Accrington Stanley 3-4 AFC Wimbledon

Lyle Taylor
Lyle Taylor celebrates getting what proved to be AFC Wimbledon's winner

AFC Wimbledon scored four times away from home for the first time in League Two since January 2012 as they twice came from behind to beat Accrington.

Billy Kee scored twice in the first 10 minutes for Accrington, but Dannie Bulman pulled one back from 20 yards.

Lyle Taylor turned in a George Francomb cross to equalise before Sean McConville put Stanley ahead once more.

Bulman made it 3-3 from the edge of the box just before half-time before Taylor found the far corner for the winner.

AFC Wimbledon first-team coach Simon Bassey told BBC Radio London:

"When you come away from home, you want to be solid, especially early on.

"To be two down after 10 minutes, two attempts on goal, is certainly not what we planned and not what we worked on.

"Full credit to the boys, they showed terrific spirit to come back and I thought we always looked a threat going forward.

"From a coaches point of view, it was probably a living nightmare at times. For a neutral, I'm sure you'll go away and think what a fantastic game."
