Shrewsbury 3-0 Luton

Shrewsbury Town boosted their promotion hopes with a comfortable win over rock-bottom Luton Town.

The home side never looked back after Paul Murray, on his first start since August, gave them a fourth-minute lead.

With keeper Conrad Logan in inspired form, injury-hit Luton held out until the 76th minute when Ben Davies rifled in a fine goal.

The Shrews sealed the points when Grant Holt cheekily back-heeled Richard Walker's low cross past Logan.
