PICTURE GALLERY: AFC Wimbledon downed by Oxford United
AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley admitted that the buck stops with him after Oxford United condemned the Dons to a sixth League Two match with a win.
Goals from James Constable and Deane Smalley sealed a 2-0 win for the visitors, lifting them to the top of the table in the process.
The Dons now sit 15th in the table, having picked up just two points from the last 18.
Ardley said: "The boys have given a lot of energy at the end of a tough week and have put everything out there and if we stuck a half chance away we could have kicked on.
"I won't moan about the effort and energy and the buck stops with me and we will have a meeting on Tuesday and get some positivity back in the camp."
He added: "We lacked quality at times but that comes from confidence being drained at times, at one end they were a constant menace and at the other they were solid, we need to pick ourselves up and become a better team."
