Stuart Fleetwood netted twice, while Ryan Brunt and John Paul Kissock were both on target.

Assistant manager Alan Neilson said: “It was a very good team performance from the goalkeeper up to the strikers, on a heavy, bobbly pitch.

“With the rain we had on Monday it was a little bit soft in certain areas but the application of the lads was superb. They worked really hard and played some really good football.

“All the goals were very well taken, Robbie Willmott hit the post with a long range shot too and we forced keeper into some good saves.

“Fleets got two which is good for his confidence, while Ryan Brunt’s goal was a real good finish too.”

Luton selected a strong side for the clash, which included the fit-again Ed Asafu-Adjaye.

The defender hasn’t featured for Town since his red card at AFC Telford in September before he suffered a hairline fracture to his foot during a friendly with St Neots Town.

Neilson continued: “Ed’s come back from his broken foot now.

“He’s done well in training and like all the lads, the camp are a lot happier now with a win at Tamworth and then Wycombe.”

Luton’s youngsters gained further match practice too as Lewis Kidd, Alex Lacey and JJ O’Donnell all played 90 minutes.

Hatters: Lewis Kidd, Curtis Osano, JJ O’Donnell, Ed Asafu-Adjaye, Alex Lacey, Robbie Willmott, Christian Tavernier, Godfrey Poku, John Paul Kissock, Stuart Fleetwood, Ryan Brunt.
