Bristol Rovers 3-0 AFC Wimbledon- Match Report

Last updated : 30 November 2013




Pirates make Dons walk the plank

First-half goals from David Clarkson and Tom Parkes set struggling Bristol Rovers on course for a 3-0 League Two victory over an AFC Wimbledon team who finished the game with 10 men at the Memorial Stadium.


Clarkson volleyed the hosts ahead from the right-hand corner of the penalty area after 19 minutes after Matt Harrold had controlled a Michael Smith free-kick.


Parkes doubled the advantage 12 minutes later, heading powerfully home from eight yards out after Dons goalkeeper Ross Worner had hesitated over coming out to intercept a Lee Brown corner.


Visiting midfielder Sammy Moore was sent off for a second yellow card eight minutes from time before Harrold completed a convincing win by hammering home an 89th-minute penalty after substitute Ellis Harrison had been fouled.


AFC Wimbledon twice went close at the end of the first half - centre-back Alan Bennett sent a glancing header inches wide and Andy Frampton stabbed a Callum Kennedy corner just past a post.


But Rovers threatened more goals before the break with Worner saving well from Eliot Richards.
