After a goalless first half, AFC Wimbledon took the initiative in the second half, thanks to Ollie Palmer giving AFC Wimbledon the lead, 85 minutes in. In the end though, their celebrations were kept brief, as Paul Kalambayi equalised for Gillingham FC just before the final whistle and seeing the game end 1-1.
