Wimbledon 1 Latics 1.

Even game for the most part, Latics edged in front but couldn’t hold on and the home side levelled with 10 minutes left. Latics climb back out of the relegation zone though with 11 games now to go.

Lost track of the number of times this season Latics have been pegged back after taking the lead, then lost it in the closing stages. Hopefully lesson has been learned. Point not a terrible result. 8 to go.

Equaliser Wimbledon 1-1, cracking header from George Dobson, 10 minutes to go.

Joe Dodoo for Jamie Proctor. 17 minutes to go.

Goal 1-0 Latics, Jamie Proctor with a cool, calm and collected finish. Get in!

Lee Evans free kick four minutes into the second period, and the home goalkeeper only just manages to claw it away...few red shirts were claiming the ball was over the line, but didn’t look to be from this angle.

Latics looking very solid at the back...haven’t conceded a goal for 295 minutes now...

HT Wimbledon 0 Latics 0.Not much in the game...it’s not been a great watch to be honest. Just waiting for a bit of quality, a moment of magic...

Five minutes before half-time and Gavin Massey in trouble here, looks to have done his hamstring again...Dan Gardner is on.

Latics looking dangerous on the counter, especially through the left channel in behind the full-back, but home goalkeeper yet to really make a save.

Nice passing move from Latics but Lee Evans’ shot is off target.

Joe Pigott fires inches wide for Wimbledon, Jamie Jones was pleased to see that fly past the post.

Decent opening, Latics have settled well but home side just starting to threaten for the first time.

Latics lining up with a flat back four, George Johnston playing a deep midfield role, allowing Lee Evans licence to get forward...
