Premier League outfit Southampton travel to Stadium:MK looking to avoid an upset and progress to the next round.
MK Dons manager Karl Robinson shockingly admitted that he is focused on his side’s tie against Derby on Saturday, and he is expected to rotate his squad to avoid further injuries.
New signing Nicky Maynard may be available to make his debut, should he receive clearance in time. Their are no new injuries problems for the Liverpudlian.
The Dons have struggled to adapt to life in the Championship and currently sit 20th in the league table with two wins, one draw and five defeats. They have lost four games in a row but Robinson is expected to be more focused on getting a result on Saturday.
Like MK Dons, Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has no new injury worries but he is still without left-back Ryan Bertrand and defensive midfielder Jordy Clasie who are out with ankle and knee injuries respectively.
The Saints have had a difficult start to the season and have won just one of their opening six league games. They lost at home to Manchester United last weekend and they will be hoping to bounce back with a victory to send them into the next round of the Capital One Cup.
