first period and then tucked in well during the second.
Couldnt quite get back in time to prevent Clarke-Harris from pulling one back for Rovers in the first half. No nonsense before and after though, making sure the hosts couldn't ramp up the pressure.
Kept the lively Clarke-Harris quiet for long periods, only beaten once on the stroke of half time as the forward burst through to score. For the main part though, he was dominant, especially aerially.
Wonderful way to mark his 200th appearance for the club with a highly disciplined and controlled display at the base of the diamond. Kept playing moving with some crisp passing and broke up things when needed to.
His vision and weight of pass saw Town take the lead, picking out the run of Stacey once more. Dug in when Luton had to defend during the second period as well.
Wonderful way to mark his 12 month anniversary since that horrific injury at Colchester with a crucial second. Not the cleanest of finishes but still found the bottom corner. Classy in possession too.
Things just arent going for him at the moment in front of goal. Took up some great positions but fired over from close range and his curlers didnt hit the target either. Real attacking threat though.
Reformed his partnership with Collins and caused the home defence plenty of problems, almost setting up his fellow striker. Early challenge saw him take Hylton's place as pantomime villain.
In the perfect place like all goalscorers should be, peeling away at the back post to finish from close range. Got through some serious mileage upfront as he held the ball up and brought others in well.
Work-rate was exceptional during the 15 minutes he was on, racing across the pitch to close down Rovers' defenders.
Helped relieve any pressure Town were under in the closing stages.
Managed to waste some precious seconds by keeping the ball in the corner.
