AFC Wimbledon climbed out of the drop zone for the first time since October with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers.

The Dons should have taken the lead as early as the 12th minute when Wycombe keeper Ryan Allsop fouled James Hanson in the box, only to make amends by saving Joe Pigott’s resultant penalty.

Wycombe’s Adam El-Abd then struck the post with a powerful header while Jason McCarthy was denied by a smart block from Don’s keeper Aaron Ramsdale before Pigott made amends by nodding home from close range in the 38th minute.

However, Alex Samuel made it 1-1 early into the second period before heading against the bar in a frenetic encounter which was finally determined by Pigott’s 14th league goal of the campaign.

The forward’s clinical 53rd minute finish for his second means AFC Wimbledon are now two points above relegation with one game remaining, away to Bradford City next weekend.
