Half Time: 0 - 0 Kingsmeadow ( Attendance: 4,521 (728) )
1 min

AFC Wimbledon are still searching for their first league win of the season after a hard-fought goalless draw with Wycombe Wanderers at Kingsmeadow.

The first-half saw a game of few chances, the best arguably falling to Wimbledon’s Nesta Guinness-Walker who saw his effort well saved by Wycombe keeper Ryan Allsop.

It was a similar story at the start of the second period before the visitors should have taken the lead on the hour mark as Adebayo Akinfenwa’s close range effort went narrowly wide.

The Wycombe forward did find the back of the net ten minutes later, firing home a rebound from Nick Freeman’s effort, only to see it ruled out for offside.

Freeman then went close late on for Wycombe, curling an effort around the post as both sides looked to snatch a late winner but ultimately it was a day for defences to come out on top.

Key Points

Check out all the key talking points and reaction from London Football Scene below…

Key Moment

Akinfenwa’s disallowed goal in a match of few chances when Wycombe were just starting to get a foothold on the game.

Moan of the Match

The Dons constantly get themselves into good positions out wide but are continually undone by a lack of presence in the box.

Talking Point

There’s no disputing Wimbledon’s effort and endeavour but the absence of a real spark in the final third is all too evident.

Man of the Match

Will Nightingale – a class above everyone else on the pitch in terms of his awareness, positioning and leadership.

Referee Watch

Alan Young (Cambridgeshire) – let the game ebb and flow and hardly put a foot wrong throughout.


Peaks and troughs throughout with the crowd having little to get behind for large parts of the game.


Plenty of promise from both sides and while Wycombe may have just shaded it, a draw was more than a fair result.
