Reds to face MK Dons in Cup

Manager Karl Robinson was left revelling in a 'dream' tie as MK Dons were drawn to face Manchester United at home in the second round of the Capital One Cup at the end of the month.

United had not been in the second-round draw of the competition for 19 years after two decades of almost unprecedented success but found themselves in the hat after failing to qualify for European competition last season.

The Dons had gone through on Tuesday evening with a 3-1 victory over fierce rivals AFC Wimbledon and will now be looking to replicate York, who eliminated United in their last second-round appearance in 1995. "We're ecstatic," Robinson said.
