Lyle Taylor’s strike was enough to send AFC Wimbledon through to the second round of the FA Cup as they edged past Lincoln 1-0.The striker put his side ahead in the seventh minute after capitalising on some poor defending, and the Dons survived a second-half onslaught from last season’s FA Cup surprise package.The Imps, who reached the quarter-finals as a non-league club last time, could not convert a number of good second-half chances.

Wimbledon took the lead early on after Taylor latched on to a loose back pass from Rob Dickie to slot home his fifth goal of the season.Lincoln were very much improved in the second half and began to threaten Wimbledon’s well-organised defence, looking particularly dangerous from corners with Luke Waterfall almost nipping in.The visitors had a golden chance to equalise in the 51st minute but Billy Knott failed to capitalise on a heavy touch by George Long in the Wimbledon goal.Matt Rhead played in Nathan Arnold during the closing minutes but Long dived in to deny him as the Dons held out.Match report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsWimbledon1Long2Fuller4Oshilaja32Charles23Kennedy11Forrester8AbdouSubstituted forRobinsonat 85’minutes19Soares10McDonald33TaylorSubstituted forMeadesat 29’minutes17BarchamSubstitutes3Meades6Robinson20Sibbick21Kaja24McDonnell26Hartigan28EganLincoln City21Vickers2Long15Dickie5Waterfall23Eardley16Bostwick11KnottSubstituted forGinnellyat 85’minutes30Woodyard10Green8PalmerSubstituted forRheadat 68’minutes28ArnoldSubstituted forWhitehouseat 83’minutesSubstitutes1Farman4Whitehouse7Ginnelly9Rhead12Chapman32Stewart33HortonReferee:Andy WoolmerAttendance:3,394Match StatsHome TeamWimbledonAway TeamLincoln CityPossessionHome49%Away51%ShotsHome9Away8Shots on TargetHome3Away3CornersHome2Away7FoulsHome7Away8Live TextPosted at Match ends, AFC Wimbledon 1, Lincoln City 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+4′ Second Half ends, AFC Wimbledon 1, Lincoln City 0.Posted at 90′ Corner, Lincoln City.
