Plymouth vs AFC Wimbledon by Luke
It seems that Plymouth is fully back now to winning ways as the team comes from third consecutive victory in League One, most importantly it was their second consecutive victory away from home against Shrewsbury with a 1:2 result as the side now remained undefeated in their last six matches away from home.
However, the clash didn't start as expected for them, since the players of Shrewsbury took the lead in sixth minute via Morris, but the visitors managed to reply in 27th via Ness. A bit against the flow, they managed to completely revert the scoreline in 62nd minute with a goal from Vyner, while the hosts remained being better till the end and trying desperately but the change never came.
It was surely unexpected victory for Plymouth, as the side won against one of the hottest candidates for the title as they have now improved the chances in the play-off race sitting currently at tenth position with five points less than play-off placed Bradford and remained being in a must win situation.
Home side is set to miss first goalkeeper and tea captain Luke McCormick (9/0), but also defenders Ryan Edwards (25/3) and Jordan Bentley who anyway didn't play so far.
AFC Wimbledon is obviously in a poor situation now, as they firstly suffered defeats away to Rotherham which was expected, but then also on the road against Bury one of the weakest sides in the League, however also didn't manage to get the positive outcome in front of own fans against Northampton last time out previous Saturday afternoon.
Their guests took the lead via penalty kick in eight minute taken by Grimes and it wasn't easy for them to get back straight into the match, as the side leveled up the result in 47th minute via Oshilaja, but failed to be more threatening in the next phase and paid the price for it, with goals from Crooks and Powell in 62nd and 72nd minute.
There's no doubt that this was huge setback for them since it's a defeat against also relegation worried side, as the team now stands at 20th position with just a point more than relegating placed Oldham.
Visitors are set to miss defender Will Nightingale (13/0) and forward Kwesi Appiah (10/2).
- AFC Wimbledon have won three out of last four mutual matches.
Plymouth does well in recent months, not only in last three matches, but the side remains under pressure in order to get into the promotional race. AFC Wimbledon is far away from their standards overall, but also three consecutive defeats aren't helping them at all.
