Luton Town 2 Grimsby Town 0
Another fine win has seen Luton Town head into the festive period four points clear at the top of League Two.
Grimsby Town arrived at Kenilworth Road on a good run of form, they`d kept three clean-sheets on the bounce and had also earned a very creditable 0-0 draw with Notts County, our promotion rivals, last time out.
But, these days, the Hatters are a different proposition as Nathan Jones seeks to take the club into League One, via promotion next May.
The Hatters had to work hard to break the dead-lock, with the opening goal coming just five minutes before the break.
The goal itself was well worth waiting for with Luke Berry scoring his fourth goal of the season with a wonderful striker from twenty-five yards out.
Earlier in the first-half both sides had chances to open the scoring with Grimsby going close through Luke Summerfield and Luton seeing Dan Potts denied by a fine save by James McKeown in the Grimsby goal.
Luton wrapped up the points in the second half when, just after the hour mark, James Collins bravely dived amongst the flying boots to head home a free-kick from Alan Sheehan.
The lead was almost extended to 3-0 late on when McKeown produced decent saves to deny Ollie Lee, Harry Cornick and Elliot Lee.
Next up for the rampant Hatters is a Boxing Day trip to Swindon to face one of the few sides to have beaten Luton this season when they won 3-0 at Kenilworth Road.
