Could it be MK Dons vs AFC Wimbledon next season? #bbcfootball

Yes it could Chris. What a set of games that would be!

So proud of my team to once again get to a play off finals. Incredibly emotional right now. #afcwimbledon #bbcfootball

Wimbledon reaction

FT: Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

To go two down and to fightback is absolutely immense. It's great for these fans as we've been through so much over the pas 14 years. Plymouth are a really good team so we'll calm down, set ourselves up and be prepared.

Wimbledon reaction

It's what dreams are made of. I'm more tired now than playing in the game. It means so much for everyone associated with AFC Wimbledon, so bring on Wembley."

FT: Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Wimbledon fans have invaded the pitch, but it's all very good natured as they celebrate with players and management.

The camera phones are out, they're belting out their songs and jumping up and down in joy. Great scenes.

Adebayo Akinfenwa and Lyle Taylor send AFC Wimbledon to Wembley for the first time since their formation in 2002.

Accrington played their part over two legs in a hugely entertaining tie, but it belongs to the Dons.

Wimbledon will face Plymouth for a place in League One next season.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Seamus Conneely stops Ade Azeez from surely putting the tie beyond them.

We're into injury-time.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Tom Beere wins a free-kick for Wimbledon on the edge of the area than sees Accrington defender Tom Davies given a yellow card.

Callum Kennedy's free-kick beats the wall but too high over the crossbar.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Accrington boss John Coleman is arms folded, stood still on the touchline.

He needs a moment of brilliance from someone to get them into it.

Ross Etheridge saves from Ade Azeez to keep them in the game.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

He made Wimbledon's second goal but if Jake Reeves' touch was better he might have got their third but he was unable to control a cross with no defender near him.

All route one, direct stuff from Accrington at the moment as they look for an equaliser in this tie.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Big handball appeals by Accrington as Terry Gornell tries to pass across the box.

The referee is uninterested with the appeals.

Lyle Taylor looks as if he is struggling at the moment for the Dons up top.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

We're back under way with a throw-in.

Game halted by floodlight failure

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Some cheers around the Wham Stadium as it looks as if the lights are back coming back on.

The referee is heading back to the middle of the pitch and we're about to get back under way.

If they can't fix it, both sets of players are happy to play. The game has to go ahead if it can't get going in the next five minutes.

Game halted by floodlight failure

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Just a reminder, we still have six minutes to play at the Wham Stadium for a chance to face Plymouth at Wembley.

One side of the pitch is fine, but it looks as if two sets of floodlights have gone out, which we are waiting to come back on so we can finish this game.

If you're an electrician in East Lancashire, your assistance is needed.

Game halted by floodlight failure

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Sky TV are reporting that the referee is going to take the players off to allow the floodlights to cool down. 

Apparently some smoke is coming from the set that has turned itself off - maybe they're not used to being on this long?

Game halted by floodlight failure

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

The fans are helpfully getting their mobile phones out and putting the torches on... it's not quite had the desired effect.

The referee is still in talks with club officials.

Game halted by floodlight failure

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Put another penny in the meter is the phrase right?

A set of floodlights go out at the Wham Stadium... and then another set!

The referee stops the game and consults with the stadium manager.

Floodlight failure, unbelievable! #AFCW

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Accrington v AFC Wimbledon
Rex Features

Wimbledon, as you'd expect, taking their time over every throw and looking to hold the ball up as much as possible at the moment.

Brad Halliday's first real involvement is a driving run down the right for Stanley to win them a corner that is headed just wide when delivered.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Accrington throwing men forward at the moment.

Left-back Adam Buxton tries a spectacular effort from about 35 yards out that is no where near as he holds his head in his hands.

A number of finger nails being bitten you'd imagine at the Wham Stadium.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

An awkward one for Kelle Roos to deal with that he makes look harder than it was from a long range effort that bounced just in front of him.

After a long clearance, Adebayo Akinfenwa nearly flicks Ade Azeez on behind the defence.

KICK-OFF

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

A quick sip of water, a shake of the legs to get rid of the lactic acid and we're back underway.

Wimbledon shooting towards the one stand where all their fans are based and Accrington's fans will be trying to suck the ball in at the other end.

HALF-TIME

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

An eventful 19 minutes of football, but Lyle Taylor's strike is sending Wimbledon through.

Both managers take the chance to dish out some final instructions.

Terry Gornell or for Piero Mingoia for Accrington when we get going.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Dons striker Lyle Taylor is already in the corner trying to waste some time for the visitors as they try and reach the half-time period in extra time.

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

We've got four minutes of injury-time in extra time if you get that? Another four minutes of 15 allotted in the first period of extra time.

Striker Terry Gornell is be readied by Accrington for more firepower up front.

Just before that happens, Adebayo Akinfenwa is given a yellow card.

GOAL (Taylor)

Accrington 2-2 Wimbledon

Lyle Taylor gets the goal and probably the headlines, but this goal is all about the run of Jake Reeves.

He bursts through one and then two challenges, rounds another defender and his shot is parried when one-on-one with the keeper.

But it falls kindly to striker Taylor to first time drill home his 22nd of the season.

Wimbledon are heading to Wembley.

Lyle Taylor has done it! Goal! Accy 2-2 Dons. #AFCW

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Another driving run from Josh Windass lays in Romuald Boco down the left wing.

He cuts inside, thinks about a cross a couple of times and then his deflected shot is eventually gathered by Kelle Roos.

We're into triple figures of minutes now everyone.

SUBSTITUTION

Andy Barcham

A match-winner in the first leg, can Tom Beere do it again?

He comes on for Andy Barcham for Wimbledon, while Brad Halliday replaces Matty Pearson for Accrington.

CLOSE!

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Off the line from Accrington!

A deep cross is headed back across goal by Dons striker Adebayo Akinfenwa and Ade Azeez turns it towards goal but a bicycle kick but Tom Davies hacks it clear.

At the other end, Romuald Boco pulls a shot wide.

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

No real energy or momentum from either side in extra time, both sides have struggled to keep the ball.

Romuald Boco is back on his feet after that challenge.

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Well the Wimbledon captain Barry Fuller is lucky to still be on the pitch here.

He's got a yellow card, but he led with the elbow into an aerial challenge that has left Romuald Boco on the floor with a lot of blood coming from his mouth.

KICK-OFF

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Dannie Bulman

It was a four-minute turnaround and we're back under way at the Wham Stadium.

Another 30 minutes at least to go.

EXTRA TIME

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

For the first time in the Football League play-offs this season, we're into extra time.

Josh Windass and Piero Mingoia goals had given Accrington the lead in the tie but Adebayo Akinfenwa levelled it up so we're off for another 30 minutes, and possibly penalties.

SUBSTITUTION

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Shay McCartan's night is over as Romuald Boko comes on for him. He's got a minute to be a hero.

Or then another 30 minutes in extra-time.

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Bayo Akinfenwa

I keep mentioning him, but he keeps being in all the action.

Adebayo Akinfenwa miscues his first effort on the edge of the box but it falls to him again and his drilled effort flies not far wide.

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Adebayo Akinfenwa is incensed that he hasn't won a free-kick with Accrington players all over him.

Thirty seconds later, Darius Charles gets the first yellow card of the two legs for arguing with the referee, after the Dons had won a free-kick!

INJURY TIME

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

What do you want when the tie is all square?

How about five more minutes to try and find a winner? You've got it.

Accrington 2-1 Wimbledon

Darius Charles

Accrington with all the possession at the moment.

Darius Charles deals with a left wing cross superbly, getting in front of the incoming attackers.

Is someone ready to find a Wembley winner?
