AFC Wimbledon 0-0 Mansfield Town

AFC Wimbledon and Mansfield played out a goalless draw at Kingsmeadow as the visitors avoided a club record of seven straight league defeats.

The Dons were on top for most of the first half, but Luke Moore failed to beat Stags goalkeeper Alan Marriott when played through on goal.

Home keeper Ross Worner produced excellent stops to keep out headers from Matt Rhead and Sam Clucas.

The Stags have not won in the league since 28 September.

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley told BBC London 94.9:

"You always want to win your home games and I felt we could at half-time but credit to them and they played the conditions better in the second half.

Post-match: AFC Wimbledon boss Ardley

"They knew they were bigger and stronger as we had a makeshift defence but we stayed strong and so it's a good point for us.

"There was a nervousness about us and I told them to be brave, I said we won't be angry if they made mistakes, but then it became a game where we had to dig in."
