AFC Wimbledon enjoy first victory over arch-rivals MK Dons

Jake Reeves' first goal of the season set AFC Wimbledon on their way to a 2-0 victory as MK Dons visited Kingsmeadow for the first time.

After a tense first half, Reeves struck just after the hour mark before Lyle Taylor added a quick-fire second to record AFC Wimbledon's first-ever league victory over their arch-rivals.

The hosts impressed in the first half but had James Shea to thank on the half hour as he produced a brilliant save to tip away Harvey Barnes' curling effort from the left with Robbie Muirhead lurking.

Neal Ardley's side then made the breakthrough on the hour with midfielder Reeves finding the net from close range as Andy Barcham headed Taylor's deep cross into his path.

Taylor gave his side a two-goal cushion six minutes later as he latched onto a quick throw from the right before arrowing an unstoppable drive beyond David Martin.

The visitors almost reduced the deficit moments later but Shea once again produced a smart reflex save to stop Kieran Agard's effort from creeping in at his near post.
