    • Substitute Rothwell denies Bilic, Boro in trouble
    • Leonard sinks Hull, Forest held at Preston

    Promotion hopefuls West Brom were left frustrated after being held to a 1-1 draw by Blackburn Rovers. Filip Krovinović swept Slaven Bilic’s side into the lead but substitute Joe Rothwell cancelled that out when he converted a Sam Gallagher cross just two minutes after he had come on.

    Things could have been worse for Bilic, who was booked for an altercation on the sideline, as Rovers missed two late chances to win it, the best falling to Jacob Davenport, who was repelled by Sam Johnstone when through one on one.

  • Thu, 09 Jul 2020 10:53:46 +0000: David Dunn appointed as manager of Football League returnee Barrow - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian
    • Former Blackburn player replaces Ian Evatt, who left for Bolton
    • Cumbrian club back in Football League after 48-year absence

    David Dunn has been appointed as the manager of Barrow as the club prepare for their return to the English Football League. The former Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham midfielder has signed a two-year contract after leaving his role as a first-team coach at Blackpool.

    Dunn replaces Ian Evatt, who left to take over at Bolton Wanderers last week. Evatt had led Barrow to the Conference title and a return to the Football League after 48 years away. Dunn’s first challenge will be to keep the team in League Two after they won promotion on a points-per-game basis.

  • Sat, 04 Jul 2020 17:06:03 +0000: Leeds close on Premier League return after easing to victory over Blackburn - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    Leeds took a huge stride towards the Premier League as goals from Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich helped to secure a 3-1 win at Blackburn.

    The win moves the Championship leaders four points clear of second-placed West Brom, who will have the chance to haul back the deficit against struggling Hull on Sunday.

  • Sat, 04 Jul 2020 16:20:03 +0000: Football clockwatch: Leicester 3-0 Palace, Leeds, Brentford and Fulham win and more – as it happened - Blackburn Rovers | The Guardian

    And that’s your lot. Stay on the site for MBM coverage of Wolves v Arsenal and, later, Chelsea v Watford, plus reports and reaction from this afternoon’s action. Thanks for following. Bye.

    Related: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Arsenal: Premier League – live!

    And while I was talking you through that, Torino pulled a goal back at Juventus deep into first-half stoppage time through Andrea Belotti. It’s 2-1 to the champions at the interval.

    In the Championship, Leeds give us another excuse to overuse the phrase “16-year exile” as they strengthen their position at the top. Ten points from their final five games will put them back in the Premier League. Brentford in third are now only two points behind West Brom, who host Hull tomorrow, and the Bees must fancy their chances of nicking an automatic promotion spot. Fulham are back up to fourth, and Cardiff in sixth now have a three-point cushion to Derby in seventh.

    At the bottom Luton and Barnsley played like condemned men today but are still only five and four points respectively from safety and are likely to have Wigan slotted in beneath them when and if the Latics’ points deduction is applied.

    So what does all this mean for the league tables? Manchester United are now up to fourth, though Chelsea can go back above them this evening, and Leicester remain third, with currently a four-point cushion to fifth. Bournemouth are still second-bottom, a point from safety but having played a game more than Villa and Watford. Palace have 42 points and don’t much care.

    And here’s Jonathan Wilson’s report on Leicester’s win, and Vardy’s century:

    Related: Jamie Vardy plunders Crystal Palace to become Leicester's man of the century

    Premier League

    Leicester 3-0 Crystal Palace, Man Utd 5-2 Bournemouth, Norwich 0-1 Brighton

    And that’s enough to win it for Fulham. They should be good for a play-off place now.

    A lovely team goal breaks the deadlock at the last.

    Cardiff have clung on to beat listing Bristol City 1-0 and Stoke have beaten Barnsley 4-0.

    And Leicester’s lean run has ended - not a performance as emphatic as the scoreline but the manner, and identity, of their goals and scorers will cheer them. Palace thoughts drift closer to that beach.

    Leeds have won 3-1 at Blackburn – Bielsa’s side get ever closer - and Reading have walloped Luton 5-0. And Man Utd have beaten Bournemouth 5-2 in another scintillating display.

