AFC Wimbledon maintain unbeaten away run

AFC Wimbledon stretched their unbeaten away run to eight games with a 0-0 draw at Oldham.

The Dons have not lost on their travels since the opening day of the campaign, while Oldham have still managed only one home league win all season.

Both sides created chances in an even first half, with Wimbledon keeper James Shea doing well to deny Billy McKay at his near post.

Wimbledon should have scored on 31 minutes, but Jake Reeves was kept out by Connor Ripley's excellent save after breaking clear inside the box.

Oldham threatened again when Ryan McLaughlin crossed to Lee Erwin, whose downward header was beaten out by Shea.

In the 61st minute, Dons midfielder Dean Parrett fizzed a long-range free-kick inches wide of the post.

Wimbledon's Tom Elliott glanced a header over the top before Shea parried a 25-yard blast by Ollie Banks.

Oldham went desperately close to an 89th-minute winner, but Shea touched a Charles Dunne header on to the crossbar before Freddie Ladapo's follow-up also hit the woodwork.
