The clash was originally scheduled to take place in its usual midweek evening slot during the week commencing Monday August 13 but, with the approval of the Football League, it will now kick-off at 3pm.

It provides both Cheltenham and MK Dons with a full week to prepare for the opening of their respective league seasons a week later on Saturday August 18.

The tie will take place at the same time as the Olympic football men's gold medal match at Wembley, but officials from both clubs are confident the fixture will still attract a big crowd at Whaddon Road.

The two sides met in the first round of the competition last year, with MK Dons running out 4-1 winners.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
