The Dons have confirmed that the higher demand means there is a limited availability in a number of sections of the stadium, although tickets for where remains will be on sale right up until kick-off.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Brighton confirmed they had sold over 6,500 tickets away end tickets, with only 600 remaining. They have additionally confirmed they will not be selling tickets on the gate at the match.
