AFC Wimbledon 2-0 Morecambe

AFC Wimbledon's relegation fears were eased as they moved seven points clear of the League Two drop zone with victory over Morecambe.

Morecambe's Andrew Fleming should have put his side ahead midway through the first half but shot wide.

Kevin Sainte-Luce made them pay as he bundled home Gary Alexander's cross after a lovely flowing move.

Jack Midson then scored a penalty after Chris McCready handled a powerful Alexander effort in the area.

Dons ease Ardley's 'hangover' fears

"Winning is never going to get boring, but the performance didn't do me any good. After such a poor first half, I was surprised to be two up at half time.

"We'll take the win and second half, we were spot on tactically - and we did well considering we had a hangover in training yesterday after the midweek defeat.

"I was worried going into this game as some of the football they [Morecambe] play is excellent and they were by far the better team in the first half.

"At home though we are unbeaten in 2013 and there has been a big turnaround. We don't want to be nearly men and 50 points is not enough. When we get to 50 we're not going to go on holiday, we want to plough on and the quicker we get there the better it will be for us."
