MK Dons go into their FA Cup third round game with Premier League Burnley as heavy underdogs.

Dons head to Turf Moor for the third time in their history, but it is not the first time the sides have met in the third round. The sides crossed paths in 2010 too, with Burnley coming out on top at Stadium MK with a 2-1 win. In four meetings in all competitions, Burnley have won all four, with both games at Turf Moor ending with 2-1 wins to the Clarets.

Russell Martin's side head into the game though with back-to-back wins, having seen off Bristol Rovers and Swindon Town in their last two outings as they have distanced themselves from the League One drop zone, sitting 16th in the table.

Burnley too sit 16th in the Premier League, having lost just one game in their last five in the top flight as they escaped the bottom three.

Dons haven't been in the third round stage of the FA Cup since 2017/18. Under Robbie Neilson, they were 1-0 winners over QPR at Loftus Road, booking their fourth round spot when Ouss Cisse struck on the hour mark.

They made it to the third round this year after beating National League sides Eastleigh and Barnet in the first two rounds.

Jonathan Moss will take charge of the game. It will be his 13th game in charge this season. He has dished out 33 yellow cards so far. Marc Perry and Harry Lennard will run the lines, with fourth official Geoff Eltringham, and VAR referee will be Anthony Taylor.

Bookmakers have Burnley at 8/15 to win, Dons at 9/2 and 10/3 the draw at 90 minutes.
