Luke Guttridge scored six minutes into added time to snatch an equaliser for Luton against Macclesfield.

Andre Gray struck the post for the home side just before the break, but it was an otherwise quiet first half.

Chris Holroyd slotted in the Silkmen's first goal of the season just after the hour mark.

They were denied victory, however, when Guttridge steered into the bottom corner to spark wild celebrations at Kenilworth Road.

Luton Town manager John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Post-match: Luton boss Still

"I think the squad is strong. It's not 100% how we'd like it, but if you're saying am I happy with my squad? Yes I am happy.

"Did we play well? No. No we didn't. We weren't good, I don't expect [the fans] to be happy, but I expect them to be behind the team.

"Listen, I live in the real world. When we play great [the fans] are going to be really happy, when we don't play great they're not going to be happy.

"That's the supporters' prerogative. It's been I don't know how many years now, the club trying to get back to where they say they belong, and it doesn't happen overnight.

"Fortunately I've been in the game a long time and I understand the highs and lows, and you know what you have to do, just get back on again, like falling off a horse, get back on and straight back to work."
