Bristol Rovers come from behind to win at AFC Wimbledon

Bristol Rovers came from behind to secure a 3-1 win at winless AFC Wimbledon.

Goals from Abu Ogogo, Jonson Clarke-Harris and Tony Craig did the damage for the visitors at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

Marcus Forss’ third goal in four games put the Dons on course for their first win of the season as he opened the scoring on 20 minutes.

But Ogogo levelled for the visitors nine minutes later with a smart finish and the game turned in the second half as the hosts were reduced to 10 men.

Forss was sent off for a second yellow card for a foul on Clarke-Harris after 66 minutes, having earlier been booked for celebrating excessively after scoring.

Clarke-Harris took full advantage to fire Rovers into the lead on 75 minutes. It was the on-song striker’s seventh goal of the campaign and also his sixth goal in seven league games.

Stand-in skipper Craig put the game to bed with a close-range header in the 87th minute to ensure Wimbledon’s wait for a first league win of the season goes on.
