Lyle Taylor scores twice as AFC Wimbledon sink Charlton

Posted Monday, December 04, 2017 by PA

Lyle Taylor scored twice as AFC Wimbledon claimed a spot in the third round of the FA Cup with a 3-1 win against League One rivals Charlton.

After a feisty start, the Dons went ahead when Deji Oshilaja stole the ball 20 yards out and surged into the box, nudging the ball to Cody McDonald, who fired home.

Charlton clawed themselves level 10 minutes later when Mark Marshall skipped past a defender and crossed for Karlan Ahearne-Grant to poke home.

The Addicks almost went ahead early in the second half when Dons goalkeeper George Long somehow managed to claw a deflected Jay Dasilva shot onto the bar, with Josh Magennis blasting the rebound over.

Wimbledon were 2-1 up after 70 minutes when McDonald shrugged off a challenge before racing into the box and squaring for Taylor to fire home.

And the home side secured their progress moments later when Taylor converted from the penalty spot after Andy Barcham was felled in the area.
