AFC Wimbledon made it back-to-back league wins as a Marcus Forss hat-trick gave the Dons an impressive 4-1 victory at Southend United.

The on-loan Brentford forward took just five minutes to open the scoring at Roots Hall, firing home a deflected right-footed shot from 12 yards.

And six minutes later the 20-year-old had his second, netting from close range following a goalmouth scramble.

Southend’s Timothee Dieng made it 2-1 two minutes later, heading home Nathan Ralph’s left-wing cross.

However, Forss grabbed the match ball in the 52nd minute, converting a penalty after Rob Kiernan brought down Ryan Delaney.

And Delaney rounded off the scoring in the 72nd minute, heading home Max Sanders’ corner to give Wimbledon their first away win of the season.
