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

Ritchie.

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

beaten.

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.
