  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • 90+5' There's the final whistle! The fairytale is not to be, as AFC Wimbledon go down 2-1 at MK Dons after an amazing stoppage time winner from Jon Otsemobor.
    • 90+4' Last chance Wimbledon as they have a throw on the right, deep inside MK Dons territory.
    • 90+3' That might not please neutrals, but you HAVE to see that goal. Amazing finish. He definitely meant it.
    • 90+2' GOAL!! WHAT A GOAL!! MK DONS HAVE WON IT!! So cruel for Wimbledon, but that is an amazing strike from Jon Ostemobor! The ball is half-cleared from a corner, it gets fired back in and Otsemobor flicks it in with the most nonchalant of backheels!
    • 90+1' The corner comes to nothing. Meanwhile, Pim Balkestein is on for Wimbledon and there will be four minutes of added time.
    • 90' SO CLOSE WIMBLEDON!! A defensive mix-up, Steven Gregory races in on goal and David Martin produces a brilliant save to tip the ball behind!
    • 89' Lewington delivers an inswinging free-kick, but it is headed away from goal and Wimbledon scramble it clear.
    • 88' Another late challenge on Gleeson, who has taken a bit of a battering today. This is a good opportunity,
    • 86' Yellow card Tony Ajala - you have to say that was coming.
    • 84' Neither side playing with much imagination at the moment...
    • 83' Entering the final stages here, and a replay at Kingston-upon-Thames looms.
    • 81' Wimbledon change: Huw Johnson is on for Luke Moore.
    • 80' Here's Alan Smith! He comes on sporting a wavy hairdo, and replaces Ryan Lowe.
    • 79' Alan Smith is about to come on (the ex-Leeds, Manchester United and Newcastle one).
    • 78' MK Dons playing with a good tempo now, but Wimbledon stand firm as Fenlon clears with another header.
    • 77' Ismail looks a dangerous player - he jinks into space on the right and clips in a fine ball... it's headed away.
    • 75' Another vital header from Antwi, who combines with Gregory to clear a dangerous-looking cross from the right.
    • 74' Sullivan picks up a sliced attempted clearance and the MK Dons fans scream for a backpass. It wasn't.
    • 73' The new man Strutton chases a lofted through ball, but it skips through for Martin to collect.
    • 71' A change for Wimbledon: Charlie Strutton comes on for Byron Harrison.
    • 69' Goal disallowed! Bowditch with a long ball for Ismail who cushions a lay-off to Lowe to finish into an empty net. But there's an offside flag up against the sub Ismael.
    • 67' The match has gone into something of a lull. Wimbledon are not getting carried away. A draw and a home replay would be a great result for them - if not the FA, the Police, MK Dons or anyone else.
    • 66' A change for MK Dons: Zeil Ismail is on for Angelo Balanta - he is an 18-year-old winger on loan from Wolves.
    • 64' Bad tackle on Gleeson by Ajala, who is fortunate not to see a yellow card.
    • 63' The TV cameras treat us to a shot of Pete Winkleman looking fidgety in the stands.
    • 61' That Midson goal in two words: Keith Houchen. Cracking cross from Ajala, too.
    • 60' Magnificent header - less good was the pitch invasion that followed the goal. The playing area has been cleared fairly quickly - Midson booked for his celebration.
    • 59' GOAL!! AFC WIMBLEDON LEVEL!! Jack Midson with a diving header in front of the away fans!! He meets a right-sided cross with a good connection and it beats David Martin! What a moment.
    • 56' Stacy Long's clipped free-kick finds the head of Antwi, but it then drops to a MK Dons player. A wasted opportunity.
    • 55' Wimbledon win a free-kick for a clear foul on Byron Harrison 30 yards from goal.
    • 53' Eurosport's Harry Maidment tweets: "Yado Mambo, no.15 for AFC Wimbledon. Whoever's squad number is 5 is ruining a good joke. #facup" Hmm, don't know about 'good'...
    • 52' The second half is following much the same pattern as the first, with Wimbledon struggling to build anything. They don't want to leave themselves too open at the back, but they will need to commit more men forward at some point.
    • 50' MK Dons want a penalty as Balanta whacks into a defender's arm. Referee Mathieson says corner, and that looks a decent decision. Not intentional.
    • 48' Gleeson goes for goal from long range again, but this effort is closer to the corner flag.
    • 47' Dean Lewington bends a nicely-shaped free-kick towards the top-right corner, but it does not have a lot of pace and Sullivan tips it away easily enough.
    • 46' The second half is under way, and MK Dons have an early chance from a free-kick.
    • 45+2' That's half-time, and Wimbledon's excellent work has been undermined by that moment of brilliance from Stephen Gleeson. The visitors need something special to keep their upset hopes alive.
    • 45+1' That really was a brilliant goal from Gleeson. No chance for the 42-year-old Neil Sullivan. Though I suspect that odd cliche about having two goalkeepers might apply.
    • 45' GOAL!! What a strike!! MK Dons take the lead with a thumping 30-yarder from Stephen Gleeson. Fantastic hit. Take that, little guy!
    • 43' Very good half from Wimbeldon's Will Antwi - a 30-year-old journeyman now at his 10th club. Top display.
    • 42' Not sure what the possession stats say, but I'd guess at close to 70% for MK Dons. But Wimbledon survive again as Sullivan claims a cross.