    An absolutely textbook Leicester, and Vardy, goal, Barnes feeding Vardy on a speedy break and the latter doing his thing.

    Tom Ince has just curled in a beauty with his left foot to add some more gloss to a victory that has been inevitable for an hour.

    Juan Cuadrado has doubled Juventus’s lead against Torino. Second-placed Lazio host Milan later tonight by the way.

    Sending off! Wigan’s sub Joe Garner left his foot too high and he has been, somewhat harshly, given a straight red. As injustices go it perhaps pales compared to your club being taken over by people who don’t seem to have the money but nothing is going right for Wigan.

    The job Neil Harris has done since taking over at Cardiff has gone a little under the radar, but they look play-off bound at the moment, and they lead now at Ashton Gate, Lee Tomlin feeding Danny Ward with a surging run through the centre before Ward’s low drive.

    Jamie Vardy comes out of the nervous 90s and has his 100th Premier League goal at last, profiting from calamitous defending from Palace’s Sakho, who lost the ball, Barnes played in Vary who finished comfortably. An actual Leicester win looks in the offing.

    McCarthy has replaced McArthur for Palace, in what is a long way from a classic at Leicester.

    There’s no doubt Benrahma meant this, the Algerian sending a crisp instinctive first-times shot into the bottom corner after fine work from Josh Dasilva. What a player, what a side, and what a model Brentford have become for clubs of their stature.

    Fulham have upped the ante against Birmingham after a lacklustre first half, but can’t make the breakthrough. Likewise for Cardiff at Bristol City.

    At the King Power, Praet has come on for the scorer, Iheanacho, a surprisingly defensive substitution perhaps. Leicester need to stay alert at the moment, Cahill having just gone close with a header for Palace.

    It’s that man again! Benrahma executes a bit of trickery down the left, cuts in then out, then curls a cross over an out of position keeper. Did he mean it? Whatever, his attacking audacity was rewarded and Brentford continue to breathe down West Brom’s necks and Wigan’s week goes from bad to worse.

    And Yakou Meite has scored his fourth of the afternoon against disintegrating Luton.

    A goal in Serie A. Juventus aren’t hanging about, Paulo Dybala putting the Serie A leaders ahead in the city derby at home to Torino after only three minutes.

    Luton’s defence has totally given up the ghost at Kenilworth Road, George Puscas applying some salt into their gaping wounds with Reading’s fourth.

    A couple of bookings to tell you about at the King Power, Marc Albrighton for a foul a few minutes ago for Leicester, and Palace’s James McArthur just now, also for a clumsy foul.

    Leeds restore their two-goal cushion, somewhat fortunately. Klich’s shot taking a deflection past the keeper Walton, who fumbled it in but appeared blindsided by a Leeds attacker in an offside looking position. But thems the breaks.

    We’ve not talked about Bristol City v Cardiff at all yet have we? As befitting recent form, Cardiff have dominated but haven’t broken through yet. Still goalless. And now it’s 4-2 to Manchester United.

    Another fine free-kick at Ewood Park, Blackburn cutting the deficit and opening things up with a lovely Adam Armstrong effort into the top right corner from 25 yards.

    Leicester lead! Tielemans gets down the left plays it inside the box, Iheanacho gets there first, controls and finishes from close range.

    Jamie Vardy has just gone close with a header for Leicester, while Manchester United have just conceded an absurd penalty through an Eric Bailly handball, it’s been scored and it’s 3-2. Game on?

    They’re back underway, around and about the place. Leicester have brought on Ryan Bennett for Ben Chilwell, who’s apparently suffering from foot knack.

    Here’s the scores on the doors at the interval:

    Premier League

    It’s still not happening for Leicester – they had the better of that half without looking particularly incisive; you’d make them underdogs for a Champions League spot now.

    It’s 3-1 to Man Utd now, a stunner from Martial.

    Milivojevic goes close for Palace with a fine, arcing free-kick from distance which just narrowly misses the target, their best – and practically their first – chance so far. Frustration in front of goal continues for Leicester though. Still goalless.

