The Dons extend the unbeaten run to four games in a fiesty Bucks Derby with the worst and most unprofessional performance from officials we have witnessed in quite a long time.
Mark Jackson made one change from the win over Morecambe last time out, Henry Lawrence dropping to the bench making way for Anthony Stewart to make his Dons debut at a club he’d played for previously.
The Dons started brightly and in the opening few moments put pressure on the Wycombe goal forcing the first corner.
On nine minutes that man McEachran did it again starting a crisp passing move involving five players first Watson, Grant, Leko to Grant and Harvie finished it off. 1-0 Dons 9 mins.
The home side were finding the away side hard to handle up to the goal, but they soon started to beat us to the ball, getting in front of our players and finding players in space.
On twenty-two minutes a corner was hit high and long to the far post as we’ve seem multiple times and the ball ended up in our net. 1-1 22 mins.
The home side seized control and the Dons were on the back foot without any control of the game, they were unable to get near the ball far too often and kept giving away possession too easily when they did get it.
Half time arrived with the Dons probably the most grateful to hear it with the scores level.
The start of the second half saw the home side continue to control the balance of power and posed more of a threat to score than the Dons and on fifty-five minutes ex MK winger David Wheeler scored his and Wycombes second as the ball fell nicely to him a couple of yards out. 2-1 Wycombe.
It wasn’t looking good at this point. The Dons couldn’t get going. Poor passing and the wrong choice of pass was hampering progress as effort and application was being wasted when opportunity presented itself.
The Dons pressed forward and the ball was with Grant, his effort was blocked Leko took over his quick feet created him enough room to stab the ball into the far corner through a crowded area. 2-2 Seventy minutes. Celebrations from behind the goal were amazing. A massive outpouring of limbs, noise and then a pyro engulfed the Dons fan.
The home side then set their sights on a winner in the last few minutes, the Dons defence dug deep. High balls had rained in all afternoon and four clearances in quick succession from Stewart suggested the Dons could hold out.
The Dons had the balance of play in added time but in the end it finished all square. Which seems a reasonable end and one many thought would be the result before the game.
The performance of the officials was awful. The Linesman by the dugout failed to call the ball out on three occasions. The fourth official failed to tell us how much added time there would be but the referee was just simply abysmal. So many decisions guessed. Several clear fouls and handballs not given. He. Was. Shocking.
Anyway the points total increases with seven to go. See you against Portsmouth where hopefully we’ll make Good Friday a Great Friday.