    • 40' I'm afraid it's been a dull old game, really. The last think MK Dons will want is a replay, so I'd expect them to turn up the wick after the break.
    • 39' There's no shortage of Milton Keynes fans with scarves saying 'BORN 1889 - REBORN 2004'. Can't imagine they sell too well in SW London.
    • 37' And there's derby action in the Championship, where Burnley and Blackburn battle for the right to call themselves the pride of East Lancs. No goals yet. Burnley v Blackburn: LIVE
    • 36' On my other screen I can see Napoli doling out an absolute beating to Pescara in Serie A. Gokhan Inler has just pinged home a beauty. Napoli v Pescara latest
    • 35' Ajala comes storming forward from the right-back area for Wimbledon, but loses his way and gets dispossessed around the half-way line.
    • 33' Chadwick involved again as he runs onto a chipped ball into the box - it's not an easy one to control and he knocks the ball out for a goal kick.
    • 32' A decent ball skids low into the Wimbledon box from the right, but it is in front of Chadwick.
    • 30' Ambition 10/10; Execution 2/10. Chadwick chests the ball down 25 yards out and tries an extravagant dipping volley with his left foot, but sends it high over the bar.
    • 29' Luke Chadwick's pass goes out off Osano and it's a corner for Milton Keynes, whose fans make some decent noise.
    • 28' Will Antwi flies in with a late challenge at the edge of the Milton Keynes box. Referee Scott Mathieson is lenient and decides not to book him.
    • 27' Wimbledon corner on the right... big centre-backs are up.
    • 26' The ball drops to Jack Midson 25 yards out and he appears to have space to shoot, but his first touch takes the ball wide. Shame.
    • 24' Wimbledon are getting pinned further and further back and are finding themselves right under the cosh. Still, they are organised and defending well.
    • 22' More good defending by Yado Mambo, who is all over Luke Chadwick as he receives the ball at the edge of the box.
    • 21' Karl Robinson shuffles uneasily at the edge of his technical area. An uncomforatable afternoon for him, but his team are starting to show their quality.
    • 19' Balanta receives the ball at the edge of the box, turns and curls a hot just wide of Neil Sullivan's left-hand post. Best moment of the match. Which is saying very little.
    • 19' Some naughty people have been messing about with Dean Lewington's Wikipedia page. Dean Lewington on Wikipedia
    • 18' Lots of booing every time Dean Lewington touches it. He came up through the ranks at Wimbledon before their move 56 miles north in 2004.
    • 16' It's not your typicaly lower-league fodder this, mind you. MK Dons like to get the ball down and pass it around. Sadly, they are doing so almost entirely in the middle third of the pitch.
    • 15' Well, this is certainly more interesting off the pitch than on it. No chances of note at either end.
    • 13' Jim Fenlon faces his winger up and makes a good tackle. MK still on the ball, however, and they are starting to get into this game.
    • 11' The booing continues. What a very strange atmosphere this is.
    • 10' Wimbledon win a corner on their left. Alan Cork, Eric Young and Lawrie Sanchez in the box. Oh, hang on... no they aren't. Milton Keynes clear easily.
    • 8' We were promised a flypast, and there it is - a light aircraft pulling a banner that reads: "WE ARE WIMBLEDON". The away fans respond with raucous cheers.
    • 7' There are an estimated 16,000 in today, with a big black sponsored tarpaulin separating the two sets of fans. The ground always looks fairly empty, as there is an upper tier under construction - it will be finished at the end of the season and increase the capacity to 32,000.
    • 6' Played in towards Luke Chadwick at the edge of the Wimbledon box, but he is muscled out of contention.
    • 5' A low rumble of booing accompanies every touch by a Milton Keynes player...
    • 3' MK Dons skipper Dean Lewington smashes a long range shot into the away fans behind the goal to our left. The home side are all in white, Wimbledon in nearly all-blue with yellow flashes - recalling the kit they wore when they won the 1988 FA Cup.
    • 2' Hesitation at the back from MK Dons as the goalkeeper Martin is stuck on his heels and eventually comes out to claim a high ball - but he made it harder than it needed to be,
    • 1' Game on! After all the talk, the game is under way. As reprehensible as the club's uprooting was, I can't help but feel a little sympathy for the fans, players and manager of MK Dons.
    • 12:29 For more on the significance of this game, read the fine piece by Jim White in yesterday's Telegraph. MK Dons v AFC Wimbledon: more than just a game
    • 12:27 Out come the teams! Many AFC Wimbledon fans have boycotted the game, refusing to acknowledge MK Dons' existence - many of those in the ground are wearing facemasks or even fallout suits on account of the ground's 'toxic' atmosphere.
    • 12:25 This is the first meeting between the sides since Wimbledon were moved to Milton Keynes in 2004 and AFC Wimbeldon set up in their place. There can hardly be a neutral in the country not behind AFC, but to quote a sign held up by the home fans: "We're keeping the Dons, just get over it!" Easier said than done, I suspect.

