Blackburn’s Championship season continued with a win against Birmingham at Ewood Park on Tuesday.

The impressive Blackburn run at home of late continued, as Rovers reacted positively from the Burnley defeat, with a fourth successive home win secured with a two-nil win over Birmingham.

A 20th-minute finish from the Charlton loanee Tony Watt, as he scored his first league goal for us, put Blackburn ahead with that swiftly followed up by a second goal when Danny Graham got onto Jason Steele’s punt forward three-minutes later to wrap up the points.

This fourth successive home win (where they say the heart it afterall) means Rovers managed this for the first time in six long years!

These were the other results.

Wolves 2-1 Bristol City
Bolton 2-2 Ipswich

It couldn’t have been a better night for Burnley (three-two) really as they extended the lead at the top of the table with a win at Craven Cottage – the only disappointment would have been that Hull didn’t play, they lost but this was in the FA Cup against Arsenal….

Middlesbrough (one-nil) were always going to have a tough game against relegation battling Rotherham with the Millers stunning the visitors to the New York Stadium with a win that helps their survival chances but dented the Boro automatic bid with Brighton’s (nil-nil) also stalling slightly in a draw against play-off chasing Sheffield Wednesday at the Amex Stadium.

Of those looking to get into the play-offs, they didn’t really take advantage of the dropped points from Wednesday – defeats for Cardiff (two-nil) against Leeds at the Cardiff City Stadium, Preston (one-nil) losing at Nottingham Forest, Birmingham (two-nil) slipping to a recent rare defeat at Blackburn and Ipswich (two-two) being held at relegation threatened Bolton basically saw the status quo maintained.

At the bottom the big winners were, as we know, Rotherham but Charlton’s (nil-nil) draw with MK Dons has done very little to aid the Addicks’ chances of survival with that a point the visitors will be much happier with.
