A place in the FA Cup third round was achieved for the first time in AFC Wimbledon’s history on Sunday afternoon when we saw off league 2 rivals Wycombe Wanderers.

Wycombe, top of the league 2 table, were undone by a second half goal as we secured a 1-0 win at Adams Park.

Not even 30-seconds had been played when the first great chance came our way, an effort that you would back Matt Tubbs to score nine times out of ten. Barry Fuller’s cross was nodded back to Tubbs but his header went just wide.

We had ‘keeper James Shea to thank though for making sure we went into half time with the scores level at nil-nil as he saved an effort, which also took a deflection, from Max Kretzschmar.

The deadlock was broken 10-minutes into the second half when George Francomb’s surge forward with him pulling the ball back for Sean Rigg (56) who made no mistake to give us the lead.

Shea again produced the goods when he saved Sam Wood’s effort from distance with a one-nil win enough to see us into the third round, which will take place tonight.
