Cometh the hour cometh the man, and Noni Madueke spared Chelsea’s blushes right on half time with a penalty equaliser against AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup.
The League Two visitors had gone ahead in the 19th minute from the spot, thanks to a questionable decision by the match official, and they’d held their lead until just before the break.
A stuttering run up from the spot gave Madueke a chance to allow the keeper to go early before placing his penalty beyond his reach to level the scores at Stamford Bridge.
