Match ends, AFC Wimbledon 1, Oxford United 2.
Jordan Bowery's winner saw Oxford United beat AFC Wimbledon to boost their League Two promotion chances.
The U's took the lead early on when former Dons man Danny Hylton reacted quickest in the area to tap in.
Benjamin Buchel's failure to hold Tom Elliott's shot resulted in Andy Barcham passing into an open net to equalise.
But Bowery won the game for Oxford only four minutes after coming on when he capped off a run from the halfway line with a composed finish.
United move four points clear of fourth-placed Accrington, while Wimbledon drop to eighth.
AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC Radio London:
"I don't think they deserved to win. I looked at the stats, we've had 15 attempts on goal, eight on target.
"I thought we were the team who looked like we could score, but good teams punish you.
"For the first goal I'm really disappointed with the officials, it's a foul on our goalie."