    A tremendous free-kick from Kalvin Phillips, from just left of centre is guided into the top corner with forensic accuracy. They’re not wobbling now.

    The bottom two are having a nightmare today, Campbell gets a second and Stoke’s third and that’s probably game over.

    Nathan Jones doesn’t look as if he’s going to be able to turn things round for the Championship’s bottom club, with Yakou Meite completing a career-first hat-trick for Reading, who are rampant here. A swift return to League One looks ever more likely.

    Normal, entirely predictable service is also resumed in the Premier League as Manchester United go 2-1 up against Bournemouth with a Rashford penalty.

    A magnificently farcical passage of play at Craven Cottage, where a swift Birmingham break is foiled by multiple players falling over at inopportune moments and breaking up play. Blues have been the better side mind.

    Leicester continue to dominate against Palace, who haven’t fashioned a chance worthy of the name so far, their attacking players anonymous. But they’ve not scored, which is an ongoing problem.

    Bamford off the post! A deft move prompted by Luke Ayling culminates in Bamford coming close to his and Leeds’s second at Blackburn but it remains just the 1-0 to the leaders.

    And Manchester United are level against Bournemouth.

    Brentford’s momentum shows no sign of stalling, and they lead with a classy sharp volley from Saïd Benrahma, one of the stars of the season. Read more about him here:

    Related: 'He could nutmeg a mermaid': the rise of Brentford's Saïd Benrahma | Ben Fisher

    They’re getting them in pairs in the Championship, Yakour Meite deepening Luton’s relegation woes with two in two minutes.

    Leicester have just gone close at the King Power, James Justin firing over after being fed by Ayoze Pérez.

    And Bournemouth have only gone and scored at Old Trafford. Smyth can tell you more here.

    Important goals in the big relegation tussle in the Potteries, a deft back-heel finish from Tyrese Campbell after a defensive lapse doubling Stoke’s lead after Sam Vokes had put them ahead.

    And Lewis Holtby has just hit the post for Blackburn.

    If Leeds win the second-tier this season, that’ll be their first second-tier title win since 1990, when Liverpool were also last top-tier champions. Any historical precedents for this quirk?

    The Championship leaders are ahead, though was there a foul in the buildup? Blackburn’s Travis was brusquely dispossessed by Kalvin Phillips but the ref deemed it a fair challenge, and Phillips nudged it onto Bamford who finished coolly.

    Anyone watching any of these games in a pub? How’s the atmosphere? Is there one?

    Uneventful start at the King Power, though Coyuncu and Benteke already having collided forcefully, which suggests that could be a battle to look out for. Still 0-0.

    At Craven Cottage, Birmingham’s celebrated boy wonder Jude Bellingham’s just made a bit of a mess of a chance gifted to him by Fulham doziness. 0-0 there too.

    Those whistles are a-blowin’

    And here’s Peter Lansley’s report on a dramatic finale at Derby:

    Ed Aarons was at Carrow Road watching Norwich succumb again. Here’s his report:

    From last night – Millwall kept themselves in with a play-off shout with a much-needed derby win at the Valley:

    Related: Jake Cooper cashes in on error to give Millwall victory at Charlton

    Forest will be kicking themselves, having given away a needless free-kick, which Wayne Rooney slung in for Martin to just about force home.

    So Forest stay fourth for now, with Derby in seventh and still firmly in contention for a play-off place.

    Would you Adam and Eve it! Straight after going down to 10 men, Derby have snatched a point. And that is full-time.

    Full-time at Carrow Road: Norwich have lost 0-1 to Brighton, meaning the former are surely doomed now while the latter are nearly safe. While at Pride Park, Martyn Waghorn has been sent off in injury-time with Forest still 1-0 up

    Brentford v Wigan
    Brentford: Raya, Dalsgaard, Jansson, Pinnock, Henry, Marcondes, Norgaard, Baptiste, Mbeumo, Watkins, Benrahma. Subs: Jensen, Da Silva, Valencia, Dervisoglu, Jeanvier, Fosu, Daniels, Zamburek, Roerslev Rasmussen.

