AFC Wimbledon boosted their survival hopes with a hard fought 2-2 draw against League One pacesetters Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.
The hosts took the lead as early as the eighth minute when Jack Stacey found Elliot Lee to fire past Dons keeper Aaron Ramsdale from close range.
Ramsdale then denied Kazenga LuaLua one-on-one before Lee was prevented from scoring a second by a goal line clearance as the Hatters dominated the early exchanges.
However the Dons levelled with their first attempt on target, Anthony Wordsworth’s cross headed home by Joe Pigott in the 28th minute.
And after Luke Berry’s looping effort was cleared off the line by Wordsworth, Luton re-took the lead as James Justin’s free-kick was met by James Collins’ thumping header (39).
The second-half saw Ramsdale keep his side in the contest – making a stunning save from Lee’s deflected effort and then parrying Justin’s shot over.
As the game opened up, Steve Seddon put a free header wide while Luton’s Stacey clipped the bar before the former struck to make it 2-2.
The result means Wimbledon are now just a point behind Plymouth and Southend outside the relegation places.
