AFC Wimbledon remain adrift at the bottom of League One after falling to a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Burton Albion.

The Dons had a penalty claim for handball waved away within the first minute before Marcus Harness found Jamie Allen to open the scoring for the visitors in the 14th.

The hosts then rallied, forcing a succession of set-pieces which they were unable to capitalise on –  Will Nightingale and Adedeji Oshilaja both seeing efforts go wide from corners.

And the result was eventually sealed in the 57th minute when David Templeton smashed home a low, left-footed strike past Dons’ stopper Aaron Ramsdale.

Scott Wagstaff nearly halved the advantage immediately afterwards but in truth Wally Downes’ side failed to seriously threaten Burton’s goal.

The result means AFC Wimbledon are now winless in seven games and 10 points adrift of safety at the foot of the table while Burton Albion move up to 12th, nine points off the top-six.
