A tie against MK Dons was the last fixture AFC Wimbledon wanted

MK Dons

AFC Wimbledon will travel to Milton Keynes Dons for a first-round Capital One Cup match in August.

When the draw was made on Tuesday morning it was certainly the clash that stood out and one that the neutrals may be excited about. However AFC Wimbledon fans won't be relishing the game.

Some may think it's a huge game against their rivals, bigger than a derby and it's a great chance to get one over on them. However AFC Wimbledon would rather not play MK Dons at all. Their fans still feel cheated when Milton Keynes occupied their club, stole their history and their league position whilst Wimbledon had to start from the very bottom.

They are now just a league apart and it might not be long before they are in the same division but for now Wimbledon fans are happy to be apart. MK Dons play at the creatively named Stadium MK, and despite it having a capacity of over 30,000 the average attendance is around the 8,500 mark.

Wimbledon fans will be in two minds about making the 120 mile round trip to Milton Keynes to sit in a predominantly empty stadium that was supposed to secure the club's future after they had been searching for a permanent ground for ages. However it could be a chance to gain a little bit of revenge over Pete Winkleman.

This won't be the first time the two teams have come face to face. In 2012 they played each other in the FA Cup and MK Dons won 2-1 with a last minute strike from Jon Otsemobor.  That match drew a crowd of 16,459.

However Wimbledon fans will still be in no mood to forgive history and enjoy a match of football with a side who ripped their history and their league position away from them. Losing to MK Dons isn't the reason that Wimbledon fans don't want to face Karl Robinson's side but because they don't believe they should exist, and they would hope they go out of business as soon as possible.

AFC Wimbledon don't want to be a bitter club constantly reminded of the past and the parting of ways in May 2002. Whilst they would like to continue their rise up the Football League many would hope to cross paths with MK Dons and hope they sink without trace and avoid being in the same league as them.
