In this Hertfordshire / Bedfordshire derby, the honours were shared when the game erupted into life late on with two late goals.

Entering the game sitting proudly on top of the table, the fare dished up by both sides wasn`t up to scratch in the first-half, although the inclement weather could have played a part in that.

But, with the game drifting towards what appeared to be a 0-0 draw, the game burst into life with five minutes of normal time left to play.

In the eighty-fifth minute, the Hatters were awarded a penalty when the former Luton player, Ronny Henry, pulled down James Collins inside the penalty area.

Collins climbed to his feet and send the travelling support wild with delight by scoring from the spot, sending the keeper the wrong way.

Unfortunately, the lead was to last just a matter of minutes with Stevenage striking an equaliser in the eighty-eighth minute, the goal coming after Danny Newton got on the end of a corner from Ben Kennedy to head the ball home.

Matters could have gotten worse for the Hatters as the home side thought they`d snatched a winner when Kennedy scored from a quick counter-attack, but the offside flag was raised to spare Luton`s blushes.

The result leaves Luton six-points clear at the top of the table with Accrington leading the chasing pack, however, Accrington have played a game less than Luton.

Next up for the Hatters is a home fixture against Crawley, on Tuesday evening.
