Luton, who clinched promotion in midweek, boosted their bid to go up as League One champions after a 1-0 victory over struggling Milton Keynes Dons at Kenilworth Road.

Brentford remain in the play-off positions, despite a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Bradford City at Valley Parade.
Two first half goals each for Dean Windass (6, 37) and Marc Bridge-Wilkinson (23, 45) gave The Bantams an astonishing 4-0 lead at the break.
