Hatters rated v Bury
Fraser Franks: 6.5 - Slotted in well at right-back despite not being his usual position.
Luke Wilkinson: 6.5 - Quiet evening for the summer signing as he was relatively untroubled throughout and looked assured next to the captain.
Steve McNulty: 6 - Was so composed early on and made a number of crucial interventions, but partly to blame for the goal after leaving the ball for Tyler to collect, which allowed Rose to nip in.
Scott Griffiths: 7.5 - Luton’s best player. Defensively solid and also offered a threat going forward.
Andy Drury: 6 - Showed glimpses of promise but struggled to impose himself on the game.
Luke Rooney: 6.5 - Probably Luton’s most dangerous player in an attacking sense. Often found himself in good positions only to be let down by the final ball.
Matt Robinson: 6 - Often left too much space behind him, leaving the defence exposed to Bury counter-attacks.
Luke Guttridge: 6 - Drifted in and out of the game but at times linked the play up well before going off on the hour-mark.
Mark Cullen: 6 - Again, like most Town players, had his moments but failed to make any real impact on the game.
Paul Benson: 5.5 - Struggled to get into the match from the start. Poor touch and decision-making broke down numerous Luton attacks.
Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu (SUB): 7 - Game-changer. Added some much-needed power and strength to the Luton midfield when he came on and took his goal emphatically with the aid of a deflection.
Jake Howells: 6 - Gave Hatters an attacking outlet on the left.
Ross Lafayette: 6.5 - Lively 15-minute cameo as he went close with a late effort on goal.
