Jack Midson's goal deep into injury time sealed a remarkable comeback for AFC Wimbledon against Cheltenham.

Troy Brown's header and Jermaine McGlashan's close-range finish put Cheltenham 2-0 ahead.

The hosts scored three times in three minutes, Midson setting up the first for Danny Hylton, who then provided the assist for Jake Nicholson's equaliser.

Hylton rounded the keeper for 3-2, only for Cheltenham's Jason Taylor to level, before Midson won it from close range.

Post-match: AFC Wimbledon boss Ardley

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley told BBC Radio London 94.9:

"When we went 2-0 down, you start to fear the worse.

"The players, they need me. I'm going to try and stay positive for them.

"I'm a nightmare, I never switch off. I don't stop thinking about my job - we've got a tough week but its been a good start to it."

Mark Yates: Cheltenham Town manager on defeat at AFC Wimbledon

Cheltenham Town manager Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"That was probably our best performance of the season, bar the three goals in three minutes. I'm fuming, but it probably sums up our season."

"It's really frustrating, and it's hard to understand to be honest, but we've gifted them goals.

"At 3-3 you'd take a point, but to concede again, just sums us up. All their goals were self inflicted and I'm a bit stuck for words."
