Luton Town 2 Mansfield Town 3
LINDON Meikle came off the bench to fire a last-minute winner for Mansfield Town at Luton this afternoon.
The game looked destined to end 2-2 but then Meikle, three minutes after replacing Louis Briscoe, pounced on the rebound after Chris Clements was denied by Mark Tyler.
And the winger's finish made it 3-2 and ensured a seventh win in eight games for Paul Cox's men.
Matt Green gave them a 31st minute lead at Kenilworth Road from the penalty spot after Colin Daniel was brought down by Steve McNulty.

But six minutes later, Scott Rendell equalised after a lucky ricochet saw Jonathan Smith's shot deflected into his path.
However, Daniel calmly fired Mansfield ahead just before the interval after being picked out by Lee Stevenson.
It was not to last, though, as two minutes after the restart Andre Gray got in behind the Mansfield defence and fired beyond Alan Marriott to make it 2-2.
But then Meikle popped up to fire the dramatic late winner to continue Mansfield's superb run.
