Dons boss Ardley takes a point off Morecambe, but plays down promotion chances
AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley admitted his team were not likely to challenge for promotion from League Two - but they are close.
Michael Smith's sixth goal of the season ensured the Dons returned from Morecambe on Saturday with a point from a 1-1 draw.
Morecambe, previously unbeaten in eight games, could have gone top of the table had they beaten Ardley's men.
However, despite taking an early lead through Kevin Ellison's eighth minute strike, Smith's second half intervention foiled the Shrimps' table-topping hopes.
Ardley said: "It was a good level of performance. We limited them to few chances and, after going a goal down, we fought back well and we could have even nicked one late on.
"We are not a top-four or possibly top-six side but we are going to be there or thereabouts. It's a big improvement on where we were last season."
