MK Dons will make the short journey up the M1 to take on Northampton Town in the FA Cup third round.

Dons last played Cobblers in 2013, taking them on in both the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and League Cup competitions, with Karl Robinson’s side coming out on top on both occasions.

League 2 side Northampton have endured a tough time of late with financial problems rocking the club, and they narrowly avoided embarrassment on Saturday in the FA Cup second round when they trailed Northwich Victoria 2-0 at Sixfields before turning it around to win 3-2 and put their name into the third round hat.

All third round ties will be played between January 8 and 11, 2016.
