AFC Wimbledon picked up a deserved point after a 0-0 draw at Oxford United on Saturday.
The Dons ended their jinx against the Us as they secured a clean sheet at the Kassam Stadium in a game of few chances.
They had suffered eight successive league defeats to Oxford but a resolute defensive performance made sure it wasn't going to be nine.
“Overall, in the past couple of weeks the players have performed really well and we've produced five really dogged performances," boss Neal Ardley said.
"We will give them a little break because I’ve been quite demanding of them in the last couple of weeks.
"I don’t want to see another Northampton or Wycombe and they know that. I’ve been on their backs about every little detail and it has showed. I’ll continue to do that next week to see if we can keep the results going."
