John Coleman has full faith that his players will overcome the 1-0 deficit at the Wham Stadium on Wednesday in the play-off semi-final second leg.

Tom Beere scored in injury-time to give AFC Wimbledon the advantage but keeper Kelle Roos also pulled off a superb last ditch save to deny Shay McCartan an equaliser.

Both sides also hit the woodwork with Tariqe Fosu hitting the post for Stanley and Ade Akinfenwa for the Dons.

Coleman felt there should have been a foul given to the Reds in the build-up to the Dons winner but is also confident his side can overturn the scoreline.

“It was a good game, full of blood and thunder, and it’s not dead,” said Coleman. “There is a lot of football to be played and we are disappointed with the goal we conceded as we should have had a foul in the build-up.

“There were a lot of challenges which went unpunished and, when they go unpunished, players carry on doing it.

“Wimbledon are a good side but we are and we have shown we are resilient and we can dig in and there is all to play for.

“We still made chances and Shay must be cursed as the keeper has made an unbelievable save from him.

“We are still in with a fighting chance and we have got to believe in ourselves. We have got players who can win a game at the drop of a hat and, if there is any justice, we will win on Wednesday.

“You could see how hurt the players were when they have conceded but our dressing room is made up of big characters and I have always had belief in this group of players.

“Every time we have had a defeat this season we have bounced back and there is no reason we can’t do that on Wednesday.”
