James Collins scored his 20th league goal of the season for the Hatters at the weekend.

Here's a look back at just how Town's leading scorer reached his milestone this term.

Collins hadn't scored in Luton's opening nine games, going 14 in total without a goal for the Hatters. However, when Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu's shot hit the past he slotted home to scenes of sheer delight.
After taking so long to get off the mark for the campaign, he made it two in two games at Oxford. When team-mate Harry Cornick hit the bar from two yards out, Collins was there to apply the finishing tough.
Trailing 2-0 at Oakwell, Luton were awarded a penalty when Harry Cornick was tripped in the area and Collins stepped up to convert from the spot.
With time running out and Luton 3-1 behind at Barnsley, sub Kazenga LuaLua's cross came back off the bar, with Collins hammering home a difficult volley, although it proved a consolation.
Teed up by a wonderful run and cross from James Justin, Collins swept home the first of a superb afternoon for both himself and the Hatters.
Eagle-eyed referee Darren England spotted a foul on James Justin, awarding Luton a penalty that Collins fired past ex-Hatter Matt Macey.
Picked out by Elliot Lee's glorious throughball, Collins made sure of the match ball by sumptuously rifling home with the outside of his right foot.
After Matty Pearson had put Luton in front, Sky Blues fan Coventry scored at the Ricoh Arena for the second season running, turning in Elliot Lee's low cross.
With Luton 1-0 in front thanks to Jack Stacey's opener, Collins had the job from 12 yards again, when Danny Hylton had been clipped in the area.
Luton's unbeaten run looked like ending at Walsall, falling 2-0 behind with 23 minutes to go. Collins then pulled one back, slotting home to reach double figures for the season, before Kazenga LuaLua netted in stoppage time.
Trailing 1-0 in the first game since Nathan Jones left the club, Town hit back to earn a crucial point at Sunderland when Danny Hylton was tripped and Collins beat Jon McLaughlin from the spot.
Collins got the ball rolling in an important win for the Hatters, netting his first of the afternoon from Jack Stacey's cross.
With Posh down to 10 men, Collins made the visitors pay immediately, finishing off Stacey's cross once more to make it 2-0.
Just eight minutes into the second half and Collins had his second treble of the season, with a lovely left foot sidefoot finish from Kazenga LuaLua's pinpoint pass.
In the snow, LuaLua was the provide once more for Collins to fire expertly into the bottom corner and give Luton the lead.
Once LuaLua had been fouled in the area, Collins was on hand to blast his spotkick into the net and regain the lead for Luton.
Up against his former club, Town had been under the cosh somewhat until the visitors scored with their first attack, Luke Berry heading Alan McCormack's cross into the path of Collins who did the rest.
With the Hatters already 2-0 to the good, Collins put the result beyond doubt after getting two bites at the cherry to fire into the net.
In front of the watching Ireland assistant coach Robbie Keane, Collins got in front of his marker to meet Jack Stacey's cross and bury his header into the net for Luton's opening goal.
In stoppage time and Luton 1-0 in front, LuaLua danced his way into the box before finding Collins who slammed home for goal number 20 and reach the milestone for only the second time in his career.
