MK DONS have a good chance of being drawn against AFC Wimbledon in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy first round.

The two clubs will be picked from the Southern Section East pot, with the draw taking place on Saturday, August 18. Also in the draw are Stevenage, Crawley Town, Dagenham & Redbridge, Gillingham, Northampton Town and Southend United.

Dons and AFC Wimbledon came close to meeting for the first time in the FA Cup during the 2010/11 season, but Dons lost their first round replay at home to Stevenage who went on to meet the Kingston upon Thames-based side after they saw off Ebbsfleet.
