The Dons took the lead midway through the first half through Michael Smith before the striker netted his second of the game with a simple finish to take all three points back to the capital.

AFC Wimbledon now sit third in the League Two table after six matches and Ardley is hoping his side can remain consistent in the coming weeks after producing an assured team performance.

"It was a classic away victory," he said. "We talked to the players during the week and we knew this wasn't going to be a free-flowing game of football so we knew we had to do the ugly side first.

"We came here and put in a solid team performance and I'm not going to dress it up as anything other than that.

"We limited them to one chance at the end but other than that I couldn't see them scoring. The boys put their shift in, I thought we lacked a bit of tempo and energy in the first half but second half we upped that and I thought we were comfortable.

"It's nice to look at the table at present but it's just about keeping that consistency and getting the points. I'm very pleased at the moment, last week was a very good performance and this week we've produced a solid away performance."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
