Khan was a constant threat and a classic counter saw captain Sheree Oliver pick her out with a pinpoint pass to finish superbly.

Both sides pushed for a winner, with Khan denied by the visiting keeper and Moreton finding Megan Kelly, whose effort was blocked on the line by a defender.

Manager Paul Gleeson said: "Luton are well fancied, well drilled and have some really good footballers, so I'm very happy with how the ladies went about their business."

Colney Heath visit AFC Dunstable for their next test on Sunday (2pm).
