Conference Premier winners Luton remain on target to reach 100 points after a comfortable win over Forest Green.

The visitors took the lead when Yan Klukowski slotted home from the penalty spot after a Steve McNulty handball.

Andre Gray levelled from the spot after Sam Russell had brought him down before Cameron McGeehan gave them the lead.

Gray headed his 30th of the season and Mark Cullen scored from six yards in the last minute as the Hatters moved on to 98 points.

Luton Town manager John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It's an unbelievable day. Not only was a it a good day but the football was good as well.

"I'm absolutely delighted. We're on line for 100 league points so it's fantastic."

Forest Green Rovers boss Adrian Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I don't think it was a 4-1 scoreline. I thought we did really well in the first half. We just gave the ball away in the second half and they punished us.

"The scoreline did flatter them, we only had four substitutes. And with Lee Hughes playing two games in under a week, I didn't want to bring him on either.

"Hopefully, you never know - next year, or whenever it'll be - we'll be having the same days as the people here today."
