Cheltenham went ahead after just two minutes but The Dons managed to fight back and actually lead 4-1 going into the final 17 minutes of the match. A goal on 73 minutes from Cheltenham was added to by a Ben Heneghan own goal to make it 4-3 but Wimbledon held out to claim the win. Aaron played the final 22 minutes of the fixture and his side are away at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday evening.

Alex’s Swindon reached the Third Round for the first time in a decade with a 2-1 win over Walsall away from home. The goals came from Tyreece Simpson and Kaine Kesler-Hayden. Alex was an unused substitute for the side and they face Leyton Orient away from home on Tuesday evening in the league.

Its wasn’t such good news for Burton Albion as a Staffordshire derby saw them bow out of the competition at the hands of Port Vale on home soil.

Finally, in Scotland Jaakko Oksanen grabbed an assist for Greenock Morton as they drew 2-2 with Ayr United. Gozie Ugwu grabbed both of the side’s goals but the draw wasn’t enough to prevent the departure of manager Gus MacPherson in the aftermath of the match. The side are eighth in the Scottish Championship but are level on points with the two teams who are directly below them in Dundermline and Queen of the South.
