Conference Score! Saturday 26th September ’09

AFC Wimbledon    (1) 4    Moore (13), Taylor (56), Gregory (75), Kedwell (78)

Histon    (0) 0

Att: 3392

The Dons returned to winning form with a comfortable looking victory at Kingsmeadow. While Luke Moore’s early effort settled nerves, Histon still had plenty of the game until Lewis Taylor doubled the lead. The Dons bossed the last half hour, Steven Gregory and a Danny Kedwell penalty put the icing on the cake, despite former Dons keeper Danny Naisbitt performing well for The Stutes. The Dons rise to tenth place with a game in hand, those three points would take them into a playoff position.

Elsewhere in the Conference, the game of the day saw Cambridge United surrendering a two goal lead and eventually losing 4-3 to Luton at the Abbey Stadium. Luton remain six as the sides above them won today. Leaders Oxford returned to winning ways with a 1-0 win at lowly Gateshead. In fact they extended their lead by one point as Stevenage, second at the start of the day, dropped to third after a very late goal earned a share of the points at home to plucky Altrincham.

Kettering now sit in second after a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Ebbsfleet, the playoff places rounded off by Mansfield who defeated Hayes 3-1 at home, and York who won 3-2 at home to the Dons next visitors to Kingsmeadow – Kidderminster. Elsewhere the battle between the Dons previous and next opponents saw Crawley run out 2-1 victors over Rushden & Diamonds.

A special mention down at the bottom for Forest Green Rovers who finally recorded their first victory of the season with a 2-1 home win against Grays. Bottom club Chester make the short trip to Wrexham tomorrow to contest the fierce local derby with their cross-border rivals.

Match report for todays game should be up tomorrow, so no chance of the embarrassment of being beaten by the video highlights on AFC Wimbledon TV this time!
