AFC Wimbledon claimed a first win in eight league games with a comfortable 3-0 success at Wycombe.

Debutant Charlie Wyke and Sammy Moore put the visitors 2-0 up before Wanderers had Anthony Stewart sent off for bringing down Kevin Saint-Luce in the box.

Jack Midson scored from the resulting penalty although Wimbledon also ended with 10 men as Jim Fenlon was dismissed.

Ryan Bowman and a brace from Wes Fletcher put the Minstermen in control, with Rhys Murphy getting a consolation for the visitors.

The only other game to go ahead amidst the stormy weather battering the country was Mansfield's 1-0 win at Exeter, with Lee Stevenson scoring the winner just before the interval.
