Luton 1-1 AFC Telford

Luton Town missed out on the chance to move into the Blue Square Bet Premier play-off places as Sean Newton's free-kick earned AFC Telford a point.

Bucks goalkeeper Ryan Young had to be alert to keep out early efforts from Stuart Fleetwood and Robbie Willmott and he also denied James Dance.

George Pilkington also hit the post with a header before the Hatters went ahead through Willmott's strike.

But Newton's second-half effort made the hosts pay for their poor finishing.

VIEWS FROM THE GROUND

Luton Town manager Gary Brabin told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Brabin explains substitutions to fans

"I think we started really brightly. In the first five minutes we could have been two or three up.

"The longer the half went on you could sense a little bit of frustration.

"I felt we scored at a good time just before half-time and I thought we'd go on and score two or three."

Telford boss Andy Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"To a man we were absolutely magnificent. I stand by what I said earlier, Luton will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season - whoever finishes above them will win the league.

"Okay, we rode our luck a bit in the first 15 minutes, but we went toe to toe with them all the way.

"And the longer the game went on, especially after we equalised, I thought we could get them on the break and win it."
