Salisbury City 0-0 Luton Town

Andrey Gray

Conference Premier leaders Luton Town were held to a goalless draw by play-off-chasing Salisbury.

Andre Gray, making his 100th appearance for the visitors, struck the inside of the post with a powerful strike from more than 25 yards out.

The first half was bereft of clear-cut chances and the second half provided more of the same for the most part.

The Hatters' best chances came in injury time, with Paul Benson looping over and Jake Howells flashing wide.

"It's a great point, it goes to show what a force we are at home.

"If we can take our home form and take it into the away form, I think we've got a great chance [of making the play-offs].

"We matched them and more. I'm pleased for the whole team performance.

"They (Luton) are a massive club, probably a League One club, so it makes it even more impressive that they can come here and we can match them for 90 minutes."

Luton Town manager John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It was a really tough game and in tough conditions. The pitch was difficult for both teams; hard to run with the ball.

"Away from home against a team with a very good home record - I'm not disappointed with the result. Can we play better? Well I think all our supporters know we can.

"We're not going to play fantastic football every week, it's not going to be possible, but we have got to battle our socks off every week, and we've got to compete every week, and we've done that today.

"Everyone by and large has done their bit, and you can't ask for more than that."
