Dons have not won in the league since December 2

League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon have parted company with manager Glyn Hodges following their 2-0 home defeat to Milton Keynes Dons.

Wimbledon have not won any of their last 11 league games, a run that dates all the way back to December 2. They are 21st in Sky Bet League One, one point and one place below the Cobblers having played two games more.

Hodges' final game in charge saw them beaten 2-0 by rivals MK at Plough Lane on Saturday. Assistant manager Nick Daws has also left the club.

Wimbledon CEO Joe Palmer said: “It is with a genuinely heavy heart that I have to announce that we have parted company with Glyn.

“After a strong start to the season when the team was arguably over-performing, the recent run of results left us in a difficult position. We need to do everything to ensure our survival in League One and after a brief chat Glyn and I have agreed that a parting of the ways today is in the best interests of Wimbledon.

"I think it says it all about the man and his love for the club that we were able to come to this decision together. I want to place on record my thanks to Glyn and Nick for their efforts in my time here, and I wish them both every success in the future.

"Glyn’s service to Wimbledon goes back a long way and he leaves the club today with our thanks for all he has done for us over the years, as player, coach and manager.”
