Here's how the Dons rated in the clash.

7 - Wasn't the busiest of afternoons for the keeper, but did well to deny Folivi and Kalambayi
7 - Helped keep the AFC Wimbledon attackers quiet, standing firm for most of the afternoon.
7 - Like Walsh, did well to nullify the visitors' attacking threat with a composed showing.
7 - Mr Reliable for Dons again, not putting a foot wrong.
7 - A strong one for the skipper. Not really called upon defensively, but could have been a bit more accurate from set pieces.
7 - Another new position for McGrandles, this time at right wing-back. Looked lively and got an assist to his name.
8 - A great game from the midfielder. Didn't do anything to steal a headline, but broke up play brilliantly, quietly orchestrating.
7 - His first league start somewhat overshadowed by that of Nombe, but continues to raise eyebrows with his mature showings in the centre. Looked comfortable and willing to try things, unflustered if they didn't always come off.
7 - Showing signs of returning to the peak of his powers with another relentless outing.
7 - Like Gilbey, is edging closer to full fitness but is getting better with every week. An excellent goal shows what Dons fans can look forward to.
8 - Rewarded with a start, repaid the manager's faith immediately. Chased everything, and caused Ryan Delaney trouble all afternoon. Playing his way into becoming a regular.
6 - Replaced a tiring Gilbey when Dons were getting into the 'lump it away' phase. Sparked a couple of counter attacks.
6 - A late change as Dons sought a see out the game. Offered little up front.
6 - Like Bowery, could not change things in attack as Dons saw the game out late.
