AFC Wimbledon and Dagenham & Redbridge played out a lively draw in League Two.

Dwight Gayle was brought down in the box by Dons midfielder Sammy Moore, but his spot-kick was saved by Seb Brown, who then blocked the rebound.

Michael Spillane headed in for the visitors, only for Jack Midson to immediately slot in an equaliser.

Byron Harrison volleyed the hosts into a 2-1 half-time lead, but they were pegged back after the break when Luke Howell fired in.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

AFC Wimbledon manager Terry Brown told BBC London 94.9:

"I can't say I am happy with the performance but I am happy with the point, because it was a well earned point.

"I am very pleased with the first half, the crowd got us up for it and helped us, we played some smashing stuff.

"In the second half it was relentless pressure, credit to them, our back four was always under pressure.

"I thought their midfield dominated the second half and that's an area we need to improve on."
