Carling Cup 3rd Round: MK Dons at Home!

Carling Cup 3rd Round: MK Dons at Home!

The Clarets face MK Dons at Turf Moor in the Carling Cup third round.

The draw was made this afternoon on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday.

The League 1 club are currently top of the table are will be no pushovers after knocking out Norwich City 4-0 at Carrow Road in Round Two.

The third round tie will be played sometime week commencing 19th September.

The last time we played MK Dons was during our brief sojourn in the Premier League. It was in the third round of the FA Cup at the Stadium:MK back in January 2010.

It was a routine 2-1 victory but it would also turn out to be the last game in charge for Owen Coyle. He was just embaking on his Judas project and was last seen disappearing down the tunnel on the pretence of flying up to Scotland to see his family thus refusing to give a post-match interview! The rest they say was history! Those were the days!!

Another home tie against lower league opposition. Atleist we have a great chance of getting to the last 16, where hopefully we can meet one of the big guns.
