DONS TO MEET UP AGAIN IN THE JPT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Sam El­liott

AFC WIM­BLE­DON will be hop­ing it’s third time lucky after be­ing drawn away to Mil­ton Keynes once again.

After meet­ing in the open­ing round of the Cap­i­tal One Cup last month, and fol­low­ing a ti­tanic first en­counter back in De­cem­ber 2012, the heated ri­vals will come to­gether once more in early Oc­to­ber in the Johnstone Paint Trophy.

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.
