Bristol Rovers 2-0 AFC Wimbledon

Whenever a team is in a poor run of form winning is the most important thing that needs to be talked about.

But the situation Rovers have been in front of goal had been quite frankly dire.

Five games without a goal has now ended for Rovers as they managed to score twice during the win against AFC Wimbledon and ease the fans arrears.

Ed Upson’s first of the season and a Will Nightingale own goal helped the Gas pick up just a third league win of the season.

The early stages of the game saw AFC Wimbledon start the brighter with James Hanson going close on a number of occasions as it looked like Rovers were in for an unneeded rough ride.

The opening goal of the game was one of a bit of fortune.

A corner which hit the crossbar then bounced off Upson and it went in the back of the net and that saw the home side score for just under a staggering 500 minutes.

Once the lead was Rovers’s they never looked like losing the lead and a massive second goal was added.

A ball in from left-back Michael Kelly saw the cross be put in his own net by the Wimbledon centre-back Will Nightingale.

The win moved Rovers out of the drop zone and dropped Wimbledon into the bottom four as a result.
