Neal Ardley has played down AFC Wimbledon’s possible FA Cup meeting with bitter rivals MK Dons.

MK Dons will host AFC Wimbledon in the second round if they can see off non-league Cambridge City in tonight’s first round replay.

AFC Wimbledon secured their passage to the second round after they beat York City 4-3 after extra-time in their own replay last night.

Manager Ardley told BBC London 94.9: “We’re in the second round and it’s great for the club. We don’t know who we’re going to get yet.

“People talk about ties before they happen. At the moment it couldn’t be further from my mind.”

“I haven’t given it a thought. I know it’s a boring answer, but I’m not going to disrespect Cambridge City.”

He continued: “I’d play against anyone.

“Obviously against MK Dons we’d be massive underdogs.

“As players and staff, all we can be is really professional no matter who we play against.

“We’d just like to get to the third round and give all the fans a cup tie that might bring in a couple of pounds and ease the pressure.”
