AFC Wimbledon 2-5 Morecambe

Shaun Miller scores a penalty
Shaun Miller scored twice and set up Tom Barkhuizen's goal at AFC Wimbledon

Morecambe extended their unbeaten away run to seven games in all competitions by thrashing AFC Wimbledon.

Andy Barcham curled the Dons into an early lead but Shaun Miller soon levelled from the penalty spot.

Miller then volleyed in a stunning second from 35 yards and, after Barcham was carried off, Alan Goodall headed in for 3-1 on the stroke of half-time.

Adebayo Akinfenwa's strike cut the lead but Tom Barkhuizen lobbed in before setting up Paul Mullin to seal it.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC Radio London:

"It was a seriously bad day at the office. We worked all week. We knew Morecombe's away record, we knew that they're a counter attacking team, they're probably better away from home.

"We made too many errors and that's probably the first time I can say that about us this season.

"It's the first time we've lost two on the bounce and that hurts us because we've always bounced back well."
