Conference High Flyers AFC Wimbledon struck two late goals to finally sink a dogged Ebbsfleet United in their FA Cup 1st round replay last night. In a match which was a great advert for non league football Wimbledon took an early lead but two quick goals by Ashley Carew put Ebbsfleet into the lead, a lead they held until the 94th minute when Sammy Moore struck to force extra time. Then just as it looked like the game was destined to be decided by a penalty shoot out Moore struck again in injury time to send the Dons through.
The crowd of 2,306 certainly got value for money in this one and Ebbsfleet will feel slightly unlucky having gone out thanks to two last minute goals. Still on the balance of play justice was done and League new boys Stevenage Borough will have their hands full in round 2 if Wimbledon reproduce this type of form.
