AFC Wimbledon 3-0 Ebbsfleet Utd

Every Dons fan would have had this fixture down as a banker home win beforehand, and so it proved, as the forward triumvirate of Main, Moore and Kedwell proved too hot to handle for the Ebbsfleet defence.

For once, the Dons kicked off in a high gear, with breathtaking passing on display throughout the team. Incredibly, despite possession and chances, it took almost until half time for the scoring to be opened, after a string of good saves by Cronin in the Ebbsfleet goal, and two defensive headers on the goal line from when Cronin was beaten.

The improving Wellard threaded a neat ball to Conroy, whose cross was finished off by Moore.

Instead of building on the advantage, the Dons defensive personnel got sloppy after half time and contrived to offer many chances for Ebbsfleet to get back in the game, all of which were luckily spurned by poor finishers.

Eventually superiority was restored and likewise the silky passing moves, and Kedwell increased his goal tally by collecting a Wellard pass and volleying home from twenty yards past Cronin. The Dons leading scorer went off along with Main to give Montague and Cumbers some match time, but it was Moore who got the thir and final goal with a shot on the turn.

Moore could have had a hattrick and Montague also came close, but nobody would quibble at a 3-0 scoreline, given recent home form, and this could just be the catalyst that reignites the Dons faltering season.
