MK Dons will take on holders Wigan Athletic in the third round of the FA Cup.

Dons booked their place in the third round with a 1-0 win over Dover Athletic on Saturday, courtesy of Ben Reeves’ 51st minute strike at stadium:mk.

Championship side Wigan were relegated from the Premier League last season, but a late Ben Watson goal at Wembley saw them overcome Manchester City to lift the famous trophy.

The game, to be played at the DW Stadium, will take place on the weekend of January 4/5, 2014.
