Notts County 3-2 Luton Town

Izale McLeod
Izale McLeod joined Notts in the summer and has now scored three goals

Liam Noble's injury-time free-kick handed Notts County a dramatic League Two win over a resilient Luton Town.

Izale McLeod headed in Graham Burke's cross, and added a classy finish to put County in charge.

But Cameron McGeehan's back-post strike and Jonathan Smith's 20-yard effort drew the visitors level.

Scott Cuthbert saw red for a professional foul on McLeod before Noble lashed in an unstoppable 20-yard free-kick in the third added minute.

Luton manager John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

John Still: Luton manager on Notts County defeat

"I thought we played OK in the first half, we were a bit unfortunate to be behind.

"Second half we got killed early on at 2-0. We kept playing our football, kept attacking and we got back in it.

"Two goals away from home should get you something from the game, but our defending is disappointing."
