AFC Wimbledon 2-3 Stevenage

A debut goal from Cameron Lancaster helped earn Stevenage victory over AFC Wimbledon in League Two.

Matt Tubbs slid Wimbledon ahead from eight yards but Stevenage levelled when Simon Walton's free-kick was tipped on to the bar and Dean Wells nodded in.

Lancaster put Boro ahead in bizarre fashion when his deep cross evaded everyone and found the back of the net.

Stevenage made it three when Charlie Lee headed in, before Adebayo Azeez netted a consolation goal for the Dons.

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley told BBC London 94.9:

"We're all hurt by it, you want to win your home games, but we didn't do enough today and it's frustrating."

"First half, I felt that we weren't playing well enough, but I thought that we were quite open in the midfield areas, we had two wingers on the pitch.

"At half-time I told the boys I wanted to go for it, maybe I changed it too early, maybe I went for the win too early, and we got disjointed because of it."

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"People say to me could this be the best Stevenage team ever? It could be the best team ever.

"There were some really good passages of play at the start of the first half."

On Cameron Lancaster's goal: "It was a well delivered ball towards the back post that happened to go in."
