Leicester will play MK Dons in the next round of the Carabao Cup. We have made a dive into the archives to try to bring forward most players in both camps.

David Martin is of course one to count. The goalkeeper is back at MK Dons for his second spell, this time also hired in as a goalkeeper coach. We all know his presence at Leicester during the 08/09 season being the one with most games among six different goalkeepers that season.

Nigel Martin appeared 25 times in League One action. The other goalkeepers with league games were Tony Warner, Carl Pentney, Mark Bunn, Paul Henderson and David Stockdale.

Dietmar Hamann was a player at MK Dons, his last club in football, He added up 12 league appearances as well as being their coach, later moving to Leicester to rejoin his former coach Sven Goran Eriksson from the days at Man City. He left Leicester after a short period taking over the manager seat at Stockport County.

Jonny Hayes spent time on loan at MK Dons during his days at Reading. He joined Leicester in 2007 playing only 7 league games before moving north and joining Aberdeen. He later played for Celtic and returned to Aberdeen in 2020.

Stephen Hughes joined Leicester from Rangers. After his spell at Leicester from 2007 to 2009 he had spells at Motherwell, Norwich and MK Dons (on loan). 91 league games and 7 goals for Leicester, only 6 for MK Dons. The one cap Scotland wonder ended his career Dundee in 2014.

Matthew Upson joined MK Dons from Leicester in 2015, he had brief spells in both camps as the former England international played 5 times in blue and 3 times in white. Upson spent his best years in football with West Ham, Arsenal and Birmingham.

Harvey Barnes is of course on not to forget as he had his first loan spell there in 2017, playing 21 league games and scoring 6 goals, making a huge impression, must be special to go back here.
