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.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
