Byron Moore scores winner for Bristol Rovers after just 11 seconds

Byron Moore scored Bristol Rovers' quickest ever league goal as they beat AFC Wimbledon 1-0 to keep their Sky Bet League One play-off hopes alive.

With just 11 seconds on the clock Moore latched onto a Ellis Harrison knockdown and found the bottom corner for Rovers, who are four points outside the top six.

Billy Bodin thought he added a second on the 15-minute mark but the linesman judged the winger to be offside.

Wimbledon dominated possession for long stages but couldn't find an equaliser from a host of half chances.

Lyle Taylor proved Wimbledon's bright spark, first denied by Joe Lumley, before seeing his free-kick blocked and his header from the subsequent corner narrowly glimpse past the post.

Less than a minute into the second half Taylor drew another save from Lumley with a near-post flick.

The hosts dominated the second half but failed to find an equaliser with Taylor, Jonathan Tyrone Meades and Barnett all passing up half chances.
