DONS TO MEET UP AGAIN IN THE JPT
AFC WIMBLEDON will be hoping it’s third time lucky after being drawn away to Milton Keynes once again.

Neal Ardley’s side will be keen to redress the balance in the third meeting at stadium:mk in a month.
Elsewhere, high-flying League Two side Burton Albion entertain Doncaster Rovers with the Brewers looking to reach Wembley for the second time in ten months.
Leyton Orient travel to Dagenham & Redbridge while Luton, effectively holders on the Football League Trophy after being relegated as winners back in 2009, want to ‘defend’ their title – they host former Conference foes Crawley Town.
League Two strong starters Morecambe and Bury clash at Gigg Lane, while Sheffield United will want to avoid an upset at Hartlepool United.
