Cambridge United 1-3 Luton Town

Luton bounced back from three straight defeats to earn their first league win of the season at Cambridge.

Luton's Luke Guttridge opened the scoring when he ran onto a loose clearance to lob goalkeeper Chris Dunn.

The U's levelled when Leon Legge powered a header past Mark Tyler.

Cambridge's Harrison Dunk was sent off when he picked up a second yellow card for handball, before Luke Wilkinson headed in and Danny Green sealed the win with a cool finish.

Luton boss John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"My teams taken a while to get going, are we there yet? No. This is a good win and a very good performance but I believe we'll get stronger and stronger and better and better.

Still on Cambridge v Luton Town

"I know what my teams are like, I've been doing it a long while and if you can just be patient then gradually it will come round.

"I was pleased for the boys. I think they've come in for some unfair criticism but I know what they can do.

"I thought we controlled the game in the second half regardless of the red card."
