Luton Town 0-1 Stevenage

Michael Tonge
Michael Tonge's penalty was just his second goal for Stevenage

Michael Tonge's late penalty earned Stevenage victory at Luton and moved them nine points clear of the League Two relegation zone.

The experienced midfielder slotted home to end a six-game winless run after Olly Lee was adjudged to have tripped Ben Kennedy in the area.

Luton's Alan Sheehan curled a second-half shot against the crossbar.

But their best chance was wasted by Jack Marriott when he was denied by keeper Jamie Jones when one-on-one.

Luton remain mid-table, while Stevenage now seem all but safe in League Two, with York and Dagenham & Redbridge running out of matches to close the gap.
