Coventry City boosted their hopes of surviving in League One with a shock victory over promotion-chasing MK Dons at the Ricoh Arena.
The Sky Blues, who sacked Steven Pressley as manager this week, went ahead in the ninth minute through Forest Green Rovers loanee Chris Stokes before Dominic Samuel doubled their advantage soon after.

Goals from Paul Huntingdon, Daniel Johnson, Joe Garner and Jermaine Beckford saw Simon Grayson's side move level on points with the Buckinghamshire club and ahead of Swindon Town, who were held to a draw by Crewe Alexandra.
Leaders Bristol City also took the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the table as Aaron Wilbraham scored his first goal at Ashton Gate since August, and his 14th of the season, as the Robins beat Rochdale.
In a fierce battle to reach the playoffs, fifth-placed Sheffield United missed the chance to put daylight between themselves and the chasing pack after they needed a late Marc McNulty penalty to rescue a point at Crawley Town.
