Forest Green 1 Luton Town 2 - full time
FOREST GREEN ROVERS 1 LUTON TOWN 2
FOREST Green were bitten by two former players as they slumped to a fourth straight Blue Square Bet Premier defeat.
Yan Klukowski's seventh goal of the season was cancelled out in memorable style by Stuart Fleetwood before a late penalty by Scott Rendell pinched all three points for the Hatters.
Fleetwood ought to have put the visitors ahead in the 21st minute. Andre Gray burst past Eddie Oshodi and saw his cross loop off the boot of Sam Russell to Fleetwood 10 yards out, but the Gloucester-born poacher snatched at his shot and it ballooned over.

Current New Lawn number nine Reece Styche was eager to shine against the club which tried to sign him last season, and Dean Brill's handling had to be sure to stop his firm shot after a mazy run.
The breakthrough came a minute after half-time, and this time Brill did not cover himself in glory as he allowed James Norwood's low cross to evade his grasp and presented Klukowski with a simple finish from five yards.
Rovers looked set to return to winning ways in the league, but they were undone seven minutes later when Fleetwood latched onto Gray's raking crossfield pass and produced a magnificent curling finish into the top corner.
Fleetwood snatched at a volley from similar distance as Luton pressed for a winner, and they got their chance when Paul Green handled inside the area after blocking a drive from Gray.
Green trudged back to the dressing room after collecting a second caution and Rendell nervelessly sent Russell the wrong way from the spot.
