League One leaders Luton made it 20 games unbeaten with a battling 2-1 win at Fleetwood.
George Moncur and Pelly Ruddock scored either side of half-time to leave the Hatters in control, with Paddy Madden pulling a late goal back for the hosts.
It was a tasty, physical affair but with the challenges flying in and yellow cards thrown around like confetti by referee Peter Banks, Luton stuck to the task at hand.
Both sides were guilty of wasting their dead balls and Luton's counter-attack was maintained for the majority of the half.
Moncur scored a goal worthy of winning any match in this division, smashing a free-kick into the top corner in the 41st minute.
Fleetwood's chance of earning their first points after conceding first was all but put to bed moments into the second half when Ruddock curled in from 20 yards.
They did set up a nervy finish when Madden rifled home in the 90th minute, but Luton held on to remain six points clear at the top.
