Luton Town 0-1 Plymouth Argyle

Dominic Blizzard
Plymouth matchwinner Blizzard's only other goal for Argyle came against Southend in January

Dominic Blizzard's strike was enough to defeat Luton Town and earn Plymouth Argyle a third win in six league games.

Blizzard scored with a fine 68th-minute shot after showing quick feet on the edge of the box to settle an open game.

Both sides created good chances, with Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick making fine saves from Luke Guttridge and Jake Howells and Mark Tyler denying Lewis Alessandra, Blizzard and Reuben Reid.

But after Blizzard's goal the home side struggled to create clear openings.

Steve McNulty did shoot wide in injury time and the home side earlirer thought they had won a penalty when Guttridge went down in the box but the appeals were ignored.

John Still's Hatters, promoted back up from the Conference in April after a five-year absence, have now not won in League Two since the opening day of the season.

Luton Town manager John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Hatters boss John Still on loss to Plymouth Argyle

"I was pleased with how we played in the first half. It was a bit more even in the second half.

"If you watched our first-half performance we should have done enough to win.

"Our players were disappointed at half-time. They felt there was a sending off in the first few minutes for handball."
