Last Updated: 19/10/19 8:52pm
Defender Terrell Thomas scored a dramatic late winner as AFC Wimbledon beat Portsmouth 1-0 to claim a second successive victory.
Thomas headed in from a corner three minutes into added time to score his first Dons goal and pile more pressure on Pompey manager Kenny Jackett.
The visitors had the better of the first half and John Marquis should have opened the scoring in the 18th minute.
Marcus Harness' pass carved open the Wimbledon defence, leaving Marquis one-on-one with goalkeeper Nathan Trott, but the striker pulled his shot wide.
Christian Burgess was inches away from breaking the deadlock nine minutes later when he headed against the crossbar from Lee Brown's cross, while Tom Naylor also spurned a free header as the teams went in goalless at half-time.
Pompey goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray pulled off a good save to keep out Marcus Forss' free-kick six minutes after the restart.
The goal finally arrived in at the death as Thomas directed his header beyond MacGillivray for all three points.
