Forest Green 2-5 AFC Wimbledon

Jon Main
Jon Main netted his fourth and fifth goals of the season

AFC Wimbledon climbed to sixth in the Blue Square Premier with a thrilling victory over Forest Green Rovers.

Lewis Taylor gave the visitors the lead after just 36 seconds only for Sean Rigg to equalise from inside the box.

Jon Main restored Wimbledon's lead from the edge of the penalty area, but David Brown's header levelled it up at 2-2.

Danny Kedwell poked home before half-time and headed the fourth after the break, with Main's close-range effort completing the scoring.

Forest Green boss Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

"I have to be careful with this group of players - because they are very young - that I don't expect them to run before they can walk.

"I thought we were ready to play an expansive game but we are not clever enough for that, we are not experienced enough for that."
