Match ends, AFC Wimbledon 0, Blackpool 0.
AFC Wimbledon's resurgence under Wally Downes continued as they battled to a goalless draw with Blackpool.
The hosts, who had lost just once in their last four under their new manager, started the brighter of the two teams, with Jake Jervis going close to breaking the deadlock in the opening stages following some good work by Andy Barcham.
A physical contest ensued, with Terell Thomas spurning a further chance for the hosts while at the opposite end Tom King was alert to deny Chris Taylor.
The second half saw the visitors have the lion's share of opportunities, with Armand Gnanduillet failing to latch onto a Jay Spearing cross with the goal gaping.
Wimbledon's best chance arrived deep into the second half, with Kwesi Appiah drawing a close-range save from Mark Howard.
The resultant melee saw Thomas hit the crossbar and numerous other Wimbledon bodies try but fail to hit the target.
Thomas' blushes were spared in injury time when he headed a Blackpool corner towards his own goal but the ball was hastily cleared away as both sides shared the spoils.
