    Milton Keynes Dons have been drawn against Leyton Orient in the Round of 32 of the Papa John's Trophy.

    The Dons progressed through to the knockout stages of the competition after claiming victories over Burton Albion and Wycombe Wanderers in Southern Group C, ultimately finishing as runners-up behind Aston Villa Under-21s.

    This meant that Liam Manning's side, who were placed into Draw B, had to face a group winner in an away match in the next round, with Exeter City, Swindon Town and Cambridge United the other possibilities.

    As a result of the draw, the Dons will now travel to Brisbane Road in the week commencing November 29th, seeking to progress further in a competition the club won back in the successful 2007/08 season.

    The last time the two sides faced each other saw the Dons run out as 2-1 winners in August 2015 in the first round of the League Cup, with Carl Baker and an own goal from future Don Mathieu Baudry seeing the Dons through to the next round.
