League Two: Cheltenham 2 AFC Wimbledon 1

AFC Wimbledon replaced Plymouth Argyle at the foot of League Two after losing 2-1 at Cheltenham.

The Dons had made some progress in February, going four games unbeaten but they were up against it after ten minutes at Whaddon Road.

Steve Elliott headed the opener for the Robins before Darren Carter fired the 11 minutes after the restart.

Brennan Dickenson pulled one back for Wimbledon but it was not enough to change the outcome of the match.
