Ayoub: We showed character once again as a team

Match-winner interviewed after his spectacular strike

12 September 2021

Ayoub Assal confessed he couldn't actually remember too much about his wonder-strike, deep into time added on at Morecambe, that took us to fourth in the League One table!

"To be honest with you, I can't even remember what happened! That's how quick it went!" said Ayoub shortly after the final whistle of the seven-goal thriller, which the Dons edged 4-3 at the Mazuma Stadium. 

"It was a great shift from the boys, they didn't give up. The backroom staff kept us at it the whole week. Now we move onto the next game, win after win, we keep going. It got a bit out of hand, to be honest. Defensively it was a bit sloppy in the second-half, but we showed character once again as a team. That's the main thing - so that's a positive."

Fortunately for Ayoub and Wimbledon fans, we can relive all four of our goals, that took us to 22 for the season.

Midfielder Anthony Hartigan struck a free-kick from an acute angle that gave us an early lead, Ethan Chislett brought us back level after we'd fallen behind, top scorer Will Nightingale levelled for us again, all before Ayoub's incredible late winner.
