On the other hand, AFC Wimbledon pulled off an upset in the first round by beating Coventry City 2-1. Meanwhile, they are unbeaten after the first five games in EFL League Two thus far this term. Johnnie Jackson’s men have won just two games while playing out three stalemates to sit fifth on the table.
