With what turned out to be an extremely successful summer transfer window, manager Karl Robinson signed forwards Benik Afobe and Will Grigg on loan from Arsenal and Brentford respectively, as well as former loanee Samir Carruthers from Aston Villa on a permanent deal. Centre-back Kyle McFadzean was also brought in from Crawley Town.
   Following a 3–1 home victory over AFC Wimbledon in the first round of the League Cup, the club were handed a lucrative second round draw at home to Manchester United.  Against all the odds, the Dons won the tie 4–0 through goals from Grigg and Afobe against a United team which included David de Gea, Javier Hernandez, Shinji Kagawa and Danny Welbeck.
   The result set the tone for the remainder of the season. The Dons spent the majority of the year in promotion contention and achieved several notable victories including a record 7–0 home win over Oldham Athletic, a 6–0 home win over Colchester United and 6–1 home wins over both Crewe Alexandra and Leyton Orient . In January Academy graduate and future England star Dele Alli was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for a club record fee in the region of £5 million plus add-on incentives and arrangements which included Alli being loaned back immediately for the remainder of the campaign.
   For the final few weeks of the season, the club were in competition with Preston North End and
Swindon Town for second place (the final automatic promotion spot).
   With a considerable points gap to claw back, the Dons gained 25 points from a possible 27 to ensure the battle for promotion came down to the final day.
   With Preston in second place on 89 points and the Dons third on 88, Preston faced relegation-threatened Colchester United and only needed to match the Dons’ result to ensure promotion.
   The Dons went on to defeat Yeovil 5–1 but Preston lost 1-0 and the Dons secured second, achieving promotion to the second tier for the first time since their formation in 2004 along with a club record goal tally of 101 league goals
