Luton made it three wins in a row by beating managerless Chesterfield 1-0 at Kenilworth Road.The hosts went close early on, Danny Hylton heading Jack Stacey’s cross over, while Luke Gambin blasted narrowly wide.Matthew Briggs’ low effort forced Marek Stech into a save, with the keeper also using his legs well to deny Andy Kellett from 16 yards.

With two minutes to go until half-time, Luton should have led, Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu heading wide from close range.After the break, Town were ahead on 53 minutes when Jordan Cook sent Hylton away and he cut inside before firing beyond Joe Anyon.The visitors almost equalised, Louis Reed sending a diving header wide, while Luton pushed for a second, Hylton shooting into the side-netting, Collins nodding at Anyon and Cook blasting over.Mpanzu was shown a straight red on 77 minutes after a high challenge on Kellett, but sub Harry Cornick almost made it 2-0, hitting the outside of the post.James Collins missed two glorious late opportunities for the hosts, but the Hatters had done enough.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsLuton1Stech7Stacey44SheehanBooked at 80mins6Cuthbert3Potts22GambinSubstituted forReaat 66’minutes8LeeSubstituted forCornickat 74’minutes11ShinnieSubstituted forCookat 21’minutes17MpanzuBooked at 77mins9Hylton19CollinsSubstitutes2Justin10Cook14Cornick16Rea21Senior27Jarvis36SheaChesterfield12Anyon33Jules4HirdBooked at 25mins5Wiseman25Reed32Briggs28Weir23FloresSubstituted forMcCourtat 64’minutes24Kellett10O’GradySubstituted forUgwuat 74’minutes19De GirolamoSubstituted forMitchellat 69’minutesSubstitutes1Lee7Mitchell9Dennis11Ugwu17Dimaio18Brewster26McCourtReferee:Charles BreakspearAttendance:7,575Match StatsHome TeamLutonAway TeamChesterfieldPossessionHome51%Away49%ShotsHome16Away10Shots on TargetHome4Away3CornersHome7Away3FoulsHome13Away16Live TextPosted at Match ends, Luton Town 1, Chesterfield 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+7′ Second Half ends, Luton Town 1, Chesterfield 0.Posted at 90’+6′ Attempt missed.
