Rotherham boosted their League One play-off hopes after coming from behind to beat MK Dons 2-1.
The Millers struck twice inside 10 first-half minutes to secure only their second win in 10 League One matches.
Chuks Aneke got the visitors off to a flyer when he curled home a free-kick from 23 yards after nine minutes.
But the Millers levelled after 20 minutes when Semi Ajayi beat a dithering Lee Nicholls to a knock down after Will Vaulks' long throw caused confusion.
The comeback was complete nine minutes later when Vaulks smashed an unstoppable effort into the top corner from long range.
Nicholls produced a stunning reaction save two minutes after the restart to keep out Jerry Yates, before David Ball had a goalbound effort blocked as the Millers pushed for a decisive third.
Aneke should have levelled after 74 minutes when he directed a free header straight at Marek Rodak but the Millers held on.
