History is being made today as the two clubs formed after Wimbledon FC left London, meet for the first time.

Milton Keynes Dons, the side created after the original Wimbledon moved to Buckinghamshire, take on AFC Wimbledon - a team formed by fans disgruntled about that switch. 

AFC are managed by Neil Ardley, who played for Wimbledon FC. 

He says the whole affair is very unfortunate: "It's a disappointment that the club I played for, the club I used to train at from the age of 10, the history was taken away."

"It's quite hard to take as a player and quite a disappointment." 

John Brockwell, chairman of the MK Dons Supporters Association says a draw would not be a desirable outcome: "It will be a worse game in some cases, because we'll be going onto their patch as it were."

"If we were to go on their patch, I'm not sure they would appreciate that."

AFC Wimbledon look set to be underdogs in the second round FA Cup clash.
