West Ham Utd face a trip to Wimbledon in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

The south west London club, who made their way back up the league pyramid after the original club was moved to Milton Keynes and renamed as MK Dons will face West Ham for the first time since the phoenix club was formed by supporters in 2002.

Prior to the original Wimbledon FC being renamed and moved, the two clubs had met on 27 occasions with West Ham winning 11 to the Dons 8, with the remaining 8 matches ending in draws.

United's biggest win over Wimbledon came in an FA Cup replay in March 1985, a game in which John Lyall's side ran out 5-1 winners having drawn the original tie 1-1 at Plough Lane, the club's former home. Goalscorers on that day were Paul Allen, Alan Dcikens and hat-trick hero Tony Cottee.

The League One side, who currently play at Kingsmeadow will host West Ham in the week commencing Monday 27 August.
