Wombles 4-1 to come through grudge match

AFC WIMBLEDON finally have the chance to get one over on MK Dons when the teams meet in a televised FA Cup second-round tie at Stadium:mk on December 2, but bookmakers are confident they will come up short.

The fixture was assured after MK Dons won 6-1 at home to Cambridge City on Tuesday.

However, Hills make the Wombles the 4-1 outsiders to progress, while MK Dons are 1-3 to win in 90 minutes.

Wimbledon chairman Erik Samuelson has hinted the frosty relationship between the clubs could be improved if Milton Keynes were to drop ‘Dons' from their name but Hills offer 50-1 about that happening this term.

SFL chiefs have proposed a new three-tier structure of 16, ten and 16 teams for the start of the 2014-15 season but the plan must now garner support from SPL clubs and the Scottish FA.

FA Cup second-round draw: Preston v Gillingham, Bury v Southend, Sheffield United v Port Vale, Carlisle v Bournemouth, Crewe v Burton or Altrincham, Bradford v Brentford, Luton v Dorchester, Alfreton v Gloucester or Leyton Orient, Oldham v Doncaster, Tranmere v Chesterfield, Rotherham v Notts County, Cheltenham v Hereford, Barrow v Macclesfield, Accrington v Oxford United, Lincoln v Mansfield, Harrogate v Hastings, Coventry v Morecambe, Crawley v Chelmsford, Fleetwood v Aldershot, MK Dons v AFC Wimbledon.

Match in Focus

19:30 Fr 28Oct BT2

Mgladbach v E Frankfurt

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Gladbach have won ten and drawn the other of their last 11 home league games
Expert verdict
Gladbach have lost only once at home in the league in over a year - and that was against Borussia Dortmund - and did the double over Frankfurt last term to the tune of an 8-1 aggregate. Frankfurt have won two of four away games, but those were against backmarkers Ingolstadt and Hamburg, and this is a far tougher test.
