MK Dons will play fellow League 1 side Port Vale in the first round of the FA Cup.

Karl Robinson was hoping for a family affair and a draw against brother Craig’s Warrington Town side, but will instead face a trip to Vale Park.

Robert Page’s side have made a mediocre start to the season, finding themselves 16th in the table, but enjoyed a 3-0 win over Leyton Orient at the weekend.

Last time the sides met at Vale Park was on Good Friday this year, and Jordan Hughill’s second half strike earned the Valiants all three points over Dons.

The tie will be played on the weekend of November 7.
