The two clubs are set to meet in a highly charged FA Cup second-round clash this weekend, the first game between them since AFC were formed 10 years ago in response to Wimbledon's move to Milton Keynes.

"They asked us not to (go)," Robinson told the Football League podcast.

"That's what we've got to respect. They played at Morecambe at the weekend and (MK Dons scout) Alex Rae went down. We've watched DVDs and everything else and we've tried to do our job.

"We're a professional football club and we've got to rise above any negativity. I'm sure AFC Wimbledon want to do the same."

AFC Wimbledon have told BBC Sport that MK Dons staff were welcome at Kingsmeadow but suggested they should not wear club clothing. The club also expressed concern that Robinson's presence at the ground could prove inflammatory.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
