Ground sold out, MK resting players, I think we're in with a chance here.

2-1 Town

Isn't posting cup match threads in the League 2 section a banable offence?

Disappointed to draw that. Deserved to win, and would have done but for a late deflected goal. Don't really fancy a replay, but we were excellent today and MK have got out of jail. Turned it round fantastically in the second half, two Holmes goals putting us deservedly in front, he's such a good player at this level. We're in the draw but I doubt we will be in the fourth round.

Congrats to MK as well, possibly the quietest set of fans to show up at Sixfields this year.

Pretty annoying. That said, in terms of distance it is a derby I guess.

They're such a plastic club with plastic fans, I know that's the typical comment but it's true. Their fans were so embarrassing today.

I truly hate MK Dons, because of what they represent though, not because of them being a local rival.

Should of beaten mk really. They tried to pass it out from the bank but kept giving it away because of our high pressing.

Not sure I fancy us to win the replay but always a chance I guess.

Also to any mk followers (not really fans) if you are going to let off a smoke bomb, don't have one in the colour of the home team..

I consider a Derby to be a game against rivals, not just a local team. You can buy a club but not history. Maybe in 100 years it might be seen differently but never in my life time will that be the case. Our rivals will always be the Pish

Yep agreed Luton Cob.

315 tickets sold for the replay after an hour and a half of sale, should clear 1,500.

1,000 sold. Draw a big club in the 4th round draw and that following is going to go through the roof.

"Should clear 1,500". Good prediction Eric! We've now sold 4,250 for the replay, and according to the official Twitter sales are speeding up. Maybe asking for even more than 6,000!