    Wigan: Marshall, Byrne, Kipre, Balogun, Robinson, Williams, Morsy, Naismith, Dowell, Lowe, Moore. Subs: Macleod, Fox, Evans, Massey, Pearce, Garner, Jones, Mlakar, Gelhardt.

    Meanwhile at Pride Park Forest have just twice come close to extending their lead, Lewis Grabban firing narrowly over after a swift counter, then Tiago Silva rattling a post after being fed by Grabban.

    Here’s the teamsheet from the King Power

    Leicester: Schmeichel, Justin, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Perez, Tielemans, Ndidi, Albrighton, Iheanacho, Vardy. Subs: Morgan, Gray, Ward, Barnes, Choudhury, Mendy, Praet, Fuchs, Bennett.

    Some pre-match reading – Paul Doyle on Leicester’s decline:

    Related: Leicester unravelled and desperate owing to small squad's broken belief | Paul Doyle

    In the early games, Norwich, predictably, are losing at home to Brighton after, predictably, starting brightly then fading. Join Scott Murray for MBM fun here. And in the big east Midlands set-to at Pride Park, Nottingham Forest are clinging on to the 1-0 lead given them by Joe Lolley’s 12th-minute long-distance shot. If Forest hang on they’ll leapfrog Brentford into third, for at least a wee while anyhow.

    Afternoon everyone. The city of Leicester has bigger things to worry about right now than the fate of its football team, as it grapples with a reimposed Covid-19 lockdown and all the deep anxieties that entails. But within the smaller, less consequential bubble of Premier League football, Brendan Rodgers has had plenty to be mithered by of late too. Leicester haven’t got going at all since the resumption, and the verve of last autumn – with the likes of Jamie Vardy, Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu, James Maddison and Ben Chilwell all at the very top of their games – seems a very distant memory.

    Still, they remain in the shakeup for the Champions League places and should back themselves against a Crystal Palace side who’ve blown hot and cold since the restart – blowing away Bournemouth before being blown away themselves by Liverpool and blunted by Burnley. They’ve got less to play for today, so they could either play with freedom and confidence or like they’d rather have been in the pub since 6am, which no one actually was this morning.

    • Stuart Dallas saves Leeds from defeat against bottom side Luton
    • Brentford keep pressure on top two with fourth successive win

    The Championship leaders Leeds needed a Stuart Dallas equaliser to earn a point against the division’s bottom side Luton. Harry Cornick gave the visitors the lead early in the second half with a superb strike to spark hope of a shock victory at Elland Road.

    However, 13 minutes later Dallas calmly slotted past Simon Sluga in the Luton goal to secure a draw that extends Leeds’ lead over West Brom at the top to four points – Albion face Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday.

    Another exciting young talent has joined Rovers Ladies’ ranks

    Rovers Ladies can confirm the signing of former Manchester United youngster Charlotte Newsham.

Newly relegated Blackburn Rovers have now resigned themselves to loosing many of their top players in the closed season due to their unsuccessful season just gone which will break the hearts of many of their supporters. One of the first players who will make an exit from Ewood Park is French midfielder Steven N`Zonzi who look set to return to the premier league as their are now a number of clubs battling for the players signature.

On a plus note the side from the north have many targets on their scope for the new season as Steve Kean looks to bolster his squad options with the first of these to be signed being the Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes. The influential striker has just signed a two year deal to take him to Ewood Park on a free transfer as he was released from his previous side Braga at the end of the season.

Another two players who have been signed by kean so far are Danny Murphy and Leon Best who have recently both signed lucrative deals to help the side retake their position in the top flight of English football. Both players arrived on free transfers which is always a bonus for clubs and bring with them a wealth of experience.

Want away winger Junior Hoilett is another player who is close to leaving the club this summer as he is on the verge of a move to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. The player is also said to have held talks with many of the premier leagues top clubs but it look for than likely that the player will look for pastures new in on of Europe’s top leagues. The twenty two year old has just been seen to fly out to Germany to seal this deal so barring a disaster you will see him in the colours of Monchengladbach next season.

Finally rover have also been involved in arranging the transfer of up and coming Ipswich goal keeper Scott Loach who has been on Keans radar for some time and are now looking to hijack an approach from Watford. The young keeper is thought to be the perfect player for Kean to rebuild from the back and it is believe that Loach is very keen on a move up north.

