Terry scores twice to inspire Chelsea comeback
Chelsea staged a late fightback to beat League Two minnows AFC Wimbledon 3-2 thanks to two goals from captain John Terry.
The Blues were down by two with 16 minutes to go – after being roughed up by 16st powerhouse Ade ‘The Beast’ Akinfenwa and outrun by the hungry stars of Wimbledon.
Nemanja Matic, Mohamed Salah and Kurt Zouma all started for a young Chelsea line-up that fell 2-0 behind before half-time courtesy of Alan Bennett’s opener after 38 seconds and Matt Tubbs’ penalty.
Terry was introduced at the interval and the centre-back scored two goals either side of Salah’s equaliser to seal a second pre-season victory for Jose Mourinho’s men.
