Blackburn’s Championship season continued with a draw against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Tuesday.

Reacting quick to falling a goal behind from Blackburn meant we came away from Nottingham Forest with a point after a one-one draw.

A draw that all but guarantees survival for Rovers.

Dexter Blackstock’s had Forest ahead with 15-minutes played as he made the most of some poor play from Hope Akpan’s to beat Jason Steele, the Blackburn ‘keeper might think he could have got more on his attempted save too?

An equaliser came on 22-minutes though when Sunderland loanee Danny Graham, who put aside some recent injury doubts to play, chipped Dorus de Vries with Steele making a couple of saves to ensure our point to keep up nine-points clear of MK Dons but we’ve got a much, much better goal-difference so they’ll not be able to catch us now.

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

These were the other results.

Tuesday 19th April 2016
Birmingham 2-2 Preston
Brentford 2-1 Cardiff
Brighton 4-0 QPR
Bristol City 2-3 Derby
Burnley 1-1 Middlesbrough
Ipswich 1-1 Fulham
Leeds 2-1 Wolves
Nottm Forest 1-1 Blackburn
Rotherham 1-1 Huddersfield
Sheff Wed 0-0 MK Dons
Bolton 0-0 Charlton
Reading 1-2 Hull

The top two Burnley and Middlesbrough (one-one) played out a draw at Turf Moor leaving it as things were, with Boro the leaders but the three-way battle with Brighton (four-nil) ongoing with the Seagulls closing the gap on both with a win over QPR at the Amex Stadium.

Only two-points separate the top three!

Hull (two-one) and Derby (three-two) now know they’ll be in the play-offs with wins at Reading and Bristol City, respectively, with this defeat also leaving the Robins needing another point to ensure they avoid relegation.

Which (relegation) was confirmed for Charlton (nil-nil) after they drew with already relegated Bolton meaning both will do battle in League 1 next season.

MK Dons (nil-nil) are almost certain to join to join them with a draw at Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday just delaying the inevitable with Wednesday almost secure of a play-off place following Cardiff’s (two-one) defeat at Brentford.
