James Shea was a Dons hero - Ade Akinfenwa's was something of a zero when he squandered a penalty that denied AFC Wimbledon all three points at Cambridge.

On Saturday, Cambridge had six put past them by Portsmouth, but they kept a clean sheet as a result of the miss. However, they were also left red faced thanks to Shea's brilliant spot-kick save in the second half.

“Everyone in the dressing room is disappointed,” Dons boss Neal Ardley said. “I thought that in open play we were much the better team. They carried a threat from set-pieces, but I was delighted with our boys.

“It was a high level of performance. I cannot fault them and the only thing I was disappointed with is that we did not get a goal from one of the numerous great positions that we got ourselves in. I thought we were excellent.

Cambridge had a 15-20 minute spell in the first half when they threatened from set-pieces and the same in the second half, but we were much better than them all around the park."
