Luton's players celebrate with Elijah Adebayo after the forward made it 3-1 on Saturday

Luton did the double over struggling Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, running out 3-1 winners. After falling behind to a first half penalty, late goals from George Moncur, Kazenga LuaLu and Elijah Adebayo saw the Hatters hit back to deservedly triumph. To find out how the visitors rated on the afternoon, see below.

Handling was pretty exemplary throughout after last weekend’s blip, gathering some low shots with real authority. Faced a third penalty in as many games and might have felt he should have saved it too.
Struggled on the right hand side as up against a physical Wycombe outfit he couldn’t ever really get to grips with the task. Poor delivery when the odd opportunity arose saw him taken off early in the second half.
Carried on his left back role after moving there against Barnsley and defended solidly for large parts of the encounter. Caught out by Muskwe's run for the penalty, but made some decent forward advances when possible.
Solid enough showing up against an imposing attacker in Ikpeazu, although felt he was fouled in the lead-up to the penalty. Rushed and over-hit distribution in the first half was a major reason why Town struggled to get a foothold.
First start for the skipper since February due to injury and it allowed Luton to have more of a settled back four. Did well to limit the Chairboys threats from set-pieces during the first period as red card made things easier after the break.
Couldn’t have any kind of influence on proceedings in a tough first half for the Hatters, having precious few touches of the ball and giving it away more often than not. Replaced at the break as Jones shuffled things around.
Another who has been out of the side in recent weeks, but like his last start at Norwich only lasted 45 minutes before being taken off. Didn’t see much of the ball as Town went too long and bypassed the midfield in the opening period.
Part of a midfield who were barely in the game before half time as Luton’s defenders went for the early ball to their forwards with little success. Managed to get into it after the break and should have had an assist with a clever ball to Adebayo.
In a more attacking role than recent weeks with Bradley back as made the odd dart forward prior to the interval. Take out for the game-changing red card, before an eye-catching drilled pass to Adebayo, almost setting up Dewsbury-Hall too.
Bereft of service in the first half, but like the whole side, was more involved after the break, Might have had a penalty and sent one great opening off target, before displaying some good movement to allow Adebayo the space to add a third.
Chased plenty of lost causes and aimless long balls in the first half, but it was a different story in the second period. One glorious touch, volleyed over and missed a great opportunity, but finally got his goal, powering home a header.
On at the break and what a difference he made, as Town finally had someone who could link defence with attack by getting on the ball and making his passes with real accuracy. Almost scored too, denied by Stockdale's parry.
Half time substitute had a massive impact as he allowed Luton to move to a 4-2-4 formation and gave the visitors some genuine pace and width on the right. Fine late cross was powered into the net by Adebayo for another assist.
Given an extended chance to make a difference and did exactly that. Some great wing play saw him pick out Collins for a chance, but went it alone later on, slamming into the top corner for a truly magnificent strike.
Came on with 13 minutes left and Luton trailing 1-0 as he only had 10 touches of the ball but certainly made the most of them. Excellent free kick drew Town level, set up LuaLua for his goal and then played a part in Adebayo’s third.
Came on for Collins in stoppage time as Luton looked to keep hold of what they had.
