AFC Wimbledon remain bottom of League One despite a spirited 1-1 draw against promotion-chasing Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.
The Dons got off to the perfect start when forward Jake Jervis opened the scoring after 72 seconds with a well-taken finish.
Indeed, Wally Downes’ side could have doubled their advantage when Mitch Pinnock saw his thunderous effort strike the bar in the 13th minute.
Coventry rallied though with Liam Kelly denied twice before the interval – Wimbledon keeper Aaron Ramsdale tipping an effort over the bar before the Coventry midfielder fired over from close range.
The hosts continued to turn the screw in the second period and were eventually rewarded on the hour mark when Luke Thomas’ strike in a crowded box deflected into the Wimbledon goal.
Thomas could then have made it two with an effort just wide of the post before Andy Barcham also missed a glorious chance to steal all three points for the Dons.
The result leaves AFC Wimbledon five points from safety while Coventry remain in eighth – eight points adrift of the top six.
