Nathan Trott Makes Key Save In Wimbledon Win

January 20, 2020 | 0 Comments

Bermudian goalkeeper Nathan Trott made a “fingertip save” to help AFC Wimbledon claim a 1-0 victory against Peterborough.

The club’s match report said, “Nesta Guinness-Walker popped up on the right side and delivered a ball in that picked out Pigott, who struck a clinical low drive to finally beat Pym.

“It was a lead that Wimbledon had certainly warranted on the balance of chances created. However, the goal produced a stirring response from the visitors and they almost equalised seconds later. Trott was required to make a fingertip save to stop Toney’s looping header.

“Shortly afterwards, Wimbledon just about survived an equaliser in a goalmouth incident that required Luke O’Neill to receive treatment. Trott just about won a race to reach the ball first with Toney, but his clearance rebounded off the Peterborough striker and towards goal. However, a combination of a post and O’Neill, stopped the ball from crossing the line and Toney shot wide from close-range. It was all Peterborough after this as Wimbledon’s defending became a bit last-ditch.

“A mixture of good defending and profligacy in front of goal from the visitors kept the score at 1-0. Szmodics had two great chances, but he shot wide with both and Trott did well to stop a shot by Toney from finding the net.”