  1. Bilbo Truth hurt, oh yes newbie footie fan

    From clan, on Sat 8 Dec 17:47
  2. No need to be as childish as the people arguing on BOTH­ sides of this story, but as an MK Dons fan i Ioved the­ game and the fact that we won because so many people­ were gunning for us to lose. The original Wimbledon had­ only themselves to blame for their demise, and their­ move to MK not only saved them but it made them a­ better club in several ways. Plenty of old Dons fans­ support this new club because this is the one that­ moved. I hate being told we have no history because we­ do, and it merely entered a new chapter with the move­ to MK, a move that occurred almost ten years ago by the­ way. AFC started from scratch and will probably always­ be merely a shadow. I congratulate them on their swift­ rise through the leagues but with their setup it's­ probably not sustainable. Talk about hypocrisy too,­ you call us thieves when all that happened was a club­ in crisis moved to us, but AFC leeched themselves onto­ a club that didn't even hail from their borough and­ now they've destroyed it and dwell in its carcass.­ At MK we have a little something called infrastructure­ which will almost certainly see us become a top team­ before long. I was so happy to know that we'd won­ when after seeing how violent and abusive many AFC fans­ were. I was abused in the car park outside and several­ of their fans were arrested. Its all very well you­ giving your heartfelt support to your club now you have­ a second chance, and also now they've brought you­ success, but where was your fighting spirit when your­ club was on the brink?! Our fans are much better­ behaved. We support our team through the ups and downs.­ AFC invaded the pitch first and it seemed only right­ that a small minority of MK fans should celebrate our­ deserved winner in a similar fashion. The emotion of­ winning through against so much hatred was almost too ­ much to handle. Just support your own clubs and leave­ mine alone.

    From Adam, on Fri 7 Dec 20:56
  3. afc should be kicked out of the league the sick low­ pond life with the damage they done at the mk dons si­ ck b******ds. dont want fans like them in football

    From Ian, on Sun 2 Dec 21:13
  5. @ clan, Why am i having a pop you #$%$?, i was just­ wishing the real Wimbledon the best of Luck against a­ Manufactured piece of sh@te.....As for being a Man City­ glory hunter It might pain you that the fact is i­ support the real Football team in My Hometown and have­ actually been a Man City Season Ticket/Card holder at­ both Maine Road and of late at the Etihad Stadium since­ 1968.....Now go crawl back under your stone you bitter,­ deluded cretin.

    From Bilbo, on Sun 2 Dec 19:10
  6. Well played Wimbledon and very unlucky in the end they­ were in this match right up to the very last kick and I­ was worried before the match because I thought it could­ have ended in a heavy defeat.....Let us now carry this­ form into the League and concentrate on staying in­ League Two then pusn on for Promotion next­ season.....If Wimbledon stay in the league they can­ have a big future as a football club and let us face it­ from the beginnings this new club had the progress they­ have made getting into the league so quickly was­ miraculous and this should not be forgotten

    From Raymond, on Sun 2 Dec 15:39
  7. terry i dont support either of these teams. but you are­ a complete prlck and that's no surprise as you­ share your name with the biggest cnt in football. mk­ dons are a farce plastic pathetic club with no history­ and no future, the reason this game was so hyped was­ because mk donkeys know full well they are a plastic­ copy of the real club. you will proceed no further in­ this cup and will fall out of the leagues again in a­ year or two without doubt. now be quiet or dissappear­ you stink.

    From Slippery Dippery, on Sun 2 Dec 15:00
  8. SO tennis town tossers are out great news remember­ Kingstonian , they stole there ground and club. Well­ done Milton Keynes,you shut up the cry babies of A F ­ C, Sam Hamman sold them down the river and made a­ fortune.Joe Kinnear wanted to take them to Dublin and­ nobody complained,A F C shut up......... Kingstonian­ thieves you dont even play in Merton, tennis town­ tossers.give the stones there ground back. So pleased­ the MK DONS won stop moaning and grow up afc. your­ horrible little selves are to blame for your demise­ along with your so called heroes So glad you are out­ AFC #$%$

  10. shame the real dons are out

    From MICHAEL, on Sun 2 Dec 14:26
  11. BAHAHAHAHAHA! F*ck Wimbledon. Your club went down­ because there weren't enough real "fans"­ to help it when it was in trouble. It was always on­ the verge of bankruptcy as it had so few fans attending­ it had to groundshare with Crystal Palace. Joke club,­ joke fans.

    From Robert Jardine, on Sun 2 Dec 14:22
