Blues In The News: AFC Wimbledon

27 September 2017

Take a look at what the media had to say about our 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon last night...

Southend Echo

JASON Demetriou’s second goal in three games handed Southend United a narrow and nervy 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon at Roots Hall tonight.

The Shrimpers right-back - who netted just once last season - fired home a deflected effort on the hour mark.

And some dogged defending at the other end of the pitch meant the Cyprus international’s strike was enough to secure back to back wins for Blues.

Jason Demetriou's deflected second-half strike handed Southend a 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon.

The right-back's cross was turned into his own net by Dons goalkeeper George Long as the Shrimpers recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Despite the final scoreline, the Dons had the better of the first half with Will Nightingale heading inches wide and Anthony Wordsworth firing against his own left post.

AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon suffered a second successive defeat tonight, but the result at Roots Hall was a harsh one for Neal Ardley's men.

The Dons fashioned the better chances at Southend, but failed to take them, and a deflected cross from Jason Demetriou was enough to secure a 1-0 win for the hosts. Particularly in the first-half, Wimbledon played well, but again the cutting edge was missing.

Neal Ardley made three changes to the side that started against Milton Keynes with one of those involving a return to first-team match action for Tom Soares, who replaced Anthony Hartigan in midfield. Will Nightingale was preferred to Paul Robinson at centre-back and Cody McDonald filled the void up front with Kwesi Appiah injured.
