AFC Wimbledon scored two goals in the last nine minutes to draw at Crewe.

The visitors took a seventh-minute lead through Billy Knott's deflected strike, while Crewe levelled with Byron Moore's 25-yard shot.

Luke Murphy sent Nick Powell free to put the hosts ahead and Greg Pearson's volley gave them a 3-1 half-time lead.

Ashley Westwood missed a penalty for Crewe, Sammy Moore's 30-yard strike closed the gap and substitute Christian Jolley headed a dramatic equaliser.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOMS

Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis told BBC Radio Stoke:

"We were terrific [in the] first half. With the movement and chances that we created, we could have been in front by five or six.

"At half-time we spoke about all of things that we shouldn't do and then the players went out and did it. So they either weren't listening or they couldn't do it.

"We missed the penalty to make it 4-1 and that would have killed the game, but missing it obviously gave them a bit of a spur."

AFC Wimbledon Boss Terry Brown told BBC London 94.9:

"We started off positively, and then gave a pretty inept defending display for thirty minutes but I'm pleased to say that we got back into the game.

"We won that second half two nil and in the end there was only one team that was going to possibly win the game.

"We are hoping to build on the positives, if I look at the last three, we have only one win, but I am happy that we fought back and I think we can build on this."
