Blackburn Rovers book Championship return

24 April 2018

Blackburn Rovers have been promoted from Sky Bet League One, following a 1-0 win at Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night.

It was fitting that captain Charlie Mulgrew netted the goal to seal an immediate return to the second tier, converting a corner from League One Player of the Season, Bradley Back.

The result leaves Tony Mowbray’s men seven points clear of Shrewsbury Town with two games remaining, and a point behind Wigan Athletic as the race for the League One title looks set to go down to the wire.

As for the Shrews, they will join Rotherham United in the League One Play-Offs, with the remaining two sides still to be confirmed.