David Dunn has been appointed as the manager of Barrow as the club prepare for their return to the English Football League. The former Blackburn Rovers and Birmingham midfielder has signed a two-year contract after leaving his role as a first-team coach at Blackpool.

Dunn replaces Ian Evatt, who left to take over at Bolton Wanderers last week. Evatt had led Barrow to the Conference title and a return to the Football League after 48 years away. Dunn’s first challenge will be to keep the team in League Two after they won promotion on a points-per-game basis.

Leeds close on Premier League return after easing to victory over Blackburn

Leeds took a huge stride towards the Premier League as goals from Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich helped to secure a 3-1 win at Blackburn.

The win moves the Championship leaders four points clear of second-placed West Brom, who will have the chance to haul back the deficit against struggling Hull on Sunday.

Football clockwatch: Leicester 3-0 Palace, Leeds, Brentford and Fulham win and more – as it happened

And that’s your lot. Stay on the site for MBM coverage of Wolves v Arsenal and, later, Chelsea v Watford, plus reports and reaction from this afternoon’s action. Thanks for following. Bye.

Related: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Arsenal: Premier League – live!

And while I was talking you through that, Torino pulled a goal back at Juventus deep into first-half stoppage time through Andrea Belotti. It’s 2-1 to the champions at the interval.

In the Championship, Leeds give us another excuse to overuse the phrase “16-year exile” as they strengthen their position at the top. Ten points from their final five games will put them back in the Premier League. Brentford in third are now only two points behind West Brom, who host Hull tomorrow, and the Bees must fancy their chances of nicking an automatic promotion spot. Fulham are back up to fourth, and Cardiff in sixth now have a three-point cushion to Derby in seventh.

At the bottom Luton and Barnsley played like condemned men today but are still only five and four points respectively from safety and are likely to have Wigan slotted in beneath them when and if the Latics’ points deduction is applied.

So what does all this mean for the league tables? Manchester United are now up to fourth, though Chelsea can go back above them this evening, and Leicester remain third, with currently a four-point cushion to fifth. Bournemouth are still second-bottom, a point from safety but having played a game more than Villa and Watford. Palace have 42 points and don’t much care.

And here’s Jonathan Wilson’s report on Leicester’s win, and Vardy’s century:

Premier League

Leicester 3-0 Crystal Palace, Man Utd 5-2 Bournemouth, Norwich 0-1 Brighton

And that’s enough to win it for Fulham. They should be good for a play-off place now.

A lovely team goal breaks the deadlock at the last.

Cardiff have clung on to beat listing Bristol City 1-0 and Stoke have beaten Barnsley 4-0.

And Leicester’s lean run has ended - not a performance as emphatic as the scoreline but the manner, and identity, of their goals and scorers will cheer them. Palace thoughts drift closer to that beach.

Leeds have won 3-1 at Blackburn – Bielsa’s side get ever closer - and Reading have walloped Luton 5-0. And Man Utd have beaten Bournemouth 5-2 in another scintillating display.

An absolutely textbook Leicester, and Vardy, goal, Barnes feeding Vardy on a speedy break and the latter doing his thing.

Tom Ince has just curled in a beauty with his left foot to add some more gloss to a victory that has been inevitable for an hour.

Juan Cuadrado has doubled Juventus’s lead against Torino. Second-placed Lazio host Milan later tonight by the way.

Sending off! Wigan’s sub Joe Garner left his foot too high and he has been, somewhat harshly, given a straight red. As injustices go it perhaps pales compared to your club being taken over by people who don’t seem to have the money but nothing is going right for Wigan.

The job Neil Harris has done since taking over at Cardiff has gone a little under the radar, but they look play-off bound at the moment, and they lead now at Ashton Gate, Lee Tomlin feeding Danny Ward with a surging run through the centre before Ward’s low drive.

Jamie Vardy comes out of the nervous 90s and has his 100th Premier League goal at last, profiting from calamitous defending from Palace’s Sakho, who lost the ball, Barnes played in Vary who finished comfortably. An actual Leicester win looks in the offing.

