Alan Bennett: The only thing missing was a cup!

Seven years since Wimbledon stayed up on the final day against Fleetwood

27 April 2020

It's seven years since that tension-filled Saturday afternoon when Jack Midson's penalty maintained our status as a league club.

It looked like the Dons were heading back to non league when Andy Mangan equalised in the 64th minute, but Jack kept his cool from the spot to secure a vital 2-1 victory. The final whistle signalled jubilant scenes with supporters on the pitch and hero Jack raised aloft after scoring the winner. It's a match that Dons supporters will never forget. Indeed, Alan Bennett, who played a key role that season, said that the only thing missing was a cup!

Take a look below at a video featuring Alan, Jack, and the goals from that day.
