'Of course I meant it!' joked George Williams after his cross sailed over Bradford keeper Colin Doyle to give Dons a 2-1 lead at Valley Parade on Tuesday night.

The defender’s 35th minute cross beat the keeper at the far post, clipping the upright before going as Dons retook the lead.

He continued: “I looked up, saw him off his line and thought I’ll put it back stick!

“No, I just put it in the box, and it looped in - I didn’t really mean it!

“The gaffer said to put the ball in the box, so as soon as it fell to me I did.

“As it was in the air, I heard someone have a go at me because it looked like it was going out for a goal kick and then it looped in at the back stick. It’s about putting it in the area and seeing what happens.”

Stuart O’Keefe’s opener in the 2-2 draw also had an element of luck to it, taking a big deflection to open the scoring, but Williams said: “If you don’t shoot, you don’t score. Stuart’s shot took a deflection but we’ll take it.

“We felt we could go on and win it, but they’re undefeated here for a long time so it felt like a good point.”
