AFC Wimbledon 2-3 Scunthorpe United

Scunthorpe winger Josh Morris scored a brace to guide his side to victory at AFC Wimbledon.

It was a first win for Stuart McCall as Scunthorpe boss and he remains unbeaten after taking over last month.

Morris opened the scoring by sending a looping free-kick from the right over home goalkeeper Tom King.

The winger doubled the Iron's lead when he raced through to slot home Matthew Lund's through ball.

Dons were rejuvenated in the second half and pulled one back through midfielder Liam Trotter when he reacted first to nod in Tennai Watson's cross.

But the home side were pegged back once more soon after as Ryan Colclough skinned Dons full-back Ben Purrington before crossing for striker Ike Ugbo to score.

Purrington amended for his mistake at the other end by beating Colclough to set up Kwesi Appiah for a headed finish.

Wimbledon continued to push for an equaliser but were unable to draw level as Scunthorpe earned their first win since the opening day of the season.
