Half Time: 0 - 2 Kingsmeadow ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

AFC Wimbledon dropped back into the League One relegation places with a comprehensive 3-0 loss to high-flying Hull City at Plough Lane.

Despite Jack Rudoni winning a free-kick in the fourth minute, the Dons were virtually chanceless for the remaining 90 minutes.

Hull’s dominance eventually told in the 24th minute when Josh Magennis converted from the penalty spot after Keane Lewis-Potter was brought down by Ben Heneghan.

And the two Hull players combined again ten minutes later only for Lewis-Potter to round Dons keeper Sam Walker and see his effort graze the post after Magennis’ through ball.

However, Hull did double their lead two minutes before the interval when Reece Burke flicked the ball into an empty net after Walker was caught off his line.

The Tigers’ onslaught continued into the second period with Mallik Wilks and Magennis both seeing long-range efforts go close.

Hull then made it 3-0 just past the hour mark when Wilks was fouled in the box by Alex Woodyard with the Hull forward, after some confusion as to who was to take it, stepping up to casually slot home.

And while Jaakko Oksanen’s shot from range in the 90th minute did force Matt Ingram into a diving save, it was already too little, too late.

Key Moment

Josh Magennis’ early penalty deflated Wimbledon and they never looked like getting back into the game against a dominant Hull side.

Dons keeper Sam Walker looked uncertain whenever the ball was in the air – causing panic which led to Hull’s second.

Talking Point

Are games like this, against top of the table opposition, really just ‘free-hits’ for AFC Wimbledon in their battle to stay up?

Josh Magennis – the Hull striker was dominant in the air and made Wimbledon keeper Sam Walker’s life difficult throughout.

Referee Watch

Craig Hicks (Surrey) – the referee seemed to be miles away from the action, in particular when Hull were awarded their first penalty.


Hull City manager Grant McCann provided the Plough Lane acoustics throughout the encounter.


Mark Robinson’s Dons were simply outplayed by a side with a great away record and pushing for promotion.
