A six goal thriller, down at the Recreation Ground, saw Aldershot and Luton share the points.
In a game that was reminiscent of the game played at Kenilworth Road, on Saturday, the first half was packed full of goals but, this time, with Luton going in, at half-time, losing.
John Still, as was indicated in the build-up to the encounter, made one change with Jake Howells coming in for Alex Lawless, with the midfielder being rested after his comeback from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Cheered on by a vociferous away following, Luton got off to a good start with Andre Gray netting with just four minutes played, Gray cut inside from the right and his curling shot left Nick Pope, in the Aldershot goal, with no chance.
Unfortunately, Luton were only ahead for nine minutes until a Luton old-boy, Jake Goodman, equalized from close range, becoming the second ex-Hatter, in successive games, to score against his former team.
The response from Luton was good and three minutes later, in the sixteenth minute, the Hatters were back ahead when Andy Parry nodded home at the far post, but, once again Luton couldn`t hang onto the lead for long.
Just eight minutes later Aldershot made it 2-2 when Luton failed to clear the danger allowing Jordan Roberts to net past Mark Tyler.
As half time approached John Still would have wanted to get his side back into the dressing room all-square, however, Luton were to concede a goal at the worst time, right on the stroke of half-time, when Mark Molesley produced a sparkling piece of skill to go on a solo run and score.
Just like Saturday, when Luton entertained FC Halifax, the goals dried up in the second half and it looked as if Luton mighty b eon the end of a defeat they could ill-afford. Thankfully, wit ten minutes left, Jonathan Smith was felled in the box by Craig Stanley.
With the hearts of the travelling fans firmly in their mouths, after our penalty record of recent times, Shaun Whalley stepped up to send the Aldershot keeper the wrong way and grab Luton a point which moves them one place up the Premier League table and still in the play-off places.
