Dons give Robins what four: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Jack Midson showed Cheltenham what they are missing following their failed attempt to land his services over the summer as he helped AFC Wimbledon to a thumping 4-1 victory.

Midson, who swapped Oxford for the Dons in June despite interest from Town, bagged the third goal of a routine afternoon for the home side after 66 minutes

Ricky Wellard`s header and an own goal from Steve Elliott had put Wimbledon two up while Rashid Yussuff added a fourth, Darryl Duffy pulling one back for Cheltenham.

Terry Brown`s side opened the scoring in the 31st minute when Sammy Hatton's cross from the right was headed in by Wellard.

Cheltenham wasted a glaring opportunity to equalise after 35 minutes when Josh Low set up Jimmy Spencer in space in the penalty area, but the young striker made a mess of his shot.

Things worsened for Cheltenham five minutes before half-time when Lee Minshull's cross was turned into his own net by a lunging Elliott.

Midson put the result beyond doubt with the third, finishing well after good play from substitute Yussuff, who struck the fourth in the 85th minute.

Duffy headed in a consolation for Cheltenham from Danny Andrew's cross in the final minute.
