The last time the sides met was in the FA Cup back in January 2014, in an FA Cup third round replay which saw the Latics leave Stadium MK with a 3-1 win after extra time.

Dons' first away trip of the campaign will see them travel to Bloomfield Road to take on Blackpool, another new team to League 1, having secured promotion from League 2 last term.

The most exciting month of the season looks to be September, with Oxford at home, away trips to Peterborough and AFC Wimbledon before hosting Northampton in the space of 24 days.

Over the festive period, Dons are at home to Plymouth on Boxing Day, host Peterborough on December 30 before travelling to Oxford on New Year's Day. AFC Wimbledon return to Stadium MK on January 13.

Dons end the season with a tough run of fixtures, hosting Blackburn Rovers, visiting Wigan before welcoming Doncaster Rovers, heading to Rootshall to take on Southend before finishing the season at home to Scunthorpe.
