AFC WIMBLEDON 0
BY LAURENCE LOWNE AT HOME PARK
The telling point for both these teams is a lack of goals scored. Just nine by each in 12 League One matches.
It is a challenge for Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley and his opposite number Derek Adams to solve over the coming weeks and months. Failure to do so, will see a season of struggle.
Ardley made just the one change from the midweek defeat at home to Bradford City with Andy Barcham restored to the starting 11 and Mitch Pinnock taking his place on the bench.
Plymouth had not won a league game this season going into Saturday’s fixture and that could have continued to be the case if Jake Jervis had dispatched a shot from a yard out, rather than hitting keeper Matt Macey to put the Dons ahead with less than 20 minutes remaining.
Jervis, on loan from Luton Town, was given a warm welcome by Argyle and it was great to hear the respect after 31 goals in 127 outings for the Devon club.
At the end of the match, he wandered over to family and friends to have a conversation or two and the ball boys lined up to give him a line of high fives as he left the pitch with applause ringing out around the stadium.
It was a lovely touch. But maybe not one that would have happened if he had put his old paymasters to the sword.
