Luton 2-2 Wimbledon: Dons fightback to draw at League One leaders

AFC Wimbledon gave their survival hopes a boost as Steve Seddon scored a late equaliser to hold League One leaders Luton to a 2-2 draw at Kenilworth Road.

The clock was in the red when Seddon buried his header to put the Dons a point behind Plymouth and Southend outside the relegation places.

Luton went ahead through Elliot Lee, Joe Pigott equalised, but James Collins restored the lead before the break.

It looked good enough for the win, until Seddon struck in stoppage time.

The hosts took the lead in the eighth minute when a wonderful move saw Jack Stacey pick out Lee to net from close range.

Kazenga LuaLua's one-on-one was saved by Dons keeper Aaron Ramsdale, with Lee denied a second on the line.

The visitors levelled with their first attempt on target in the 28th minute, Anthony Wordsworth's wonderful cross headed home by Joe Pigott.

Luke Berry's looping effort was cleared off the line by Wordsworth but Luton were back in front in the 39th minute as James Justin's free-kick was met by Collins' thumping header.

In the second half, Ramsdale kept his side in it, making a stunning save from Lee's deflected effort and then parrying Justin's shot over.

Seddon put a free header wide in the 73rd minute, while Berry raced away to shoot at Ramsdale.

Stacey then clipped the bar, while James Hanson went wide at the back post before Seddon struck.
