AFC Wimbledon 2-2 Millwall- Match Report

AFC Wimbledon twice hit back from goal down to grab point against Millwall

AFC Wimbledon battled back from a goal down twice to earn a 2-2 draw with in-form Millwall in a pulsating London derby at Kingsmeadow.

The Lions, buoyed by three consecutive wins, began brightly and took a fifth-minute lead through Aiden O'Brien's superb 25-yard strike.

Behind for just seven minutes, the Dons responded through Lyle Taylor's excellent glancing header for his 10th goal of the season.

Hesitant Wimbledon defending allowed Steve Morison to coolly lob James Shea and restore Millwall's lead five minutes before the break.

Refusing to lie down, Neal Ardley's side drew level again just after the restart, as Taylor's swinging cross was met by Tom Elliott, who thumped his header beyond Jordan Archer.

Darius Charles wasted a great chance to complete the comeback, powering a header over the cross bar from inside the six-yard box.

With a late winner at stake, both goalkeepers produced fine saves to keep the scores level, as Shea reacted smartly to prevent Paul Robinson from heading into his own net before Archer, at full stretch, kept out Jake Reeves at the other end.
