Ryan Brunt's 94th minute winner gave Argyle a deserved 2-1 win against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

It proved to be a cracking finish to a game where Argyle dominated the first half with the scoreline affected by injuries to both sides during the game and a sending off for Luton's Ryan Hall.

It was a fully deserved win for the Greens with Brunt's goal coming deep into injury time and Carl McHugh's 17th minute glancing header grabbing the three points and extending Argyle's lead at the top of League Two to four points.

The scenes at the end with the players celebrating with the fans will live long in the memory.
The reaction from the players at the final whistle showed what a crucial win this is. They were pumped.

We had to adjust in defence with Peter Hartley going off injured and McHugh stepping back, this unsettled us and Luton took advantage and equalised.
We were helped by a second yellow for Luton player Hall and switched from hanging on for the draw to going for the win.
Trickery from Craig Tanner set up Oscar Threlkeld who crossed for Brunt who thumped in the winner.

We dominated the first half, moving the ball well from side to side, Luton couldn't cope with Tanner and Gregg Wylde on the wings. Graham Carey was orchestrating our play, such a clever player.
The first goal came from a short corner fed to Tanner, his shot was flicked on by McHugh. 1-0.

Harim Boateng and Wylde missed good chances and Carey had a shot saved. Luton threatened briefly just before half time but we were never in danger.
Would our missed chances come back to haunt us?

The second half saw more attacking threat from Luton while we tried to catch them on the counter attack but still didn't resort to long balls to Brunt and instead used the wings.

Hartley went off with what looked like a hamstring injury and Luton took advantage and scored a scrappy goal.

We were hanging on a bit and it seemed Argyle manager Derekk Adams was happy with a draw after replacing Wylde with Threlkeld.

Right at the death Threlkeld ran into the box to receive a pass from Tanner and there was Brunt to finish off and score the winner.

Amazing scenes at the end, this was a big big win.

Special mentions to a great block by Hartley in the first half and a goal saving tackle from Kelvin Mellor in the second half.
The players deserve huge credit for their work rate and quality, they are developing into a special team.

Well played lads and thumbs up to the fans who backed them throughout the game.

From looking and playing like Champions and a class above Luton we were pegged back before showing our class late in the game.

Man of the Match Tanner.

McCormick 7, Mellor 7, Nelson 7, Hartley 7, Sawyer 7, McHugh 7, Boateng 6, Carey 8, Wylde 7, Tanner 8, Brunt 6.
Subs Simpson 7, Cox 5, Threlkeld n/a.
