Veteran striker Gareth Taylor secured Wrexham a controversial 1-0 win over Blue Square Premier high-fliers AFC Wimbledon at the Racecourse Ground.In their first game in seven weeks, Dean Saunders' men finally got some luck both with the weather and their first-half winning goal. [LNB]Taylor's bizarre 10th strike of the season was a hopeful lob into the box. [LNB]But Dons keeper Seb Brown could only help the ball over the line under the challenge of Wrexham's Lamine Sakho. [LNB]And the resulting complaints from the Wimbledon players fell on deaf ears. [LNB][LNB]Wrexham manager Dean Saunders said: "I am delighted as we deserved to win as we've not played for a long time but it was a great, battling performance and our 15th clean sheet. [LNB]"We played some good football at times, we defended well and snuffed out any danger. [LNB]"Regarding the goal, the ball went into the box and the reason the referee has given it because the goalkeeper has carried the ball over the line and the linesman has the best view in the stadium - and I'm not complaining."
