Marcus Forss on target as AFC Wimbledon take three points on Boxing Day

The action for our players away from Griffin Park

27 December 2019

Marcus Forss sparked the comeback as AFC Wimbledon fought back from a goal behind to win 2-1 at Bristol Rovers on Boxing Day.

Jonson Clarke-Harris netted a 43rd minute penalty as the home side took the advantage into half-time. However, Marcus poked home his 11th of the season, and fourth in as many matches, with 20 minutes to go before Joe Pigott turned things around six minutes from time. The victory lifts The Dons up to 18th ahead of Sunday’s game at home to high-flying Oxford United.

In Sky Bet League Two, Canice Carroll played 75 minutes during Carlisle United’s 0-0 draw at home to Bradford City. The Bantams had the better of the chances as Carlisle went a third game without scoring. It’s now just one win in 12 for The Cumbrians who head to Walsall on Sunday in 21st place. The appearance was Canice’s 16th in all competitions during his loan spell in the North East.

There was no action for our other two loanees with Boreham Wood’s game at Barnet called off because of a waterlogged pitch while Partick Thistle and Reece Cole were without a game. They should both be in action on Saturday as The Wood host Eastleigh while Partick head to Greenock Morton.
