ABobby Zamora inspired Brighton side dumped the Dons out of the Worthington Cup at the first hurdle after a disappointing night on the south coast. Ian Feuer made his debut between the posts at the three sided Withdean stadium. After being booked for diving while claiming a penalty in the first half, the £3 million rated striker struck twice after the break to give his side victory following Mark William's 52nd minute opener for Wimbledon.

"We controlled the game in midfield and did alright at both ends of the pitch," a clearly unhappy Burton commented. "But in the striking positions and at left back we were poor. We did not defend well enough when we had to"
