Half-Time Report: Adebayo Akinfenwa draws AFC Wimbledon level against Liverpool

Adebayo Akinfenwa cancels out Steven Gerrard's goal as Liverpool and AFC Wimbledon head into the break level at 1-1 in their FA Cup fourth-round tie.

AFC Wimbledon have come from behind to take a 1-1 draw into the break of their FA Cup tie against Liverpool, thanks to Adebayo Akinfenwa's strike.

Sean Rigg threatened early on for the hosts when he latched on to a flick down the left, before drilling a strike across goal and just wide of the far post.

However, it was Liverpool who took the lead just moments later, as Steven Gerrard arrived to meet Javier Manquillo's cross and powered a header into the corner.

Lazar Markovic was close to grabbing a second for the Reds when he burst into the box and fired a strike just past the top corner.

Wimbledon eventually grew into the game and Simon Mignolet had to be alert to tip Rigg's powerful drive over the bar, before Jake Goodman headed the resulting corner behind.

The hosts came close again as Liverpool failed to deal with a ball over the top, allowing Matt Tubbs time to turn and fire a shot inches wide of the post.

In the 36th minute the Dons finally made the breakthrough, as Akinfenwa poked home from inside the six-yard box after Mamadou Sakho had headed the ball onto his own bar.
