FA Cup: MK Dons 0-1 Coventry highlights

Coventry City ensured at least one League Two side will be in the fifth round of the FA Cup after winning at League One MK Dons.

Maxime Biamou's second goal in as many games proved to be the difference.

The French forward put away from inside the six yard box after Marc McNulty's cross evaded the defence.

New MK Dons manager Dan Micciche saw his side create few chances, with Kieran Agard's miss from close range after an hour their only decent chance.

Having beaten Stoke City in the previous round, Coventry, who are sixth in League Two, once again disposed of a struggling higher division side.

Biamou forced a good save from Lee Nicholls midway through the first half, while the Dons' keeper did well to keep out McNulty's effort just before the break.

After Biamou's goal, it was the Sky Blues who looked more like to score as they delighted the 7,833 away fans who outnumbered their hosts' followers by almost 750 supporters.

Liam Kelly missed from inside the six-yard box after another cross from McNulty, while Ben Stevenson went close to extending the visitors' lead in stoppage time.
