MK Dons held on to beat rivals AFC Wimbledon 2-1 in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.
Substitute Marcus Forss subsequently got AFC Wimbledon straight back into the match after 83 minutes, however it was not enough and they remain without a win in the relegation zone this year.
A notable attendee has been at Stadium MK since Dele Alli – left out of their very England squad due to an injury that has limited his start – took advantage of a rare Saturday off to watch his aspect. And he’d have been delighted to observe another MK academy graduate open the.
Nombe, just 20, has been handed his first league begin by Paul Tisdale following three objectives in cup competitions this year, including two at Stevenage at the Trophy in midweek, and he also showed his possible after 10 minutes, latching onto a fine chunk 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 more he had been defeated after 26 minutes. This time it was as he made space for himself on the edge of the box before driving a low shot, Healey who took center stage.
Wally Downes responded using a double change at half-time, throwing on Michael Folivi and Max Sanders, however, it took till 61 minutes to allow them to carve out a real opportunity. Lee Nicholls kept out his acrobatic attempt, although luke O’Neill’s free-kick found its way to Paul Kalambayi in the back pole. AFC Wimbledon pushed forward quickly as the ball saw an undercover Kwesi Appiah out six yards, but he blazed over.
Downes’ change did get them back. Forss scored his first goal for the club since arriving on loan rising in the far post to go in, but it wasn’t sufficient to trigger a rally.
A performance in the MK Dons frontman. He took his own purpose brilliantly, that had been his third of the year and also provided a great assist for the opener of Nombe.
Both sides come in Sky Bet League One action at 3pm following Saturday. MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon host Shrewsbury visit Blackpool.
