Wimbledon captain Paul Robinson steals late point against Coventry

AFC Wimbledon captain Paul Robinson led by example as his injury-time goal earned his side a 1-1 draw with bottom club Coventry.

After a goalless first half Coventry looked to be heading to a first win in 15 league matches thanks to Jodi Jones' 71st-minute strike.

But in the third minute of injury time, Robinson pounced on a loose ball in the box to dash the visitors' hopes and ensure Wimbledon remain unbeaten at home in seven league games.

The first half was full of blood and thunder and both sides were passionate with the ball which was mostly airborn for the majority of the time.

On a difficult Kingsmeadow pitch the game plan for both sides was get it forward and pump balls into the box.

It brought enough chances for both teams to have a goal each, with Coventry's George Thomas and the Dons' Tom Soares guilty of missing opportunities.

But substitute Jones showed them how it was done with 20 minutes left with a fine finish.

However, after good work from Andy Barchan down the left, Robinson fired home the cutback from the touchline to send Kingsmeadow into raptures.
