AFC Wimbledon’s impressive recent form continued with a 2-1 win over Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.
The Dons dominated throughout and earned a penalty in the 11th minute when Steve Seddon was bundled to the floor by Scunthorpe keeper Jak Alnwick.
And although Alnwick made amends by saving Joe Pigott’s resultant spot-kick, the Dons were undeterred, taking the lead in the 23rd minute.
Anthony Wordsworth swung in a free-kick with James Hanson’s glancing header making it 1-0 before the forward struck again six minutes later – rifling home from just inside the area.
Scunthorpe offered little in response before Lee Novak halved the deficit with 12 minutes left to play when Dons’ stopper Aaron Ramsdale was unable to hold on to an effort.
However, Wimbledon hung on to extend their unbeaten run on the road to five games and now only remain in the drop zone by virtue of a poor goal difference.
