After two weeks of build-up and anticipation, the biggest game in MK Dons’ history is upon us tonight.
Crowd records at stadium:mk are expected to be smashed by the Capital One Cup second round match against Manchester United, with an estimated 29,000 fans set to descend on MK1 for the hottest ticket in town.
Dons come into the game on the back of a frustrating 0-0 draw with Coventry City on Saturday - a game they had plenty of chances to win, while stifling their opponents. But the performance was full of promise for manager Karl Robinson, who couldn’t find fault with the way his side played - finishing aside.
United also drew at the weekend, sharing the points at the Stadium of Light against Sunderland in a 1-1 draw.
Louis van Gaal is still seeking his first win in English football since taking over at Old Trafford in the summer, having lost on the opening day of the season to Swansea.
Dons have David Martin and Danny Green fit once again, after the pair missed out on the last two games, but Lee Hodson is expected to spend a lengthy spell on the sidelines with ankle ligament damage, picked up against Chesterfield.
