A review of Sunday's action in the FA Cup second round.

  • Jon Otsemobor scores MK Dons' late winner against AFC Wimbledon.
  • Leyton Orient won 4-2 at Alfreton. 

Jon Otsemobor scored a last-gasp winner to send MK Dons into the FA Cup third round with a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon.

Jack Midson's diving header had looked set to earn Wimbledon a replay after cancelling out Stephen Gleeson's stunning opener, but Otsemobor flicked home in the last minute to break the visitors' hearts.

The match was the first between the two clubs since 1988 FA Cup winners Wimbledon FC were uprooted from south west London in 2003 and moved over 50 miles north of the capital to the Buckinghamshire town, before being renamed MK Dons the following year.

Angry Wimbledon FC fans subsequently formed AFC Wimbledon from scratch in the Combined Counties League before enjoying a rapid rise up the football pyramid, and are now just one division below npower League One promotion challengers MK Dons.

In the day's other match, David Mooney and Dean Cox proved the FA Cup heroes again for Leyton Orient as their doubles beat Alfreton in a thrilling 4-2 victory.

Conference side Alfreton took the lead early on and laid siege to Orient's goal having pulled it back to 3-2 - striking woodwork four times in total - but the League One side clung on.

The hosts flew out of the blocks and were ahead on four minutes when top-scorer Paul Clayton fired under Ryan Allsop from 12 yards.

Ben Tomlinson then struck a post and Josh Law's deflected free-kick hit Allsop's bar as the non-league side dominated but Dean Cox levelled for Orient against the run of play on 25 minutes.

On the half-hour mark the visitors were ahead when Lee Cook's corner was flicked on and Mooney - who scored the goal that broke Gloucester's resistance in the previous round - volleyed home.

Alfreton were shell-shocked and Mooney had his second just six minutes later, heading home Cook's left-wing cross.

On 52 minutes Alfreton pulled a goal back as Tomlinson scrambled home from close range and while the hosts peppered Allsop's goal - Law hitting the bar with another free-kick and Tomlinson from open play - Cox grabbed another late on.
