Warren O'Hora celebrates his goal with Will Grigg

Warren O'Hora felt he shouldn't celebrate his first senior goal after conceding a penalty earlier in the game against Gillingham.

The 21-year-old was judged to have handled in the 27th minute with Dons a goal to the good at Priestfield following Will Grigg's opener, allowing Jordan Graham to level from the spot.

After Vadaine Oliver put Gillingham ahead on 44 minutes, O'Hora made amends with his first goal in senior football deep into first-half stoppage time, prodding home Grigg's cross.

Despite Connor Ogilvie going on to score a winner in the second period, O'Hora said he felt he owed the team his first senior goal after giving away the penalty.

"I feel like the goal cancelled out the handball," he said. "I didn't really celebrate, I said to the boys that was for the penalty, I wanted to get one back for the team.

"Of course, you should be happy with your first senior goal but obviously, the circumstances make it difficult, I was hoping to come away with three points."
