The League Managers Association five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that this week the newly sponsored and longstanding LG Performance of the Week Award should go to AFC Wimbledon following their excellent 1-0 away win against Luton Town in Sky Bet League Two on 16 August 2014.

The experienced panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 professional matches in English football.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley will receive a new specially commissioned trophy made by world renowned silversmiths and LMA Partner, Thomas Lyte of London, in a presentation to commemorate the award.

Wimbledon won the second award of the season with a fine away victory at newly promoted Luton.

Matt Tubbs' goal just before half-time was enough to secure victory for the visitors which they followed up with another notable win at Southend United in the mid-week fixtures.

Speaking after the Southend match, Ardley was delighted with his side’s fine week:

"We had to work really hard to get this latest one because they're a very, very good team and they threw an awful lot at us.

"We were certainly made to work a lot harder than we were at Luton at the weekend and I firmly believe Southend will go on to get promotion or finish in the top three.

"With that in mind I'm delighted to have got the win and I could run through the whole team and praise them for how well they've played."
