Altrincham 0-1 Luton

Tom Craddock
Craddock signed for Luton from Middlesbrough in January

Tom Craddock fired managerless Luton Town to their third straight win in a game of two penalties at Moss Lane.

The Hatters were indebted to keeper Mark Tyler who saved the first spot-kick from Colin Little after Altrincham's Aaron Burns was upended.

Moments later, a Luton attack resulted in substitute Ryan Charles being brought down in the area by Nicky Clee and Craddock stepped up to convert.

The best chance in open play saw Little's low drive saved by Tyler.

The Hatters spent long periods on the backfoot, Little and Burns both going close for Alty.

And, although Asa Hall tried his luck for the visitors, the one goal proved enough to earn caretaker boss Alan Neilson his third win.
