Last updated : 26 December 2015
AFC Wimbledon hold Bristol Rovers to goalless drawAFC Wimbledon survived 86 minutes with 10 men as they held in-form Bristol Rovers to a 0-0 draw.Paul Robinson saw red in the early stages, and although Rovers failed to break down their hosts, their unbeaten run now stands at five games while the Dons are winless in eight.The hosts were reduced to 10 men after just four minutes when skipper Robinson was sent off for a professional foul

A smart flick-on by Matty Taylor put Ellis Harrison through on goal and while Robinson's sliding challenge 30 yards out appeared to take the ball, referee Keith Hill took a different view

Despite Wimbledon's numerical disadvantage, Adebayo Akinfenwa headed narrowly wide on 23 minutes although Billy Bodin's 25-yard effort almost gave Rovers the lead on half-time.After the break, the Pirates set up to counter attack, which they almost did successfully 20 minutes from time

Taylor played in Daniel Leadbitter but Barry Fuller made a last-ditch challenge before Dons' Callum Kennedy headed a late chance wide
