AFC Wimbledon fell to a 2-1 injury time defeat at Coventry City to remain in the League One relegation zone.

The Dons started the brighter side and took the lead through a Marcus Forss penalty in the eighth minute after Coventry’s Liam Walsh fouled Michael Folivi in the box.

However, in-form Coventry equalised after 28 minutes through Jordy Hiwula, who coolly rounded Nathan Trott after being put through by Jordan Shipley.

Coventry dominated the majority of the second period but looked like they would be forced to settle for a point until Liam Walsh drilled a shot past Trott in the 93rd minute after a smart one-two with Shipley.

The result means Wimbledon remain 21st in the table and now three points from safety having played a game more than both Accrington Stanley and Tranmere Rovers immediately above them.
