ITV News Anglia's Donovan Blake spoke to Mick Harford after the game.

Luton Town's promotion bid in League One could go down to the final day of the season after they conceded a late equaliser against AFC Wimbledon at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday evening.

It looked like the Hatters were heading for a priceless victory, but former Stevenage loanee Steve Seddon broke their hearts deep into stoppage time.

Luton had raced into a first-half lead through Elliot Lee, but Joe Pigott soon levelled for the visitors.

Top scorer James Collins' then restored the home side's advantage before half-time, but there was to be one last twist as Seddon headed home with just seconds remaining on the clock.

The result means that the promotion race could go down to the wire, although there is a chance that Luton could go up on Saturday if they win at Burton Albion and third-placed Portsmouth fail to beat Sunderland.

However, a defeat at Burton, coupled with victories for Barnsley against Blackpool and Portsmouth at Sunderland, would leave the Hatters needing to get something in their final fixture against Oxford United.
