AFC Wimbledon 3-1 Gillingham

AFC Wimbledon moved up to fourth in League Two with a comfortable victory over Gillingham.

Christian Jolley put the hosts in front with a tidy finish after a slip by Gills defender Matt Lawrence and he added a second with a thumping header from Sam Hatton's centre.

Jack Midson made it 3-0 with a simple finish after more poor defending from the visitors.

Charlie Lee's 25-yarder was scant consolation for Gillingham.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

AFC Wimbledon boss Terry Brown told BBC London 94.9:

Brown keeps feet on the ground

"I expect my midfield to contribute some goals now, and need goals from other areas, but it was a great win, a big win for the club and playing in front of a sell-out crowd shows how far this club has come in nine years.

"I still ask for the Plymouth and Hereford scores, only until we are safe can we look further up the table."

Kuffour pleased with Gills debut despite defeat

Gillingham's new loan striker Jo Kuffour told BBC Radio Kent:

"It was a tough game. We knew it was going to be tough. I've played against them already this season for Bristol Rovers and they pass the ball well.

"I thought we were sloppy at the start of the game - gifted them two early goals. I thought we bounced back well in the second half and showed a lot of character.

"We could have maybe got back into it - their keeper pulled off a couple of good saves, and a few flashed across the box but it didn't seem like it was going to go in for us today."
