Round-up: Thursday night EFL action

29 March 2018

Two fixtures were played out in Sky Bet League One on Thursday night, with different permutations at both ends of the table. We take a look back here…

At Ewood Park, Blackburn Rovers, who began the night in third, moved back to the summit with a 2-0 victory over Bradford City.

There was nothing to choose between the two sides until the deadlock was broken by Bradley Dack, with just over 20 minutes left on the clock.

Matters were then settled by substitute Craig Conway. The Scotsman had only been on the field for a short time, but finished after Dack’s effort had fell his way.

It's now six triumphs in their last seven for Rovers. As for the Bantams, they remain fifth.

Three points also went the way of Milton Keynes Dons, as Dan Micciche’s side picked up a third win in four, to move out of the League One relegation zone.

They defeated Gillingham at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium, and did so by a 2-1 margin. Chuks Aneke opened the scoring for the visitors, as he struck just over ten minutes before the break.

However, that joy was short lived, and the hosts hit back not too soon after. Navid Nasseri got the goal, to mark his full debut in style.

It looked as though proceedings would finish level but, the away side had other ideas, with George Williams scoring the eventual winner, just four minutes from time.
