Sammy Moore's 88th-minute winner gave AFC Wimbledon victory over Macclesfield.

The Dons controlled much of the game but fell behind just after the break when Shaun Brisley teed up Dwayne Mattis to slot home.

However, the hosts drew level almost immediately when Billy Knott's superb long-range effort found the net.

But the Dons grabbed all three points late on when Moore fired home after he was given too much space in the box.
