Match ends, AFC Wimbledon 2, Gillingham 4.
Tom Eaves netted his 19th League One goal of the season as Gillingham came from behind to record an impressive victory at relegation-threatened AFC Wimbledon.
The Dons looked like heading for a third successive home win after Scott Wagstaff danced down the right and squared the ball for Michael Folivi to side-foot high past Tomas Holy from 15 yards in the 22nd minute.
Gills' equaliser in the 40th minute came somewhat against the run of play, when Leonardo da Silva Lopes slipped in Brandon Hanlan and the Charlton youth product shifted the ball out of his feet before firing under Aaron Ramsdale.
Two minutes later they were ahead, when Graham Burke's speculative 30-yard effort was fumbled by Ramsdale, whose desperate efforts to claw the ball to safety were in vain.
The points were effectively sealed when Lopes darted into the box and found the bottom right-hand corner five minutes into the second period.
Eaves put some gloss on the scoreline with seven minutes left, heading home emphatically from Luke O'Neill's inviting free-kick, before James Hanson replied by burying Dylan Connolly's centre deep into stoppage time.
