Adam Roscrow inspired Wimbledon’s second-half fightback against Charlton

AFC Wimbledon came from behind to beat Charlton 2-1 in their opening game in the EFL Trophy.

Erhun Oztumer gave Charlton the lead at Loftus Road with a fine free-kick midway through the first half.

But the lead lasted just 12 seconds into the second period as Adam Roscrow applied the finishing counter to a quick break.

Terell Thomas’ towering header sealed Wimbledon the victory on 58 minutes as they moved top of Group O.

Fleetwood also rallied from a goal down to beat Carlisle 3-1 at Brunton Park.

Gime Toure bundled Carlisle in front 36 minutes into the Group A clash but Callum Camps drew the visitors level a minute before the interval.

Two second-half headers from Harvey Saunders put Fleetwood in control and Carlisle hopes ended when Toure was shown a straight red for lashing out at Wes Burns.
