Two goals in the final 10 minutes saw AFC Wimbledon emerge 2-0 victors against Notts County in Sky Bet League Two.

Substitute Connell Rawlinson’s own goal saw the visitors lead late on, with on-loan Kofi Balmer’s header doubling the Magpies woes, leaving them winless at home in 2024.

Dons almost found themselves in front within the first minute when Omar Bugiel saw the ball land at his feet inside the area, firing his shot over the crossbar.

Macaulay Langstaff squandered the best chance of the half after a neat one-two inside the area, only to place his effort well over.

The hosts’ top scorer almost made amends early in the second half but was unable to turn home Aaron Nemane’s delivery on the line.

Johnnie Jackson’s side would take the lead late on when Balmer’s throw-in was turned beyond his own goalkeeper by Rawlinson.

The lead was doubled five minutes later, with Ronan Curtis’ delivery from a corner headed powerfully beyond Sam Slocombe by Balmer for the Northern Ireland international’s first goal for Wimbledon since he joined on loan from Crystal Palace.
