Match ends, AFC Wimbledon 0, Wycombe Wanderers 0.
Ten-man Wycombe's automatic promotion hopes took a blow after they were held to a goalless draw by AFC Wimbledon.
The best chance of a dour first-half fell to Adebayo Akinfenwa but his header from six-yards out hit the post.
Steven Craig's audacious volley went close for the visitors but his effort flew just over the crossbar.
Wycombe went down to 10 men late on following Aaron Pierre's second yellow card but Wimbledon could not capitalise as the game ended in a draw.
The result meant Wycombe sit just two points above Bury in third place, but the Shakers have a game in hand as the race for automatic promotion nears its conclusion.
AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley speaks to BBC London 94.9:
"We got 23 crosses in during the game. We had eight attempts at goal; they had two. We defended well at set-pieces and we pressed and pressed but lacked that finishing touch.
"The referee said he couldn't tell it was a penalty and when he looks at it he'll realise it's one of the worst decisions he will ever make.
"I was worried about the energy levels today and whether we could see the week out, the boys have seen it out and they deserved to win."
Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"Fantastic performance by the boys, they dug in.
"What a great point this is. We wanted three (points), of course we do for our promotion push but we're still in third place. Bury have still got to catch us and Southend have still got to catch us.
"I think there will be more twists in this season yet. There's some big games to come.
"Second half I would have liked to have made more changes tactically, but we just couldn't. It seems to all be against us but we're still in this third position and we've still got this chance.
"The fans behind us were great. They were singing the whole game. Thank you for that, because you really got that point. It could be an important point."
