Another shut out for the Dons

Hard-earned point on the road

10 December 2022

AFC Wimbledon picked up another clean sheet on Saturday afternoon as we drew 0-0 away at Swindon Town.

Our latest shut out means we have now gone five league games in a row without conceding – a defensive effort that certainly gives us a platform for success this season.

Today’s match was a game of few chances, with Josh Davison going closest for the Dons in the first-half. 

Above all it’s another point on the board that keeps us well in contention for the League Two play-off places at the time of writing.

Johnnie Jackson named an unchanged starting 11 from our 1-0 win over Grimsby Town. Meanwhile Nathan Young-Coombes made his long awaited return from injury to feature on the bench alongside the likes of George Marsh and Chris Gunter.

There was an early chance for the Dons as we got into our rhythm quickly with Davison seeing his left-footed effort well saved by Sol Brynn after good approach play by Ethan Chislett.

Chislett was then presented with a chance of his own after Brynn miscued his clearance, however our midfielder could only volley the ball straight back at the keeper.

Swindon enjoyed a spell of pressure just past the 20 minute mark, but we stood up well to the task of clearing our lines. Jonny Williams went closest for the hosts in the first-half, with the Welshman arrowing his effort wide of the top corner.

Moving into the second-half and it was the Dons who started the strongest, with Paul Kalambayi clearing the crossbar with a header. Chislett then had another tame effort saved by Brynn, before Nik Tzanev was called into action for the first time as he did well to deny Tyrese Shade.

Rushian Hepburn-Murphy then headed over as the Robins continued to offer an aerial threat in the final third.

No goals were to come about in the final knockings as both sides settled for a share of the spoils, despite some late pressure at both ends.

AFC Wimbledon: Nik Tzanev, Alex Woodyard, Harry Pell, Josh Davison, Ayoub Assal, Ethan Chislett (Kyle Hudlin), Ryley Towler, Paris Maghoma, Jack Currie, Paul Kalambayi, Huseyin Biler
