Capital One Cup: Sunderland v MK Dons match preview
A look ahead to tonight’s Capital One Cup second round fixture at the Stadium of Light
Tuesday 27 August 2013
Sunderland play host to League One side MK Dons in a reverse fixture of the Capital One Cup third round tie last season. Sunderland won that game despite playing over half of it with ten-men after Lee Cattermole’s red card but the Dons will face a much changed Sunderland side this time round which has seen a host of new recruitments over the summer.
Manager Paolo Di Canio is expected to rotate his Sunderland side and his opposite number Karl Robinson, who used their first round victory over Northampton to give a chance to some younger players, could do the same.
KICK-OFF: Tuesday, 7.45pm
MK Dons 0 Sunderland 2 (Gardner, McClean), FA Cup, September 2012
Sunderland have now gone six league games without a win.
MK Dons have made it to the third round of the League Cup for the last three seasons.
