AFC Wimbledon played host to MK Dons in League One on Friday evening and the whole occasion was about as bitter and trenchant as you might expect.

The two splinter clubs met for the very first time earlier this year, when AFC laid on an acrimonious “welcome” for their visitors at Kingsmeadow by refusing to acknowledge the ‘Dons’ part of Milton Keynes’ club moniker, while also refusing chairman Peter Winkelman and his fellow executives access to the corporate section of the ground.

Last night’s fixture proved to be very much a case of ‘same again’…

It was a similar story on AFC’s club website, where details on the night’s opposition were notably sparse (in that there weren’t any at all)…

One of football’s finest, most sarcastic latter day chants was also given a timely airing…

In a direct reversal of the first fixture back in March, MK Dons ended up rustling a 2-0 victory on enemy soil thanks to early goals from Ryan Seager and Gboly Ariyibi.

They then left the Kingsmeadow pitch to a guard of honour and an rousing standing ovation from the appreciative home supporters.

Sort of, anyway.
