Weymouth boss Bobby Wilkinson was quick to praise the fans that travelled to Wimbledon last night as the Terras crashed out of the FA Cup in their replay against the Dons 4-2 on aggregate.

Around 560 fans travelled through terrible conditions on Tuesday, with Wilkinson saying “500 fans here tonight, through a crisis, through the weather and they were singing and chanting the whole game.”

The Terras took the game to a replay in London after a 1-1 draw at the Bob Lucas Stadium at the start of the month and looked the more dangerous side in the first half.

The first dangerous chance of the game fell to Tom Blair in the 23rd minute. Keelan O’Connell tried to curl a shot from outside of the box on the far side which forced the keeper to parry the ball away but only as far as Blair in the 6 yard box. The forward had an open goal in front of him but his connection was poor which saw the ball blaze over the crossbar. 

Ten minutes later the Terras hit the woodwork. The ball was cleared by the Dons upfield which was taken down by Xander McBurnie. The Weymouth captain controlled the ball well before taking on a shot from 30 yards out which ricocheted off the bar.

However, despite their valiant work the Terras were left to rue their chances as Ayoub Assal scored for the Dons 3 minutes into the second half.

The Dons doubled their lead in the 61st minute through a header from Chislett before the substitute bagged his brace 2 minutes later after going one-on-one with Zaki Oualah. 

The travelling Terras fans got something to cheer in the 78th minute as Ash scored a consolation goal from a header after a great cross from Blair.

After the game, Dons boss Johnnie Johnson highlighted Weymouth’s battling performance saying: “It’s taken us two games to beat a tough side.”

About his players performance, the Weymouth gaffer said: “We come as a group tonight, I’m speechless for the first time because I can’t believe how fantastic we were.” 

Terras season ticket holder Patrick Thorne said “I’m proud of the performance on the pitch from the lads, but we [the fans] were incredible!”
