AFC Wimbledon (0) 1 Kedwell (76)
Crawley Town (1) 1 Louis (38)
The Dons drew yet again after coming back from a Jefferson Louis freekick that took a freak deflection on its way past Jamie Pullen. A much better second half performance saw Danny Kedwell guide the ball home from a great Chris Hussey cross to the far post. The Dons could even have won it towards the end but just failed to show a killer instinct in front of goal. Wimbledon remain twelfth after a day of draws on a full midweek round of Conference games.
Leaders Oxford lost for the first time at Mansfield, two first half goals enough to win the points for the hosts who fought back in the second half with James Constable’s ninth of the season, both him and Kedwell now join Holdroyd at the top of the scorers charts. Second place Stevenage could only draw 1-1 at home to Grays, narrowly cutting the gap to seven points.
Kettering leapt several places to third thanks to a home win over Barrow, and early favourites Luton are now down to ninth after a 3-0 defeat at Wrexham. At the bottom Chester are still twenty points adrift of Salisbury after their 1-1 draw. along with Forest Green taking a rare point in their home game against Kidderminster. Wrexham’s victory along with Eastbourne‘s 3-1 home win against Hayes and Histon‘s 1-0 win at home to Ebbsfleet means the bottom eight are looking in danger of being cut adrift even at this early stage.
The Crawley match report will be available tomorrow night (possibly), in the mean time check out this report from the ever-reliable BBC which seems to describe a game that took place in another dimension…
