Ryan Longman scores for AFC Wimbledon
Ryan Longman tucks away his fourth goal of the season for AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon claimed their first victory back at Plough Lane as they beat Peterborough United.

Goals from Ryan Longman and Joe Pigott saw the Dons bring a run of five games in 12 days to a winning end at their new home.

The visitors very nearly took the lead in the 10th minute when Ryan Broom crashed an effort against the crossbar.

Broom and Siriki Dembele made life difficult for the hosts and the former teed up Sammie Szmodics nicely but his left-footed drive flew over.

Wimbledon's best chance of the first half came on the counter-attack but when Longman squared to Pigott, the striker failed to beat goalkeeper Christy Pym.

The hosts found their rhythm after the break and hit the front when Longman tapped in Jack Rudoni's spilled effort.

Pigott doubled the lead on the hour when he scrambled the ball home from a scrappy corner.

Jonson Clarke-Harris lashed in the goal of the night from a 25-yard free-kick with five minutes remaining but Posh could not find an equaliser.
