Classic encounters: AFC Wimbledon

15 October 2020

Re-live classic encounters between Town and AFC Wimbledon.

Town travel away to Plough Lane for a clash in Sky Bet League One this weekend. Take a look back at previous encounters between the two sides.

League One, Cherry Red Records Fans Stadium, Saturday, 3 November 2018: AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Shrewsbury Town.

Town earned their first away win of the season with a 1-2 win over AFC Wimbledon. Luke Waterfall scored two goals to give his side all three points on the road.

The home side broke the deadlock when a Mitch Pinnock corner found its way to the back post and Dons frontman James Hanson leaped well to head home the ball from a yard out.

The first-half came to an end with the home side going into the break with a one-goal advantage. James Hanson managed to put the Dons in the lead after 33 minutes.

Town managed to break even in the 59th minute. Greg Docherty put in a corner, which was met by Amadi-Holloway. The forward knocked the ball back into the danger zone, and after a goalmouth scramble, Luke Waterfall managed to stab home the ball to level the score for Askey’s men.

Town secured the winner through Luke Waterfall in the 90th minute. Greg Docherty floated in a cross and Waterfall jumped well to guide the ball into the corner of the goal – snatching all three points on the road.

League One, Cherry Red Records Fans Stadium, Saturday, 12 August 2017: AFC Wimbledon 0-1 Shrewsbury Town

It was Town who had the first chance of the game inside the opening minute as Carlton Morris pounced on a mistake by the Wimbledon backline, but his shot was straight at Dons ‘keeper George Long who gathered at the second attempt.

Town opened the scoring with just 7 minutes on the clock as they quickly broke on the Dons. Jon Nolan managed to run past a couple of players in the centre circle before feeding Shaun Whalley on the right-hand side who picked out a perfect back-post cross onto the head of Alex Rodman, who couldn’t miss from six yards out.

It was almost two-nil after 20 minutes when Shaun Whalley turned his man inside out near the by-line before cutting it back for Louis Dodds. Dodds’ shot was expertly saved by George Long and a combination of Dodds and Alex Rodman couldn’t find the net on the follow up.

Town had dominated the first-half and that dominance continued early in the second as Carlton Morris came close to adding the all-important second when he got in behind the Dons defence but his shot was palmed away by George Long.

A fantastic first-half performance from Town gave them a hard-earned 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon.
