AFC Wimbledon are deducted three points by the Football League for fielding an ineligible player.

AFC Wimbledon have been deducted three points by the Football League for fielding an ineligible player.

The League Two club were charged last week for Jake Nicholson's appearance on March 22 in a league game against Cheltenham Town.

The former Tottenham Hotspur trainee, 21, made his one and only appearance for Wimbledon that day, scoring their second goal in a 4-3 victory.

It was announced this afternoon that Wimbledon would be deducted three points, fined a fee of £5,000 that is suspended until the end of the 2014-15 season and be forced to pay the costs of the hearing.

A three-point deduction sees the club drop from 14th to 18th, but they remain safe from relegation with just one game of the season left.
