AFC Bournemouth under-21s showed tremendous character to come back from 2-0 down to take a 2-2 draw against Wimbledon at Canford Park Arena.

AFC Bournemouth under-21s showed tremendous character to come back from 2-0 down to take a 2-2 draw against AFC Wimbledon at Canford Park Arena.

In the driving rain, two goals in two second-half minutes meant the Cherries took a share of the spoils, with an own goal and Jake Scrimshaw's finish coming after the hour mark.

The second half was a dominant one for Shaun Cooper's side, but they couldn't find the breakthrough despite a much-improved showing.

A good start to the contest saw Tyrell Hamilton and Jordan Zemura go close, before an excellent double save from Will Dennis ensured things remained level.

But on the half-an-hour mark, the visitors had the lead when their captain Jack Rudoni got the ball out of his feet in the area and hit a low left-footed strike right into the bottom corner.

A good response followed from the Cherries and, a minute later, Scrimshaw hit a superb effort which whizzed an inch past the post.

The rain continued to drive down as the second half started and, three minutes in, Hamilton skipped into the penalty area, but his low finish was superbly saved.

As a result of that stop, Wimbledon broke extremely quickly and Adam Roscrow was able to make it 2-0 in the area.

But the Cherries got themselves back in it with a superb set-play delivery.

Tom Dinsmore whipped a magnificent delivery into the box which was well met by captain Tyler Cordner. Cordner's header caused mayhem in the box and Scrimshaw got a touch before it was bundled over the line by a visiting defender.

And just two minutes later, the comeback was completed.

Scrimshaw displayed his predatory instincts by carrying the ball one-on-one right up to the goalkeeper before holding his nerve and slotting a low effort into the corner.

From that moment on, there only looked like one winner, with Zemura's overlapping runs causing havoc for the Dons backline.

Defender Corey Jordan hit one narrowly over from distance, but a moment of controversy followed with seven minutes left.

After battling for a long ball over the top, Scrimshaw looked set to go through one-on-one. The visiting goalkeeper however had other ideas, racing off his line and as Scrimshaw rounded him, the striker was kicked to the floor.

To the amazement of everyone at Canford Park Arena, the referee was unmoved.

Despite some very good late pressure, the Cherries were unable to make further inroads and were left with a draw to take into next week's friendly against Oxford United.
