Luton twice came from behind as a Mark Cullen brace helped them defeat Lincoln City at Kenilworth Road.

Gary Simpson: Lincoln City boss on defeat at Luton Town

Alan Power's right-footed strike gave the visitors the lead before Cullen headed Luke Guttridge's cross for his first Luton goal.

Ben Tomlinson's header put Lincoln back in front soon after but Guttridge fired in a free kick to equalise once more.

Luton then grabbed all three points moments later when Cullen hit his second from six yards.

Luton boss John Still told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Post-match: Luton boss Still

"Mark [Cullen] came in, and hasn't played what I think is his best position, but he's come up with a couple of goals.

"We've probably got three or four players that if I sat down with them, they'd say they've not produced their best form.

"As a team now, we're finding our way and I'm quite pleased with that."
