Luton were held to a draw by Notts County in their top-of-the-table clash at Kenilworth Road.Johnny Mullins’ header put the hosts ahead in the first half but Shola Ameobi hit back with a header of his own to earn a share of the spoils for County.Ryan Yates went close early on for the visitors when his header was expertly tipped over by Marek Stech before the goalkeeper was brought into action shortly after to deny Jon Stead.

Luton took the lead in the 26th minute when Alan Sheehan’s corner was headed home at the back post by Mullins for his first goal of the season.Jorge Grant went close to an equaliser but his effort was well-saved by Stech just before the break. Danny Hylton saw his shot blocked at the start of the second half for the hosts, while Matt Tootle’s cross was headed off target by Grant and Ryan Yates also spurning another chance at the other end.County levelled shortly after the hour-mark when Ameobi beat Stech to a Grant free-kick and headed into the empty net.Hylton nodded over and Glen Rea scooped over from eight yards as the Hatters responded, while substitute Lewis Alessandra skied his effort over from 20 yards for the visitors.Mullins almost won it from late on with a close-range effort but he was denied by Ross Fitzsimons as Luton remain ahead of County at the summit of the League Two on goal difference.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsLuton1Stech7Stacey5Mullins44SheehanBooked at 62mins3Potts16Rea8Lee11ShinnieSubstituted forGambinat 83’minutes18Berry38LeeSubstituted forCollinsat 80’minutes9HyltonSubstitutes2Justin10Cook17Mpanzu19Collins22Gambin24D’Ath36SheaNotts County34Fitzsimons2Tootle5Duffy16Brisley3DickinsonBooked at 23mins11HawkridgeSubstituted forAlessandraat 75’minutes22Yates4HewittBooked at 54mins10Grant9AmeobiBooked at 76mins30SteadBooked at 67minsSubstituted forSmithat 90+2’minutesSubstitutes7Alessandra13Pindroch14Forte17Smith19Hunt23Jones24MilsomReferee:Charles BreakspearAttendance:10,063Match StatsHome TeamLutonAway TeamNotts CountyPossessionHome53%Away47%ShotsHome8Away12Shots on TargetHome2Away7CornersHome9Away8FoulsHome10Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, Luton Town 1, Notts County 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Luton Town 1, Notts County 1.SubstitutionPosted at 90’+2′ Substitution, Notts County.
