MK Dons held on to beat rivals AFC Wimbledon 2-1 in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.
AFC Wimbledon was got by substitute Marcus Forss back after 83 minutes into the match, however, it was not enough and that they stay at the relegation zone this year.
There was a notable attendee in Stadium MK as Dele Alli – left out of the very England squad due to an injury that has limited his start – took advantage of a Saturday off to watch his previous side. And he’d have been thrilled to see the other MK academy graduate available in the.
Nombe, only 20, was handed his first league begin by Paul Tisdale following three targets in cup competitions this year, including two at Stevenage in the Trophy in midweek, and he showed his potential after 10 minutes, latching on a nice ball from Healey before holding off his marker and slotting house, through a ricochet off both articles.
AFC Wimbledon had goalkeeper Joe McDonnell involving the sticks, and once again he was beaten after 26 minutes. This time it had been Healey who took centre stage, as he made space for himself on the edge of the box before driving a low shot to the corner.
Wally Downes reacted using a double change at half-time, throwing on Max Sanders and Michael Folivi, but it took to split out a true opportunity. Lee Nicholls kept out his hard attempt, although luke O’Neill’s free-kick found its way at the stick. AFC Wimbledon pushed again swiftly as an Kwesi Appiah that was unmarked was found by the ball out six yards, but he blazed over.
Downes‘ third change did get them back to the match. Forss scored his first goal for the club since arriving on loan rising at the far post to head in, but it wasn’t sufficient to trigger a late rally.
A nice performance from the MK Dons frontman. He also provided a great assist for the opener of Nombe and then took his goal which had been his third of the year.
Both sides are back in Sky Bet League One action at 3pm Saturday. MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon sponsor Shrewsbury head to Blackpool.
