York City 1-3 AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon secured their first back-to-back wins of 2015 with victory over York, who failed to win for the ninth consecutive time in League Two.

Ade Azeez put Wimbledon ahead after an initial effort rebounded back off the striker over York's Scott Flinders.

Vadaine Oliver's overhead kick drew City level only for Lyle Taylor to restore the Dons' lead shortly after.

Tom Elliott secured victory for the visitors when he latched on to George Francomb's cross with a diving header.

Wimbledon are now three points off the play-off places while York are three points above the relegation zone.

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"Shambolic in a nutshell. Nowhere near good enough. Not acceptable. We're fighting for our lives at the bottom of the league.

Wilcox criticises 'shambolic' York

"The first half was a non-event. We didn't do the basics you need to do in a football match.

"I've protected people since I walked in to the building but the players today weren't good enough. They have to take responsibility."

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley told BBC Radio London:

Ardley on York v Wimbledon

"Today was probably as complete a back-four performance as we've had, so they take huge credit.

"Some of our play going forward, with the work rate, was the bedrock. There's a good feeling around the place as we know what has been our Achilles heel.

"We know we are a good team and are working at what has cost us.

"We believe all along that we should be in that top half challenging, and that will always be the aim until the last game of the season."
