AFC Wimbledon battled to gain their first point of the season against Eastbourne Town when the sides battled out a goalless draw.
The two teams had played each other the previous week, when Eastbourne won their home meeting in the Premier Division of the London & South East League. Having played each other so recently, the match took on a familiar pattern as the match played out in a similar vein to the previous week's encounter, end-to-end with few chances.
Eastbourne were dealt a blow as defender Emma Parslow had to come off to be replaced by Olivia Fielder after 26 minutes, Parslow sustaining a suspected broken thumb after a she fell on it.
Damaris Ott pulled off a dramatic save as Eastbourne came closest to scoring in the first half, with a ball dropping just below the bar being pushed over.
The second period continued in the same vein with both teams trying to gain the upper hand. Wimbledon continued to press and were unlucky with a free kick just going wide from captain Louise Cooper and Coralie Kouassi missing a couple of chances after going round Eastbourne's keeper and shooting wide.
Shaz Blomeley missed the best opportunity from either team as she shot over the bar when faced with an open goal. The match continued to ebb and flow but neither team was able to break through.
