AFC Wimbledon host Charlton Athletic in FA Cup second round draw

AFC Wimbledon have been paired with Charlton Athletic in the FA Cup second round draw – with the tie taking place at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.

The Addicks were 1-0 winners when the two clubs met last month with Ricky Holmes’ second-half free-kick securing the points.

Charlton manager Karl Robinson was the subject of a number of chants from the away end and commented on that post-match. He said: “Maybe if they give their team more support, they might have had more of the game,” said Robinson after the final whistle.

“I was quite happy. Keep having a go. That means their players aren’t getting any support, and the manager and the staff. Them having a go helped us. I’ll be the shield for this team. It really doesn’t bother me. I’m fat enough, stupid enough and ugly enough to take it. That’s my wife’s words by the way.

“I don’t care. I know people at MK Dons will be very happy with that result. I can go for a pint where I live tonight and they’ll be very happy. Most importantly I’m a Charlton man. I’m Charlton’s that’s it, nobody else’s. I throw myself into it.”

Charlton Athletic manager Karl Robinson is involved with an argument after he is alleged to have been abused by a member of AFC Wimbledon groundsman staff after full time in the away match last season

Robinson had security allocated to him for the game at the Dons’ home last season which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Wimbledon booked their place in the second round with a 1-0 win over Lincoln City – Lyle Taylor netting against the League Two club.

Ben Reeves, a former Milton Keynes player, scored twice against Truro City with Mark Marshall also on target in a 3-1 victory for Charlton.

The Addicks do not head to AFC Wimbledon in the league until March 3.
