Coventry City 1-1 Milton Keynes Dons

Coventry had to settle for a draw against MK Dons despite the Sky Blues flying out of the traps with Sam McCallum's long-range effort in the first minute.

The early goal saw Coventry take control when McCallum's left-footed half-volley rifled past Lee Nicholls in the Dons goal.

Coventry had two chances in quick succession to double their lead after 68 minutes.

However, Nicholls was alert to deny both Matty Godden and Maxime Biamou.

The away side punished Coventry's wastefulness when they eventually equalised via new loan signing Carlton Morris on 75 minutes.

Sam Nombe's cross from the right was not cleared properly by the Coventry defence and substitute Morris latched onto a loose ball to slam home a debut goal past Marko Marosi.
