Lyle Taylor has praised AFC Wimbledon’s players for beating the drop from League One.
The former Dons fans’ favourite moved to Charlton Athletic in the summer.
And Taylor admits his old club produced an unbelievable turnaround. A 0-0 draw at Bradford City on Saturday ensured the South London club stayed up.
Taylor said: “Fair play to them.
“They’ve stuck at it and they’ve grafted and they’ve grafted. It’s a credit to the boys they’ve managed to stay up.
“I’d extend my best wishes to them and say ‘well done’. Because what they achieved was nigh-on impossible four-five months ago.”
