AFC Wimbledon 0-2 Ipswich Town, League One: report, ratings and verdict


AFC Wimbledon 4-2-3-1



Ipswich Town 3-4-1-2

Half Time: 0 - 0 Kingsmeadow ( Attendance: 8,117 (1,200) )
1 min

AFC Wimbledon are now seven league games without a win as they lost 2-0 to Ipswich Town at Plough Lane.

In a low-key opening 45 minutes, the first real chance of the game came five minutes before the interval as Ipswich’s Wes Burns found himself in space and drilled a goalbound effort that Wimbledon keeper Nik Tzanev was equal to.

The second-half saw Wimbledon start brighter with the Dons nearly taking the lead as Ben Heneghan’s header from a corner was cleared off the line by Luke Woolfenden.

And the Dons were made to rue the missed opportunity as Burn put Ipswich ahead with an unstoppable drilled effort just past the hour mark.

Wimbledon continued to toil in front of goal before the game was wrapped up four minutes from time when Burns grabbed his second for Ipswich, who also had Kane Vincent-Young sent-off for a second bookable offence at the death.

Key Points

Key Moment

Luke Woolfenden’s goal bound clearance just after half-time stopped Wimbledon taking the lead and swung the momentum in Ipswich’s direction.

Moan of the Match

Wimbledon’s lack of confidence and quality in front of goal once again left their supporters frustrated as they are now seven league games without a win.

Talking Point

Without an experienced striker or Alex Woodyard’s presence in midfield, Wimbledon’s young attackers looked lost – surely at least one new arrival is needed before the end of this month?

Man of the Match

Ben Heneghan – looked comfortable in defence and one of Wimbledon’s only threats going forward.

Referee Watch

Lee Swabey (Devon) – let the game flow and only blew when absolutely necessarily.


A packed away end and a vocal home support probably stopped the residents of the overlooking Plough Lane flats from getting an early night.


Another game where Wimbledon barely threatened the opposition’s goal. A proven goalscorer is desperately needed before the window shuts otherwise it will be a long, hard end to the season.
