Wimbledon Pulls out a late draw over League One Leader’s Luton Town
DAMN that was a lot to handle.
Last time I said it was unlikely to get a draw but somehow, someway, the Dons pulled it off. Let’s talk about the only reason Wimbledon could stay in this game; It’s because of Aaron Ramsdale. The man made 8 saves (which is more saves than Wimbledon had shots), including 2 that came during a one on one with Kazenga LuaLua (Top 5 greatest names in soccer). Ramsdale’s effort throughout the game allowed the Dons to draw the game in the 93rd minute with a header from Steve Seddon.
It’s one point but it is so much more than that. The team’s must be brimming with confidence after sticking with the League’s top ranked club, hopefully giving the Dons the determination to finish the season strong. Additionally, this one point is huge, it could be crucial to the Dons’ attempt to stay up in League One. With the draw Wimbledon moves into 21st place with 46 points and one point out of safety. Both Plymouth Argyle and Southend United are above them with 47 points. Wimbledon currently has the worst goal differential out of the three teams but if they can get enough goals out of their last match against lowly Bradford city, the dons could improve their goal differential to surpass Plymouth Argyle in the event of a tie.
Let’s look quickly into the franchise currently playing out of Milton Keyens. In almost perfect symmetry, Milton Keynes are sitting 4th place in League Two, one point out of assumed promotion. It’s hard to doubt there are Sports Gods when the seasons have endings as poetic endings as this.
The real Dons have their own fate in their hands. If they can win both of their final games, at home against Wycombe (18th place) and at Bradford City (Last place) the Dons will most likely be safe. So cross your fingers, toes, arms, and legs and hope, that if there are Sports Gods, they believe in justice for a city that had its team taken.
