Mansfield Town 2-1 AFC Wimbledon

Rakish Bingham's late goal moved Mansfield into mid-table in League Two after victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Lee Beevers's deflected effort gave the Stags the lead after the Dons failed to clear a Chris Clements free-kick.

Ryan Tafazolli's handball allowed George Francomb to equalise from the penalty spot before Adebayo Azeez came close to putting the visitors ahead.

But substitute Bingham struck home from 12 yards out to earn Mansfield their third win in five games.

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC London 94.9:

Ardley on Mansfield v AFC Wimbledon

"I can't fault the effort and competitive edge we showed. We got better as the second half went on and had the setback of the goal, but came back.

"We lost the game because we missed three one-on-ones at 1-1 and should really have been out of sight.

"We got punished, but that is the way football goes.

"All I can fault is a little bit of know-how and poor finishing because we should have won."
