Tom Elliott's stunning effort was his fifth goal of the season in all competitions

AFC Wimbledon moved into the play-off places with victory at Notts County.

The visitors survived an early scare when Blair Adams headed against the post before taking the lead with a stunning long-range strike from Tom Elliott that found the top corner.

Andy Barcham then crashed a shot against the bar before he stroked the ball in to double Wimbledon's advantage at Meadow Lane.

Izale McLeod spurned the best of County's chances, as the Dons held on.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC Radio London:

"I thought we were outstanding from start to finish.

"We had 19 attempts on goal away from home.

"We cut them open time and time again, dominated the game from start to finish and it's as complete an away performance as you'll ever get.

"I can't give the boys enough credit - they were superb."
