AFC Wimbledon 2-2 Charlton Athletic, League One: report, ratings and verdict


AFC Wimbledon 4-2-3-1



Charlton Athletic 4-4-2

Half Time: 1 - 2 Kingsmeadow ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

AFC Wimbledon twice came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic in a seesawing match at Plough Lane.

A frenetic start saw three goals in just over 10 minutes with a Jayden Stockley header opening the scoring for Charlton in the tenth minute.

Five minutes later the Dons were level as Ryan Longman struck a low shot past Charlton keeper Ben Amos before Diallang Jaiyesimi restored the visitors lead in the 21st minute.

Although the rest of the opening period was mostly chanceless, the second-half saw more end-to-end action.

Longman’s perfectly placed low cross was unable to be converted for the Dons while at the other end Andrew Shinnie’s right footed shot skidded just wide.

However, a Charlton mistake gifted Wimbledon an equaliser as a backpass by Akin Famewo left Amos in no man’s land with Longman intercepting to tap home.

Joe Pigott then had two chances for Wimbledon to snatch the win – striking the post with one effort before seeing Amos deny his free-kick late on.

The draw leaves AFC Wimbledon one point from safety while Charlton Athletic remain in the final Play-Off place of sixth.

Key Points

Check out all the key talking points and reaction from London Football Scene below…

Key Moment

A slip in concentration from Akin Famewo gave Wimbledon an unlikely but nonetheless deserved equaliser.

Moan of the Match

Joe Pigott once again had chances to end his goal drought but sadly it was extended to nine league games.

Talking Point

Charlton fans will be concerned for Conor Washington after the in-form forward limped off the field after just five minutes – will the Addicks be able to cope without him?

Man of the Match

Ryan Longman – the Wimbledon midfielder looked excellent driving forward and was unlucky not to score Plough Lane’s first hat-trick.

Referee Watch

Charles Breakspear (Surrey) – apart from an initial injury period early on to tend to Conor Washington the referee’s whistle was barely blown.


The Charlton’s defence ‘fruity language’ was loud enough to make BBC London’s airwaves and send a few giggles around the Plough Lane press box.


A promising Charlton performance for new manager Nigel Adkins but an embarrassing equaliser gave Wimbledon a point they undoubtedly deserved.
