  1. Next up in the EFL...


    Six more Championship games will be played tomorrow, with Millwall v Middlesbrough first up at 15:00 BST.

    A league game at 3pm on a Wednesday?! I know - weird, innit?

    We'll have live text coverage of all six matches on the BBC Sport website and app, including West Brom's game against Derby.

    Hope you can join us then.

  2. 'We were a bit lethargic'

    FT: Reading 0-0 Huddersfield

    Reading manager Mark Bowen thought his team might have had a hangover from Saturday, when they beat Luton 5-0, as his side could not break the deadlock against Huddersfield.

    "We'll take the clean sheet and you always have to be happy with that but I thought we were lacking that bit of quality and ruthlessness in the final third.

    "Going into the last 15 minutes, we were flat and sloppy in our decision-making.

    "We didn't really do enough quality-wise in that final third to turn one point into three.

    "Maybe there was a bit of a hangover from Saturday as we were a bit lethargic. We cant take our foot off the pedal between now and the end of the season."

  3. 'It was a good performance with more attacking intent'

    FT: Reading 0-0 Huddersfield

    Time for a bit more reaction from the earlier games before we call it a night.

    Huddersfield came away from the Madejski Stadium with a point as they edged closer to safety, and manager Danny Cowley was pleased with his side's showing.

    "I thought it was a really good performance, it was a game where we had much more energy than we showed on Saturday, much more attacking intent.

    "We just lacked that little ruthless edge but to keep three consectutive clean sheets at this stage of the season in these circumstances is great credit to the efforts of everyone.

    "We're in touching distcance of the 50 points target, but we don't quite know if that's going to be enough. We're focused on the remianing four games and they're coming thick and fast."

  4. The top six

    How it stands

    Championship top six

    Sixth-placed Cardiff's defeat this evening means their cushion over the rest of the chasing pack remains at three points.

    Derby County, who are seventh, play West Bromwich Albion tomorrow.

    Wins for Brentford and Fulham earlier kept their hopes of a top-two finish alive, but Albion and leaders Leeds both have games in hand to be played over the next couple of days and are still favourites to take those automatic promotion spots.


    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Blackburn celebrate

    Blackburn hold on through a nervy period of stoppage time, and claim a result which blows the Championship play-off race wide open again.

    Rovers showed determination and class to come from 2-1 down at the break to win.

    Adam Armstrong's brilliant long-range strike clinched victory, ending Blackburn's three-match losing streak.

    Tony Mowbray's side are up to ninth in the table, and are five points behind Cardiff with four games to play.

  6. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Blackburn get a chance to wind the clock down for a few seconds as Lewis Travis is fouled.

    The visitors are taking their time over things, as you'd expect.

  7. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Into five minutes of added time.

    Cardiff sub Callum Paterson hurls another long throw into the Blackburn box but the home side get the ball away this time.

    The hosts are leaving plenty of players up in attack and are going direct now.

  8. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    It's the 89th minute and long throw time for Cardiff.

    Blackburn centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo rises to try to head it away but flicks the ball goalwards.

    The ball narrowly clears his own crossbar.

  9. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Blackburn winger Stewart Downing goes oh-so-close to adding a fourth.

    His free-kick from 30 yards out takes a nick off the defensive wall and goes just over the Cardiff bar.

  10. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Adam Armstrong

    Rovers are less than four minutes away from a massive three points.

    This result will keep their season alive, and make several other teams who are chasing the play-offs very happy as well.

    Adam Armstrong, who scored a sensational third for the visitors, is replaced by Sam Gallagher.

    Lewis Holtby comes on for Dominic Samuel.


    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Changes ahoy.

    Marlon Pack and Gavin Whyte come on for Cardiff, with Dion Sanderson and Junior Hoilett heading off.

    That's all five substitutions made by the Bluebirds.

  12. 'We've got to keep showing that fight'

    FT: Brentford 2-1 Charlton

    Charlton manager Lee Bowyer was full of praise of his players despite losing to a Brentford side who are chasing automatic promotion.

    "I'm proud of the players tonight, there's not many times you'll hear me say that when we lose a game.

    "But tonight you're playing against a top, top Brentford side who have been hammering teams left, right and centre, before the lockdown and after the lockdown, they're the in-form team in our division and we've just given them a right scare.

    "On another day we might have come away with something, but we've just got to keep showing that fight and I'm sure we'll be OK."

    Lee Bowyer
  13. CLOSE!

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Cardiff midfielder Joe Ralls shoots at goal from 25 yards out.

    He's looking to curl the ball into the bottom left-hand corner, but there isn't enough bend on his shot and it goes wide of the goal.

  14. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Second-half goals from Dominic Samuel and Adam Armstrong have turned this game on its head.

    Rovers will be five points behind sixth-placed Cardiff if they can hold on to this result.

    The Bluebirds have 10 minutes plus stoppages to find an equaliser. They have barely threatened since the break.

  15. 'This is a massive win'

    FT: Brentford 2-1 Charlton

    A dominant Brentford snatched all three points against Charlton after going a goal down, and Bees boss Thomas Frank knew how important the victory was as they made it six wins in a row for the first time at this level.

    "This is a massive win. I'll not stand here and say this didn't mean anything, it was a big win.

    "We know every game is a big win, but I just had a feeling because of all the circumstances, that this game would be very, very difficult.

    "They have a very good ability to compete against the best sides because they defend and they are very well fixed and they have a good structure."

  16. 'It's painful but it's not frustrating'

    FT: Luton 1-1 Barnsley

    A draw between the bottom two sides did little for either Luton or Barnsley in their respective survival bids, and Tykes boss Gerhard Struber was left disappointed with the result.

    "We deserved victory today. We had so many chances in the first half, three or four top chances but we didn't use them.

    "It's painful but it's not frustrating. We delivered today a big fight. That was our goal today.

    "In the end one point in our situation is not helpful and we need more. But we look forward and we'll fight until the last game."

  17. Post update

    Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    What response do Cardiff have now?

    The Welsh side are behind for the first time in the game, and this result will keep their play-off place in doubt.

    Manager Neil Harris brings on attacking trio Lee Tomlin, Callum Paterson and Danny Ward to freshen things up.

  18. GOAL: Cardiff 2-3 Blackburn

    Adam Armstrong (70 mins)

    Blackburn celebrate

    WHAT. A. GOAL.

    A loose square pass from Leandro Bacuna goes straight to Adam Armstrong.

    The Blackburn forward is five yards in front of the centre circle in the Cardiff half and spots keeper Alex Smithies off his line.

    He shoots first time and perfectly guides it into the empty net.

    Che Adams scored a similar strike for Southampton against Manchester City at the weekend. This one was from further out, and arguably better.


    Cardiff 2-2 Blackburn

    Blackburn make the first change of the game as Elliott Bennett replaces Joe Rankin-Costello in the left full-back position.

  20. Post update

    Cardiff 2-2 Blackburn

    Blackburn skipper Darragh Lenihan gets his head on a Stewart Downing free-kick which is delivered deep to the back post.

    The ball bobbles into the side-netting and Cardiff keeper Alex Smithies is not troubled.

    We are midway through the second half, and it's time for some drinks.

    No doubt that Rovers have been the better side since the break.
