Morecambe 1-3 Luton Town

Luton Town made it four wins in their last five league games as they earned all three points against Morecambe.

Luton led when Luke Wilkinson nodded in Paddy McCourt's corner but Aaron Wildig teed up Tom Barkhuizen to level.

Cameron McGeehan put the Hatters in front when he followed up to score.

Kevin Ellison had a volleyed effort ruled out for offside and Luton keeper Mark Tyler made a couple of smart saves as Morecambe pressed, but Jonathan Smith poked in to seal victory late on.

Luton boss John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"I thought for the 90 minutes we were the best team and deserved to win, against a good team.

"My teams start slow, I can't do nothing about that, but we finish strong

"I am really pleased with how we're going, will there be some slip-ups? Of course there will be.

"Tonight was a tough, tough fixture, forget winning or losing we've played really well."
