Ten Milton Keynes Dons players managed to find themselves stuck together in a broken-down lift and needing to get out.
Paul Tisdale’s side were staying at a hotel in Wales ahead of a League Two clash with Newport County on Saturday that was eventually postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Rodney Parade caused by Storm Deirdre.
Huddled together in cramp conditions, the group published a series of videos of what was happening in the lift that have been compiled together in this clip.

In rising heat, someone was able to write the word ‘help’ with their finger in the condensation that had formed on the metal.
The team felt like they were losing air and, after becoming frustrated with how long assistance was taking to arrive, began attempts to prise the elevator doors open.
Joy is unconfined as the team eventually release themselves and rejoin their MK Dons teammates on the other side.
