Goals from Alan Sheehan and Danny Hylton saw League Two leaders Luton Town ease to victory over struggling Forest Green, despite having Jack Stacey sent off.Sheehan put Luton ahead in first-half stoppage time and, although Stacey was dismissed for a high boot on the hour, Forest Green keeper Brad Collins’ error gifted Hylton the second.Jordan Stevens and Christian Doidge both tested Hatters’ stopper Marek Stech early, but the visitors grew into the half, Dan Potts heading wide before Elliott Lee fired into the side-netting.

Hylton went close twice inside a minute, Collins getting down smartly to keep out his first effort before the striker curled a shot wide, but Sheehan would break the deadlock with virtually the last action of the half.The centre-half worked a short corner with Hylton before drilling low across goal and in via the far post.Stech’s stunning save prevented Doidge from heading Forest Green level 10 minutes after the break before Stacey saw red after catching Dan Wishart.The 10 men would double their lead in calamitous fashion, however – Collins slipping in the area to gift Hylton the simplest of tap-ins.Harry Cornick fired wide as Luton chased a third, while Stech saved from Toni Gomez and Charlie Cooper as the Hatters held on to extend their unbeaten league run to six games.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsForest Green1Collins3LairdBooked at 81mins5Collins16Fitzwater7Marsh-BrownSubstituted forJamesat 83’minutes12Simpson15Cooper35StevensSubstituted forCorreia Gomesat 71’minutes17Wishart10BrownSubstituted forTraoréat 58’minutes9DoidgeBooked at 90minsSubstitutes4Traoré11Bugiel21Roberts24Pickering25Correia Gomes33James36HendyLuton1Stech7StaceyBooked at 60mins5MullinsBooked at 22mins44Sheehan3PottsBooked at 20mins16Rea18Berry8LeeSubstituted forCornickat 63’minutes11ShinnieSubstituted forCollinsat 84’minutes9Hylton38LeeSubstituted forJustinat 63’minutesSubstitutes2Justin14Cornick17Mpanzu19Collins22Gambin24D’Ath36SheaReferee:Lee SwabeyAttendance:2,546Match StatsHome TeamForest GreenAway TeamLutonPossessionHome45%Away55%ShotsHome11Away13Shots on TargetHome6Away6CornersHome8Away8FoulsHome8Away14Live TextPosted at Match ends, Forest Green Rovers 0, Luton Town 2.Full TimePosted at 90’+9′ Second Half ends, Forest Green Rovers 0, Luton Town 2.Posted at 90’+8′ Attempt missed.
