MK Dons could face AFC Wimbledon

The FA Cup second-round draw has thrown up a potential meeting

between MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon, the breakaway team formed after

the original Wimbledon was allowed to relocate to Milton

Keynes.

Both sides must first contest first-round replays, with AFC

facing Ebbsfleet and MK Dons taking on Stevenage.

AFC Wimbledon was established in 2002 when 1988 FA Cup winner

Wimbledon Football Club – nicknamed the Dons – was allowed to move

50 miles (80 kilometers) north from its original base and change

names.

AFC would have home advantage for a meeting with MK Dons at its

Kingsmeadow ground later this month.

But AFC hopes the situation doesn’t transpire, saying in a

statement that it would be a “very painful” match.
