AFC Wimbledon 2-3 Sheffield United

Sheffield United claimed their third straight win in League One as they held out for victory at AFC Wimbledon.

Mark Duffy opened the scoring for the Blades in the 20th minute after he beat a defender and then the goalkeeper with a dummy before finding the net.

Captain Billy Sharp doubled his side's lead six minutes later with a well-placed header after a cross from Matt Done, but Dom Poleon pulled one back in the 37th minute with a low header from an Andy Barcham cross.

Duffy and Done both missed chances for the visitors before Done found the net from a clever John Fleck through-ball just before the hour mark.

Substitute Tom Elliott made a quick impact and gave the Dons renewed hope in the 73rd minute from Dean Parrett's free-kick, but United held on.
