30 August 2012

MK Dons have been drawn at home to Premier League side Sunderland in the third round of the Capital One Cup.


Martin O'Neill's Blackcats will come up against the Dons for the first ever clash between the two sides. The Stadium of Light outfit have spent well in the summer recruiting the likes of Steven Fletcher, Adam Johnson and former Manchester United and Everton striker Louis Saha.

The Dons booked their place in the third round of the competition, for the third time in as many years, with an impressive 2-1 win over Championship side Blackburn Rovers. While O'Neil's side recorded a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Morecambe. 

The fixture will take place the week commencing 24th September. Confirmation of the date and ticket details will be announced in due course.
