Clark strikes to end Accrington’s losing run against AFC Wimbledon
Accrington ended a run of three defeats as Jordan Clark’s ninth goal of the season earned them a 1-1 draw against fellow strugglers AFC Wimbledon.
Looking to move out of the bottom four for the first time since October, Joe Pigott’s 14th goal of the season put the Dons ahead on 21 minutes.
Unmarked in the box, Pigott fired into the bottom corner after the visitors’ attempts to clear Steve Seddon’s cross fell straight to him.
Against the run of play, Stanley were gifted an equaliser before the break, as Clark intercepted Paul Kalambayi’s back-pass and slid the ball past Aaron Ramsdale.
Stanley wasted a golden chance to take the lead on 41 minutes after referee Neil Hair controversially adjudged that Dons midfielder Scott Wagstaff had fouled Paul Smyth in the box.
Leading scorer Billy Kee squandered the opportunity from 12 yards as he side-footed wide.
Stanley goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov made excellent saves to deny Toby Sibbick and Kalambayi, while substitute Sam Finley almost won it for the visitors with a 25-yard strike that narrowly went over.
