Rochdale 1-2 AFC Wimbledon

Sammy Moore

AFC Wimbledon beat Rochdale to become the first team to win at Spotland in League Two this season.

Jamie Allan put the hosts in front on his debut with a cushioned right-footed volley from inside the box.

Wimbledon equalised when Sammy Moore converted Callum Kennedy's cross before the floodlights went off after one was struck by lightning.

Play resumed after a 25-minute delay and Andy Frampton hammered home to give the visitors their second away win.

Only three of the four floodlights were in operation for the final 15 minutes.
