While Manchester City took all the headlines with regards to a pivotal result in a title rice, at Kenilworth Road another huge game was taking place in League One.

Luton Town were playing host to Portsmouth as the top two sides in the third tier of English football squared off in blistering conditions in the south, with the Hatters coming out on top in a five-goal thriller.

James Collins scored twice for Mick Harford’s men in the game, but twice saw his efforts cancelled out by Portsmouth’s Ronan Curtis and Omar Bogle. Luton, however, snatched three points late on with a free-kick from new signing George Moncur with less than five minutes left to play.

It was a massive result for Luton, who now have a five-point lead over Kenny Jackett’s Pompey at the top of the table, although the Fratton Park outfit still have a game in hand on the league leaders.

Having just won promotion from League Two at the end of last season, Luton now look set to achieve back-to-back promotions and earn a place in the Championship, despite losing manager Nathan Jones to Stoke.

Harford has ensured the team has stayed the course and they have now impressively taken eight points from four tricky fixtures against fellow top-six sides Barnsley, Sunderland, Peterborough and Portsmouth.

As such, Luton are now 11/10 on to win League One at the end of the campaign, having initially been priced out as far as 20/1 with some bookmakers back in August to do so. Contenders to Luton’s awaiting crown are Barnsley (7/2), Portsmouth (4/1) and Sunderland (4/1).
