AFC Wimbledon held on to earn a draw against Bristol Rovers despite captain Paul Robinson being sent off after only four minutes at Kingsmeadow.

The 33-year-old defender was adjudged to have brought down Ellis Harrison after Matty Taylor had put through the Rovers man through on goal.

However, the visitors struggled to make the most of their advantage with Billy Bodin's 25-yard shot sailing wide.

Barry Fuller's challenge denied Daniel Leadbitter late on as the Dons held on.

And the hosts were unlucky not to secure an unlikely victory as Callum Kennedy headed wide.

Ardley on AFC Wimbledon v Bristol Rovers

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley speaks to BBC Radio London:

"First and foremost, I'm really, really disappointed with the match officials. I've watched the footage back three times, it is as clear a foot back to the goalkeeper as you'll ever see from Paul Robinson.

"Four minutes into the game, a massive call, got it wrong, and that probably isn't the first time that's happened against us, but it's really disappointing.

"If you saw the way the boys played and the effort they put in, I believe we would have won with 11 men. You can never say that, but I'm proud of the performance."
