Jason Demetriou’s deflected second-half strike handed Southend a 1-0 win against AFC Wimbledon.The right-back’s cross was turned into his own net by Dons goalkeeper George Long as the Shrimpers recorded back-to-back wins for the first time this season.Despite the final scoreline, the Dons had the better of the first half with Will Nightingale heading inches wide and Anthony Wordsworth firing against his own left post.

Southend goalkeeper Mark Oxley then did well to deny George Francomb from long range before the home side improved at the start of the second half.As a result, Nile Ranger saw a 20-yard shot saved by Long, who then also denied Ryan Leonard.But, with 60 minutes on the clock, the Shrimpers bagged the only goal of the game with Demetriou collecting a pass from Michael Timlin before firing home.Dons’ Dean Parrett saw an immediate effort ruled out for handball before the Shrimpers’ Josh Wright also had an effort disallowed for offside.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsSouthend1Oxley24DemetriouBooked at 73mins5Ferdinand27Kyprianou8Timlin44Wright18Leonard4WordsworthSubstituted forWhiteat 80’minutes11McLaughlinSubstituted forMcGlashanat 70’minutes10CoxSubstituted forRobinsonat 55’minutes50RangerSubstitutes2Hendrie9Fortuné13Bishop16Yearwood17McGlashan31Robinson48WhiteWimbledon1Long2Fuller4Oshilaja5Nightingale7Francomb18ParrettSubstituted forForresterat 67’minutes14Trotter17BarchamSubstituted forCharlesat 81’minutes19SoaresSubstituted forAbdouat 76’minutes10McDonaldBooked at 63mins33TaylorSubstitutes6Robinson8Abdou11Forrester21Kaja24McDonnell26Hartigan32CharlesReferee:Graham HorwoodAttendance:5,881Match StatsHome TeamSouthendAway TeamWimbledonPossessionHome47%Away53%ShotsHome14Away14Shots on TargetHome6Away2CornersHome4Away7FoulsHome11Away16Live TextPosted at Match ends, Southend United 1, AFC Wimbledon 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Southend United 1, AFC Wimbledon 0.Posted at 90’+5′ Attempt missed.
