Neal Ardley was left to lament chances that went begging after AFC Wimbledon’s last-gasp 2-1 defeat at Shrewsbury.

At least the video reminds us of recent good times.

Dons ended a 778-minute goal drought on their travels stretching back to October 22, only to lose to a 90th minute header from a corner against the run of play.

The boss hopes lessons will be learned at Gillingham tomorrow night when AFC plan to build on a goal by also claiming a point minimum as well.

“We are not on the move enough in the box at times,” he said.

“There were too many times the ball was flashing in and around their six-yard line waiting for someone to put it in and too many of our players were static.

Chances: Neal Ardley signals

“Our goal is a fortuitous one you don’t expect to get - a mistake from their keeper - but we’ve hit the woodwork, had another one flash across the box in the first half someone should have got on the end of and three or four others in the second half, just waiting to be put in, so we’ve only got ourselves to blame.”

Despite failings in both boxes, Ardley, who lambasted his side by giving them '2/10' for their draw with Coventry last Tuesday, believed this was a better performance.

“It’s disappointing because I would rather play bang average and win a game, where today we’ve played really well and lost,” he added.

“But the boys are working hard to solve the little blip we are going through. The staff are working hard too and I thought generally the boys did the club proud.”
