AFC Wimbledon 3-1 York City

AFC Wimbledon came from behind to book a place in the FA Cup second round thanks to a late brace from Matt Tubbs.

York took a fifth-minute lead through Wes Fletcher's glorious 30-yard volley and held the Dons until the break.

Jack Smith found the equaliser with a well-directed drive after an Adebayo Akinfenwa knockdown, before striker Tubbs sprung into life to win the game.

Akinfenwa teed up Tubbs for his first and Tubbs made it 3-1 after York keeper Michael Ingham came up for a corner.

Wimbledon, who had drawn 1-1 at York in the original tie, will travel to Wycombe Wanderers in round two.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC London 94.9:

"Any win in the FA Cup is a great win.

"In the first half we weren't aggressive enough in the way we played and I think a few of them were shocked when they came in.

"At half-time I told them a few home truths and that they had 15 minutes to liven up or I was changing the shape and bringing on some subs.

"We'd love to get into the third round. After what Wycombe did to us there in the league, we have a score to settle."

York City manager Russ Wilcox told BBC Radio York:

"I'm very disappointed. Chance-wise in the game, we created the most chances.

"But you could see the pressure, We couldn't deal with the pressure, we didn't do the basics right again in both boxes. I'm very frustrated.

"I know money is very tight, but we can't keep ticking along with the same personnel. We need to add some quality to the group if we can.

"It's a conversation I'll be having."
