AFC Wimbledon 2-1 York City

Jake Reeves
Jake Reeves' winner was his first goal of the season

Jake Reeves boosted AFC Wimbledon's play-off hopes with a brilliant injury-time winner against strugglers York.

City captain Russell Penn opened the scoring by converting rebound after Vadaine Oliver's effort was blocked.

The home side drew level when Dannie Bulman's fiercely-driven cross was bundled in by Rhys Murphy.

The game looked to be heading for a draw until Reeves controlled with his chest and struck a 30-yard volley past York keeper Scott Flinders.

The Dons remained ninth in the table, but just three points behind London rivals Leyton Orient in seventh, while York are still 23rd, seven points from safety.

Ardley on Wimbledon v York

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC Radio London: "We went with the three up front and from that moment on it was just one-way traffic.

"I'd have been disappointed if we'd come away with only a point.

"The quality we've got in that team; this is the best the squad's ever been. We've got that to go to war with for nine more games."
