Luton Town 2-0 Barnet

Luton midfielder Cameron McGeehan
Cameron McGeehan is Luton's top-scorer this season with eight goals

Luton Town made it three straight wins in all competitions as a goal in each half secured victory against Barnet.

Josh McQuoid sent an early free header at keeper Jamie Stephens but soon after fed Danny Green, who lashed the ball home from the edge of the box.

John Akinde missed a good chance to level for the Bees after the break, failing to convert Andy Yiadom's cross.

The Hatters took full advantage as Cameron McGeehan swept home the second after Jonathan Smith's shot was saved.

Luton climbed to 10th in the League Two table, with Barnet 18th.

"I thought the pace of our game was really good first half, we were 1-0 up and it should have been more.

"I thought we had some good performers, but overall it was a good team performance.

"We'd like to bring someone else in, of a similar ilk to Paul Benson, which I think would be a big plus for us as it brings so many other people into our game and I thought we were first class."

Barnet manager Martin Allen told BBC Radio London:

"We didn't play as well as we have been playing today. We've been playing very, very well and today I'd say we were just a little bit underneath the level where we have been.

"Plenty of crosses went into the box, but we didn't get on the end of any of those, we were second to far too many. Our set play delivery was good today, but the Luton centre-halves dominated everything aerially.

"We've had a really good run of form and these players have done fantastically, there's no doubt about that. Today we were just a little bit below the standards we've set."
