Plymouth Argyle boss Carl Fletcher admitted that AFC Wimbledon were worth the three points after their 2-1 win on Saturday.

Byron Harrison had given the Dons the lead before Rhys Griffiths equalised in the 89th minutes.

However, Wimbledon went down the other end and scored the winner through Rashid Yussuff.

“We let ourselves down in the first half and in the second half we went more direct because we just weren’t at the races with trying to pass it.

“We kept huffing and puffing and eventually got back into the game but then a deflected shot ended up in our net, which is hard to take.

Despite that, Fletcher acknowledged that his side deserved nothing from the game.

“We were disappointed anyway with the way the whole game was, and the way we performed.

“To be honest, we got what we deserved.”
