Blackburn’s Championship season continued with a one-nil defeat to Bolton at the Macron Stadium on Monday.

Typically the side to end the 17-match winless run Bolton had been on were Blackburn as Rovers were beaten by their Lancashire rivals on Bank Holiday Monday to make it back-to-back Championship defeats.

Gary Madine scored the winner when he volleyed home 13-minutes from time, that after Madine already had an effort cleared off the line by Marcus Olsson with Zach Clough also hitting the post. Blackburn would have earned a late point had Tom Lawrence’s (goal bound effort) not been deflected onto the post.

These were the other results.

Monday 28th December 2015
Bolton 1-0 Blackburn
Birmingham 1-0 MK Dons
Burnley 4-0 Bristol City
Charlton 0-2 Wolves
Preston 1-0 Hull
QPR 1-1 Huddersfield
Reading 1-2 Brentford
Middlesbrough 1-0 Sheff Wed

These games are to be played.

Tuesday 29th December 2015
Brighton v Ipswich 19:45
Cardiff v Nottm Forest 19:45
Fulham v Rotherham 19:45
Leeds v Derby 19:45

Some interesting results (so far) with these the probable stand out ones.

Middlesbrough end the year top of the Championship table with a one-nil win over Sheffield Wednesday at the Riverside Stadium.

Burnley’s promotion bid got a boost with a four-nil win over Bristol City at Turf Moor whereas Hull (who beat Burnley convincingly on Boxing Day) slumped to another disappointing defeat losing one-nil at Deepdale against Preston.

A play-off push remains very much in the sights of Brentford with the Bees ending the year with a two-one win at Reading.
