Blackburn Rovers relegated to League 1

Blackburn Rovers have been relegated to League 1 despite winning at the weekend.

Blackburn were one of three teams who face the possibility of relegation with only Birmingham City with their destiny in their own hands. Birmingham knew a win would guarantee survival and won 1-0 away at Bristol City.

Both Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forrest were locked on 48 points only separated by goal difference.­ Nottingham Forrest knew they had to match the result of Blackburn and keep the goal difference swing to only 1 goal. Nottingham Forrest comfortably beat Ipswich Town 3-0 which meant that Blackburn had to win by 5 goals to survive, unfortunately they were only able to win 3-1 away at Brentford.
