Doncaster Rovers saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Two quick second half goals from Wimbledon saw them claim their first win of the season.

Kwesi Appiah and Andy Barcham scored for the hosts in the space of two minutes to ensure they claimed the points in a tight game.

A tight first half saw few chances for either side.

The second half started better and Danny Andrew forced George Long in the Wimbledon goal into his meaningful save of the game.

Doncaster were undone just before the hour with Appiah chipped the ball between two players before he found the bottom corner of the goal.

Any hopes Doncaster had of getting back into the game were ended two minutes later when Barcham cut through the Doncaster midfield to fire home from the edge of the area.

Callum Kennedy came close to adding a third for Wimbledon in the closing minutes when his effort came back off the woodwork.
