AFC Wimbledon boss disappointed with goal his side conceded in 1-1 draw at Crewe

AFC Wimbledon manager Johnnie Jackson was unhappy with the manner in which his side conceded in today’s 1-1 draw at Crewe.

The Dons took an early lead when John-Kymani Gordon netted his first goal for the League Two club. The Crystal Palace loanee finished smartly inside the box from Jack Currie’s low cross.

But Wimbledon were caught napping from a free-kick on the edge of their own box shortly afterwards. The ball was played short and Rio Adebisi drove past Alex Bass.

The Dons’ 13th draw of the campaign saw them drop out of the play-off places with Crawley and Gillingham both victorious this afternoon.

Wimbledon are ninth.

Jackson told the club’s official website: “It was a close game between two evenly-matched teams. It was fiercely competitive as both teams wanted to get the win. Both teams certainly had their moments, we have to be pleased with the point.

“It’s a shame we couldn’t build on the goal because we were on top for the first 15 minutes. I’m a bit disappointed with the goal we conceded, we switched off from a free-kick and it gave them some confidence.

“John took his goal really well. It was a well-worked move down the left and he put the finishing touch on it. I’m pleased for him, he’s been really bright since he came in. He’s had opportunities in the team and done really well.

“We had moments to potentially win it. They defended very well, they put their bodies on the line when we had shots. We put them under a lot of pressure. We made positive changes to the side in the second-half in order to try and get the win.

“We defended well, they defended well. It was important that we didn’t get beaten today. But we’re going to need wins to get to where we want to get to.”
