The Dons, who will play a division above rivals MK Dons for the first time this season, avoided the drop by just three points under Neal Ardley last term and will be keen to aim a little higher going into the new campaign.
Ardley’s side will host newly promoted Coventry City in their first home game of the season, while relegated Sunderland, under the guise of new manager Jack Ross, visit in late August.
Boxing Day brings Plymouth Argyle to the Dons while trips to Luton and Bradford, either side of a home clash against Wycombe Wanderers, make up their final three games.
Before then, though, they face Premier League Brighton in a pre-season friendly and Ardley has the difficult task of improving the squad on one of the smallest budgets in the division.
“How many we’ll need I don’t know,” Ardley said in May. “I found last season’s transfer window very difficult because you’re trying to raise the standards for a better quality of player but without the funds to do it. It was a bit tougher maybe than it was in League Two but we’ve already started our research and we’ll keep trying to get it right.”
