Cambridge United came from behind to share the spoils with Luton Town.

The visitors scored the only goal of the first half when Stuart Fleetwood beat Danny Naisbitt from the edge of the penalty area.

Ashley Carew went close for the hosts from a free kick in the second half and Michael Gash saw his effort disallowed for offside.

The U's finally got on the score-sheet with Tom Shaw setting up second-half substitute Liam Hughes.

Draw felt like a defeat - Brabin

He had only been on the field for three minutes, but Hughes' goal stretched Cambridge's run to only one defeat in 18 games, although they slip to fourth after Southport's 2-1 victory over Bath City.

Luton, who had manager Gary Brabin returning to his former club, stay seventh.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Cambridge United manager Jez George told BBC Sport:

George hails U's 'best performance'

"Our performance wasn't all about fighting spirit and character. It was about the quality of our football as well.

"In the second half, we passed the ball and got at them with tempo and it was our best performance in football terms so far this season.

"To dominate a side like Luton, with the quality of players they've got, for the second 45 minutes is a real credit to the players."
