February 28, 2001 14:05: Wimbledon 5 QPR 0

"I don't know about the film 'A Bridge too Far', for me it's probably a game too far." So said Gerry Francis after he had seen his team torn apart on Saturday.

Against a team who had played extra time in a losing FA Cup tie earlier in the week Rangers, who had won their last two league games, reverted to type.

Physically and tactically, Rangers were no match for the rampant Dons. With only Wardley showing any sort of commitment in the middle of the field the Rs played like condemned men.

Mark Williams, Wimbledon's Northern Ireland centre half, atoned for the penalty miss that had cost the Dons their cup tie against Wycombe.

He was the architect of their most impressive win of the season with two goals.

Wimbledon were far superior to a lethargic Rangers squad that looked and played like a team in crisis.

The Dons dominated from the start but could not score until the 40th minute. Then a well directed Neal Ardley free-kick from 40 yards was steered into the net at the far post by Williams.

Rangers had chances of their own, Wardley had a shot saved and both Kiwomya and Crouch missed easy headers from corners.

Five minutes into the second half Patrick Agyemang laid on the second goal with a cross to the far post, which veteran Marcus Gayle powered in from close range.

On 65 minutes Agyemang was again instrumental with a powerful shot that was blocked by keeper Miklosko only for Jason Euell to push in the loose ball for number three.

In the 77th minute Williams grabbed his second when he forced in an Ardley corner over the line in a crowded goalmouth and then after 79 minutes Euell fired in his second, following a lively run by Gareth Ainsworth

Last word to the Rangers departing manager Francis: "We caved in like a pack of cards."
