Comments:

Unused substitutes: Mark Ovendale, Andrew Fotiadis, Emmerson Boyce and Marvin Johnson. League Position: 2nd Luton Town equalled a club record with this victory - their ninth League win in a row. Their previous record run started with a 3-0 win at Sheffield United in the old Second Division on 22 January 1977. It ended with a 1-1 draw against Plymouth Argyle at Kenilworth Road on 12 March 1977. In 2002, Luton were vying with Argyle for the Third Division Championship.

Comments:

Unused substitutes: Peter Crookes and Nathan Winder. League Position: 24th This was Halifax Town's fifth visit to Kenilworth Road and they have still to win here. This was their first visit since 26 August 1969 when they fought out a 1-1 draw in the old Third Division. Malcolm MacDonald scored Luton's goal while the Halifax marksman was Freddie Hill.
