Russell Martin applauds the fans following their win over Lincoln earlier this season.

When MK Dons and Lincoln City met back in August, it was a wholly different occasion to the one which will face the sides at Sincil Bank tomorrow night.

At Stadium MK, Paul Tisdale's Dons claimed the three points in an end-to-end thriller against Danny Cowley's men, with both having come up from League Two with a head of steam and making a good fist of life in the third tier.

Looking back to the game in August, Russell Martin, who played in the game at Stadium MK, says Tuesday night's clash will be a very different affair given everything which has happened to both sides since.

"It will be a completely different game," he said. "They were really good when they played us here, and they probably went away disappointed not to get anything. I played in it, so I know how hard it was! I think the recent meetings have always been interesting and a decent fixtures, so hopefully this will be the same.

"It's a tough game, they're a team in transition with a new manager, a lot of new players too as he tries to change the way they play. It's not too dissimilar to us, but they had a bit of a better position to start.

"They're really good at home, so it will be tough but I'm really looking forward to it. I think we'll go into it full of confidence, and if we can do what we did on Saturday, we'll go there positive."
