Blink and you’ll likely miss at least a couple of goals at Kingsmeadow
In what we believe our Yank brethren may refer to as a “blitz play” or some such, AFC Wimbledon somehow managed to come back from being 0-2 down at home against Cheltenham in League Two on Saturday afternoon to find themselves 3-2 up in the space of 127 seconds – scoring a threesome of quick-fire goals in the 69th, 70th and 71st minute to overturn the deficit.
The feat was such that the club felt compelled to produce and release a commemorative film of the event via their official Youtube channel…
Wimbledon conceded an equaliser just four minutes after the three-goal blizzard, with Cheltenham’s Jason Taylor levelling to make it 3-3, only for the Dons to then go and sneak themselves a late winner in the 91st minute to win the topsy-turvy game 4-3.
Cheltenham’s perplexed boss, Mark Yates, told BBC Radio Gloucestershire that he was “fuming” after the game, saying: “That was probably our best performance of the season, bar the three goals in three minutes.”
Quite the caveat you’ve got yourself there, Mark!
