ONE mistake cost AFC Wimbledon the points against Barnet, according to manager Neal Ardley.
The Dons boss felt his side were the better team over the course of this afternoon's relegation dogfight with the Bees before a late slip from Chris Hussey proved costly.
Keanu Marsh-Brown took full advantage of the error to snatch victory for Edgar Davids' side and leave Ardley scratching his head as to how his boys had come away empty-handed.
Ardley said: “It felt like there was only one team that was going to win it. We tinkered with it slightly in the second-half and had the wind in our favour. It wasn't great quality or conditions but we felt if we got our set-pieces right today we might benefit from one.
“We had enough set-pieces but at times the delivery wasn't good enough and at times the movement and desire in the box wasn't good enough. Nobody would have complained if we'd won the game 1-0 from a set-piece today.
“I thought we were the better team and talked about doing nothing silly in our half and avoiding mistakes – we felt that was the only way they'd get in. Unfortunately it's cost us.”
The Dons must pick themselves up again next weekend as they continue their fight for League Two survival at Bristol Rovers.
