However, the Hatters stay hot on the leaders' heels thanks to Tony Thorpe's 17th and 18th goals of the season in Luton's 2-1 win at Gillingham. Iffy Onuora provided the Gills' goal.
Luton now boast a five-point advantage over Bury, whose game at Crewe was called off because of frost, and Millwall, who lost 2-0 at home to Peterborough. Scott Houghton scored both goals for the Posh at the New Den.
Stockport moved level on points with Bury and Millwall with a dramatic 3-2 victory at Wrexham. The Welsh club fell to their first home defeat of the season despite taking a two-goal lead through Steve Watkin and Steve Morris. Alun Armstrong and Jim Gannon levelled the scores, before Tony Dinning crowned a remarkable comeback by Stockport with the winning goal from the penalty spot.
Wrexham's defeat allowed Watford into sixth spot with a goalless draw at home to Notts County. Gary Owers volleyed Bristol City's winner in a 3-2 victory over Shrewsbury with only three minutes left at Ashton Gate, while City's neighbours, Bristol Rovers, lost 1-0 at Bournemouth.Reuse content
