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.
AFC Wimbledon was got by substitute Marcus Forss back after 83 minutes, however it was not enough and they stay with no win in the relegation zone this year.
A attendee has been in Stadium MK since Dele Alli – left out of the very recent England squad due to an injury that has limited his start – took advantage of a Saturday off to watch his former side. And he would have been thrilled to observe the scoring opens.
Nombe, only 20, has been handed his first league begin by Paul Tisdale following three goals in cup competitions this year, including two in Stevenage at the Leasing.com Trophy in midweek, and that he showed off his possible after 10 minutes, latching onto a fine ball from Healey before holding off his mark and slotting home, through a ricochet off both poles.
AFC Wimbledon had goalkeeper Joe McDonnell involving the sticks, and he was defeated after 26 minutes. It was as he made space for himself before driving a low shot Healey who took centre stage.
Wally Downes reacted using a change at half-time, throwing on Michael Folivi and Max Sanders, however, it took to carve out a real prospect. Lee Nicholls kept out his hard attempt, although luke O’Neill’s free-kick found its way in the pole to Paul Kalambayi. AFC Wimbledon pushed forward again quickly as the ball saw an Kwesi Appiah that was unmarked six yards out, but he blazed over.
Downes’ shift did get them back. Forss scored his first goal for the club since arriving on loan climbing in the far post to go , but it was not sufficient to trigger a rally.
A fine performance in the MK Dons frontman. He took his goal brilliantly, that was his third of the season and supplied a superb aid for Nombe’s opener.
Both sides come in Sky Bet League One action at 3pm Saturday. MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon host Shrewsbury head to Blackpool.
