Port Vale 1-2 AFC Wimbledon

Substitute Luke Moore's winner against Port Vale gave AFC Wimbledon their first win in six league games.

Vale began brightly, and took the lead when Marc Richards headed home Sean Rigg's pinpoint delivery.

But the Dons equalised soon after when Sammy Moore's cross found Jack Midson, who bundled in from close range.

Louis Dodds hit the post for the hosts, but the turnaround was complete when Midson teed up Moore to hit a powerful drive into the back of the net.

This result condemned Vale to their fourth consecutive defeat in League Two.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Port Vale boss Micky Adams told BBC Radio Stoke:

Vale were short of luck, says Adams

"It's probably the story of what's been happening to us recently. That's the way our luck's gone.

"I thought the 11 that started the game today were excellent. They gave it a full shift. I can't knock them because some of them were half-fit.

"That's what I've got to work with. It can't always be a bed of roses for you and I'm not thinking of doing anything other than getting them back in on Monday morning and starting again."

AFC Wimbledon boss Terry Brown told BBC London 94.9:

'We can build on this now' - Brown

"Obviously it is a feeling of relief because it's a long time since we have had a weekend win and I can enjoy my beer tonight.

"I'm very proud of my boys I think the new lads that came in acquitted themselves very well.

"I think it will take a couple of weeks to get this side to gel. But I am much happier with the legs we have got in the squad now and I think we can build on this."
