AFC Wimbledon 1-1 Southend United

Charlie Kelman's injury-time penalty salvaged a point for Southend as Sol Campbell's side began 2020 with a 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon.

Callum Reilly's first-half goal looked to have given Wimbledon the win before Kelman's late equaliser.

Glyn Hodges' side moved three points clear of the relegation zone, while the Shrimpers find themselves 15 points from safety as they still wait for their first league win under Campbell.

The Dons started brightly, with Jack Rudoni and Marcus Forss both sending efforts just wide from outside the area.

And they struck in the 23rd minute as Reilly was afforded too much time and space to advance and fire into the top corner.

Wimbledon remained the stronger side in the second half, with Joe Pigott flashing a header wide before Forss missed the target from the edge of the area.

Nathan Trott was finally worked with 10 minutes remaining as he parried Stephen McLaughlin's free-kick.

But Wimbledon could not see the game out as Kelman converted from the spot after being caught in the area by Ryan Delaney.
