Blackburn’s Championship season continued with a draw against Bristol City at Ewood Park on Saturday.

A Danny Graham brace (after the Sunderland loanee had previously put Blackburn ahead with this lead lost) saw Rovers to a two-two draw with Bristol City.

Graham had Blackburn ahead at half time with his fifth-goal for Rovers on 17-minutes enough for this lead at the interval.

Jonathan Kodjia came off the bench to equalise with 70-minutes played then four-minutes later Aaron Wilbraham had Bristol City ahead.

10-minutes from time Graham headed an equaliser with Bristol City finishing with 10-men when Korey Smith was sent off with both clubs retaining a Championship place with Rovers in 18th a couple of places ahead of the visitors on goal-difference.

Here’s a round up of the Championship action from the other games played in midweek….

These were the other results.

Friday 22nd April 2016
Preston 0-1 Burnley

Saturday 23rd April 2016
Derby 1-1 Sheff Wed
Blackburn 2-2 Bristol City
Cardiff 2-1 Bolton
Charlton 1-3 Brighton
Fulham 1-3 Nottm Forest
Huddersfield 1-1 Birmingham
Hull 2-2 Leeds
Middlesbrough 0-0 Ipswich
MK Dons 1-4 Brentford
QPR 1-1 Reading
Wolves 0-0 Rotherham

Burnley (one-nil) beat Lancashire rival Preston on Friday to move back to the top of the table with Middlesbrough’s (nil-nil) draw with Ipswich at the Riverside keeping the Clarets at the top of the Championship table.

This title is now in Burnley’s hands, however only goal-difference separates the top three!

Brighton’s (three-one) win at already relegated Charlton sees it a three-way tie at the top but the current leaders are now the favourites for the title (certainly to finish in the top two) with Boro and Albion still to play each other.

MK Dons’ (four-one) defeat to Brentford saw them fill the final relegation spot, which was highly probable anyway but now officially confirmed with a season-long stay in the Championship over.

Automatic promotion is going all the way, the play-offs are nearly sorted out now.

Cardiff (two-one) still have an outside hope of finishing in these play-offs after beating Bolton but Sheffield Wednesday’s (one-one) draw at Derby leaves the Owls on the verge of a top six finish but not yet assured of this.
