MK Dons vs AFC W’don
Sky Bet League One
12:00pm Saturday 7th September
MK Dons held on to beat rivals AFC Wimbledon 2-1 in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.
Substitute Marcus Forss got AFC Wimbledon straight back into the match after 83 minutes, but it was not enough and they remain in the relegation zone this year.
A attendee was in Stadium MK as Dele Alli – left from the very England squad because of an injury that has limited his start – took advantage of a rare Saturday away to watch his former side. And he would have been delighted to observe the grading is opened by another MK academy graduate.
Nombe, just 20, was given his first league begin by Paul Tisdale after three objectives in cup competitions this year, including two in Stevenage in the Leasing.com Trophy in midweek, and he also showed off his possible after 10 minutes, latching onto a nice ball from Healey before holding off his marker and slotting home, through a ricochet off both poles.
AFC Wimbledon had goalkeeper Joe McDonnell between the sticks, and once again he had been beaten after 26 minutes. It was because he made space for himself before driving a low shot Healey who took center stage.
Wally Downes reacted using a change at half-time, throwing on Michael Folivi and Max Sanders, however, it took till 61 minutes for them to carve out a true opportunity. Lee Nicholls kept out well his acrobatic effort, although luke O’Neill’s free-kick found its way at the back pole to Paul Kalambayi. AFC Wimbledon pushed forwards again swiftly as an Kwesi Appiah that was undercover was found by the ball six yards out, but he blazed over.
Downes’ change did catch them back into the game. Forss scored his first goal for the club since arriving on loan climbing in the far post to head in, but it wasn’t sufficient to activate a late rally.
A performance in the MK Dons frontman. He also provided a great assist for the opener of Nombe and then took his own purpose brilliantly, which was his third of the season.
Both sides come in Sky Bet League One action at 3pm Saturday. MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon host Shrewsbury visit Blackpool.
