Kwame Thomas headed Rovers into a deserved lead in a first half they fully controlled with one of their best 45 minute performances in some time.

But Donervon Daniels conceded a penalty, scored by Marcus Forss, and Callum Reilly slotted home on the counterattack as Wimbledon surged ahead in the second half.

Moore says Wimbledon did not have to earn their way back into the game, nor their chance to go ahead as Rovers lacked concentration at key moments after the break.

“It was a bit of a scrappy affair in the second half and we’re bitterly disappointed in the two goals that we’ve given away which has resulted in them winning the game,” Moore said.

“We’ve given them two goals. They weren’t earned and we’ve just given them away.

“We didn’t capitalise on the chances we had and then we didn’t stay concentrated to see the game out which has resulted in us giving them two goals.

“We’ve given them two goals and if you take those two goals out, we win the game.

“We set our stall out to come and get the three points.

“It was a great start and a really good first 45 minutes. We spoke at half time about not letting any complacency creep in and we stay on the front foot and apply ourselves in the second half like we did in the first – if not more.

“It’s about a lack of concentration.”
