Karl Robinson will give the young players at Dons a chance to impress against Northampton in the League Cup. Milton Keynes boss is set to give the likes of Tom Flanagan(21y old), Ben Reeves(21y old) and Dele Ali(17y old)  run outs in the first round tie at Sixfields on Tuesday night.
"I will make a couple of changes. I want to give some of the kids another chance but I'm still going to put out a team that I feel is capable of winning the game," Robinson told the club's official website.

Leyton Orient - Coventry

Leyton without Nathan Clarke(df)
Coventry because of financial problems and transfer embargo have to use youngsters (because all key players left team). http://thebest22.blogabet.com/4160521/Crawley-Town-Coventry (i wrote about that in first round). No injuries or suspensions in Coventry's team.

Charlton - Oxford 

Charlton wiithout Bradley Pritchard(mf 1/0). Powell (Charlton's coach) has hinted he may rest a number of his senior players with one eye already on a return to league action against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Oxford boss Chris Wilder will name a strong line-up at Charlton as his U's side looks to build on a memorable opening day victory.

Birmingham - Plymouth

Manager Lee Clark plans to make a few changes for Birmingham's Capital One Cup first-round clash at home to Plymouth but will still keep a strong side. Nikola Zigic (back), Mitch Hancox and Darren Ambrose (both groin) remain doubts, while long-term absentees David Murphy (knee), Jonathan Spector (fractured cheekbone) and Will Packwood (broken leg) are unavailable.

  1. aik wont rotate the team http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/fotboll/sverige/allsvenskan/aik/article17247143.ab. the coach said that they haven´t had a lot of games so fatigue shouldnt be a problem.
