    FT: Bristol City 4-1 Blackburn

    Bristol City celebrate

    That confident victory for Bristol City lifts them up to sixth in the Championship table for the international break.

    Blackburn were ultimately disappointing, despite taking an early lead at Ashton Gate.

    That concludes today's Championship action, after a 1-1 draw earlier between rivals Ipswich and Norwich at Portman Road.

    Thanks for joining us. Until next time, goodbye.


    Bristol City 4-1 Blackburn

    Blackburn's unbeaten start to the season comes to an end, as Bristol City earn their third in in a row in emphatic fashion.

    There was only one team in it after half-time.

    Marlon Pack

    Marlon Pack

    This game is well and truly over now! The hosts have come from behind to lead 4-1.

    After two successive corners, a second-phase ball is clipped towards Marlon Pack, who heads in at the far post.

    There was a suspicion of offside but the officials seem satisfied. The home fans are VERY satisfied. Job done.

    Blackburn substitute Joe Rothwell runs with the ball from deep in midfield to create a shooting opportunity for himself from outside the area, but it's a relatively tame strike and doesn't trouble the keeper.
