AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Forest Green Rovers

Elliott Frear scored an injury-time winner as National League leaders Forest Green Rovers won at Wimbledon.

Former West Brom midfielder Darren Carter's 10-yard shot put the visitors ahead before Callum Kennedy equalised with a neat finish.

Rovers' Charlie Clough wasted a great chance, heading against the bar with the goal at his mercy and Sean Rigg went close for the Dons.

But in the 93rd minute Frear beat his marker and shot in the bottom corner.

Forest Green Rovers' Manager Ady Pennock told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"It was our day today, and I'm very chuffed.
