York City 2-3 AFC Wimbledon

Matt Tubbs
Matt Tubbs' 13th goal of the season ensured victory for Neal Ardley's side

AFC Wimbledon earned their first League Two away win since mid-August as they came out on top at York.

Jake Goodman met George Francomb's corner at the far post to score, before Diego De Girolamo's 15-yard strike levelled for the home side.

Francomb's crossing skills tormented the York as Sean Rigg tapped in from three yards and Matt Tubbs headed home.

Stephane Zubar scrambled the ball in from a couple of yards for the home side, but it was only a consolation.

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley told BBC London 94.9:

"We came out of the blocks and tried to stop them at source and have a pop at them. We had three forwards on the pitch and we were going for it.

"It would be naïve to say that we've totally switched off from the FA cup draw with Liverpool - we all know what's there.

"Mine and my staff's jobs has been to get the players focused and we did that and we really revved them up before the game.

"The shift the boys put in today was great, they were out on their feet. They were literally running on fumes there - they've done the club proud."
