Town punish undisciplined Dons
Dean Lewington was the latest to be shown a red card, lashing
out with an arm as Town’s Simon Ferry attempted to block a
quickly-taken free-kick in the 40th minute.
Ritchie made Karl Robinson’s team pay with the only goal of the
game, an intended centre from the right which eluded everyone on
both sides including goalkeeper David Martin. James Collins claimed
to have got a final, thin touch but the goal was awarded to
Martin kept the score to reasonable proportions with early saves
from Aden Flint, Andy Williams and Raffa De Vita.
Flint missed a clear chance in the second half and Williams ran
from the halfway line but shot against the crossbar with Martin
Dons’ best chance came in the last minute when a shot from
distance by Darren Potter was fumbled and then held at the second
attempt by goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.
