AFC Wimbledon’s recent League One resurgence was ended by a 4-2 defeat to Gillingham at Kingsmeadow.

Having won their last three games, the Dons raced into a 22nd minute lead as Michael Folivi fired past Gills stopper Tomas Holy after good work from Scott Wagstaff.

However Gillingham equalised against the run of play five minutes before the interval as Leonardo da Silva Lopes found Brandon Hanlan to fire past Wimbledon stopper Aaron Ramsdale.

And two minutes later the home side were undone by a goalkeeping error from Ramsdale – fumbling Graham Burke’s speculative 30-yard effort into his own goal.

The win was then effectively sealed as Lopes made it 3-1 in the 50th minute before Tom Eaves put further gloss on the scoreline seven minutes from time.

James Hanson did strike a consolation deep into stoppage time but the result means Wimbledon are now second bottom but crucially still only three points from safety.
