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.
