Match ends, Luton Town 1, Mansfield Town 0.
Luton Town got their first home win of the season in League Two as they edged past Mansfield at Kenilworth Road.
Craig Mackail-Smith's penalty was enough for the Hatters as they moved up to 18th place in the division.
The former Brighton striker made no mistake from the spot after he was brought down by Ryan Tafazolli following a pass from Paddy McCourt.
It was vindication for Mackail-Smith, after he had a stunning overhead kick disallowed in the first half.
