Ghanaian striker Kwesi Appiah assisted and struck the match-winner for AFC Wimbledon as they survived at Fleetwood with a 3-2 away win.
The 28-year-old striker, who is seeking for a return to the Ghana national team for the 2019 AFCON, has now scored twice in his last two competitive games for The Dons.
Appiah assisted Anthony Hartigan for Wimbledon’s second goal of the game with a brilliant visionary pass in the 55th minute but the hosts fought back into the game by scoring twice.
A long ball picked out Appiah, who showed good awareness to hold the ball up and pick out Anthony Hartigan. The 18-year-old struck first time with a lovely effort that left Fleetwood keeper Alex Cairns with no chance.
Appiah turned onto his left foot and struck a cracking effort from outside the area that found the bottom corner.
Kwesi Appiah notched a dramatic winner in the 90th minute and Wally saluted his work-rate in leading the line up front on his own.
“Kwesi made Anthony’s goal as well,” said Wally. “It has been difficult for him to play up front on his own and I want to get someone up there with him. The formation that we played here today and at Portsmouth was forced upon us really, but I think we played well in both games. I want to get someone up there to share the load, as working up there on your own against two uncompromising centre backs is difficult. To keep going up there on his own and get the winner was terrific for him.”
