MK Dons will begin their 2021/22 season at the University of Bolton Stadium to take non newly promoted Bolton Wanderers in an extremely tough start to the campaign.

Dons will discover their Carabao Cup opponents at around 3:40pm this afternoon (Thursday) which is likely to be their second fixture of the season, before taking on Sunderland and Charlton at home, hitting the road again to play Ipswich Town before rounding out the month at home to Accrington Stanley.

Russell Martin's side will lock horns with Wycombe Wanderers again on September 25 at Stadium MK, with a trip to Adams Park in late January (Jan 29), while AFC Wimbledon will visit Milton Keynes on October 9. The fixture at Plough Lane is scheduled for April 9 - four games before the end of the season.

Dons will be on the road to Lincoln City on Boxing Day, though will play Cheltenham on Dec 29 and bring in the new year against Gillingham - both games at Stadium MK.

The final game of the season will also be the longest trip of the season as they take on Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.
