Maxime Biamou's second-half winner saw 1987 FA Cup winners Coventry cause a minor upset and progress into the fifth round with a 1-0 win over League One strugglers MK Dons.
Fast becoming one of this season's memorable FA Cup stories, the Sky Blues saw off Premier League Stoke to make it to this stage and they were backed by almost 8,000 travelling supporters here.
Mark Robins' side started on the front foot and went close after 23 minutes when Biamou's powerful drive forced Dons keeper Lee Nicholls into a testing save.
Coventry winger Tom Bayliss was next to threaten an opener shortly after half-time when he cut inside onto his right foot but fired agonisingly wide.
The visitors did snatch the winner just after the hour through Biamou's third goal of the season, and his second in as many games.
Ethan Ebanks-Landell failed to clear his lines for MK and the French forward gleefully poked in from close range to put Coventry into the fifth round for the first time in nine years.
Dan Micciche (MK Dons): "There won't be any knee-jerk reactions - I'm a very calm and considered coach and there were a lot of encouraging signs. All goals are disappointing to concede but of course we'll have a look at it - the players are only human and these mistakes can happen to anyone."
Mark Robins (Coventry): "Our fans deserve enormous credit because they've got behind the team and made it an unbelievable atmosphere. It's exactly what we've come to expect from our supporters because they never let us down - it's brilliant for everybody and you can see what it means to them."
