Dominic Poleon inspires second-half romp

Dominic Poleon grabbed his 12th goal of the season as AFC Wimbledon saw off Port Vale 4-0 for their first win in four games.

After an inspired performance from Port Vale goalkeeper Jak Alnwick kept the game goalless at half-time strikes from Poleon and Tom Elliot, early in the second half set Wimbledon on their way.

And late goals from Tyrone Barnett and Chris Robertson earned Wimbledon their first league win since downing Bury 5-1 in November, while Port Vale continue to have defensive issues, and have enjoyed just one win in their past 10.

The home side dominated for much of the first half but Alnwick made four exceptional saves to keep it goalless.

In the 53rd minute Wimbledon broke the deadlock as Sean Kelly made an excellent run down the flank and crossed for Poleon to bundle in from close range before Elliot headed home from a corner in the 58th minute.

Soon afterwards Wimbledon keeper James Shea turned Nathan Smith's effort onto the crossbar, before Barnett and Robertson netted in the final five minutes.
