Striker Alan Smith will once again take charge of a MK Dons XI this evening, for the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup semi final clash with Beaconsfield SYCOB.

The Dons will travel to Holloways Park looking to book a place in the final of the County Cup, having seen off non-League Aylesbury FC in the quarter finals in December.

Goals from Daniel Powell, Charlie MacDonald and a brace from youngster Giorgio Rasulo helped see the men from MK1 through the last stage of the competition and manager for the night Smith is expected to name another strong team for tonight’s meeting with the South Bucks side.

Striker Izale McLeod is in line to get a run out after being cup-tied for the defeat to Barnsley on the weekend, while fellow front-man Ryan Lowe will also make the trip to Windsor Road having missed the past three matches through suspension.

Antony Kay is another expected to be involved as well as Mathias Kouo-Doumbe, while duo Tom Flanagan and George Baldock could make their first Dons appearances of the season. Youngsters Dele Alli, Mason Spence, Brendan Galloway, Charlie Burns and Jon Osae are also included in the squad.

Beaconsfield SYCOB made it through to the semi finals with a 4-2 victory over Hungerford Town having seen off Burnham in the first round. The Rams currently lie seven points off top spot in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One and are unbeaten in their last four games, with James Pritchard’s side on course for a play-off finish.

Kick-off this evening is scheduled for 7.45pm and tickets are available on the gate and priced at £8 for adults, £4 for OAPs and £1 for under-16s.

The clubhouse, which will open at 6pm, has a fully stocked bar and catering facilities are also available. The turnstiles will open at 6.45pm. 

There will be parking available at the ground and in the road leading to the ground. Additionally car parking is available at the motorway service station over the other side of the dual carriageway. 

This will mean a 10 minute walk back across the dual carriageway to the ground. The ground address is as follows: Holloways Park, Windsor Road, Beaconsfield, Bucks HP9 2SE.