McCarthy has replaced McArthur for Palace, in what is a long way from a classic at Leicester.

There’s no doubt Benrahma meant this, the Algerian sending a crisp instinctive first-times shot into the bottom corner after fine work from Josh Dasilva. What a player, what a side, and what a model Brentford have become for clubs of their stature.

Fulham have upped the ante against Birmingham after a lacklustre first half, but can’t make the breakthrough. Likewise for Cardiff at Bristol City.

At the King Power, Praet has come on for the scorer, Iheanacho, a surprisingly defensive substitution perhaps. Leicester need to stay alert at the moment, Cahill having just gone close with a header for Palace.

It’s that man again! Benrahma executes a bit of trickery down the left, cuts in then out, then curls a cross over an out of position keeper. Did he mean it? Whatever, his attacking audacity was rewarded and Brentford continue to breathe down West Brom’s necks and Wigan’s week goes from bad to worse.

And Yakou Meite has scored his fourth of the afternoon against disintegrating Luton.

A goal in Serie A. Juventus aren’t hanging about, Paulo Dybala putting the Serie A leaders ahead in the city derby at home to Torino after only three minutes.

Luton’s defence has totally given up the ghost at Kenilworth Road, George Puscas applying some salt into their gaping wounds with Reading’s fourth.

A couple of bookings to tell you about at the King Power, Marc Albrighton for a foul a few minutes ago for Leicester, and Palace’s James McArthur just now, also for a clumsy foul.

Leeds restore their two-goal cushion, somewhat fortunately. Klich’s shot taking a deflection past the keeper Walton, who fumbled it in but appeared blindsided by a Leeds attacker in an offside looking position. But thems the breaks.

We’ve not talked about Bristol City v Cardiff at all yet have we? As befitting recent form, Cardiff have dominated but haven’t broken through yet. Still goalless. And now it’s 4-2 to Manchester United.

Another fine free-kick at Ewood Park, Blackburn cutting the deficit and opening things up with a lovely Adam Armstrong effort into the top right corner from 25 yards.

Leicester lead! Tielemans gets down the left plays it inside the box, Iheanacho gets there first, controls and finishes from close range.

Jamie Vardy has just gone close with a header for Leicester, while Manchester United have just conceded an absurd penalty through an Eric Bailly handball, it’s been scored and it’s 3-2. Game on?

They’re back underway, around and about the place. Leicester have brought on Ryan Bennett for Ben Chilwell, who’s apparently suffering from foot knack.

Here’s the scores on the doors at the interval:

Premier League

It’s still not happening for Leicester – they had the better of that half without looking particularly incisive; you’d make them underdogs for a Champions League spot now.

It’s 3-1 to Man Utd now, a stunner from Martial.

Milivojevic goes close for Palace with a fine, arcing free-kick from distance which just narrowly misses the target, their best – and practically their first – chance so far. Frustration in front of goal continues for Leicester though. Still goalless.

A tremendous free-kick from Kalvin Phillips, from just left of centre is guided into the top corner with forensic accuracy. They’re not wobbling now.

The bottom two are having a nightmare today, Campbell gets a second and Stoke’s third and that’s probably game over.

Nathan Jones doesn’t look as if he’s going to be able to turn things round for the Championship’s bottom club, with Yakou Meite completing a career-first hat-trick for Reading, who are rampant here. A swift return to League One looks ever more likely.

Normal, entirely predictable service is also resumed in the Premier League as Manchester United go 2-1 up against Bournemouth with a Rashford penalty.

A magnificently farcical passage of play at Craven Cottage, where a swift Birmingham break is foiled by multiple players falling over at inopportune moments and breaking up play. Blues have been the better side mind.

Leicester continue to dominate against Palace, who haven’t fashioned a chance worthy of the name so far, their attacking players anonymous. But they’ve not scored, which is an ongoing problem.

Bamford off the post! A deft move prompted by Luke Ayling culminates in Bamford coming close to his and Leeds’s second at Blackburn but it remains just the 1-0 to the leaders.

And Manchester United are level against Bournemouth.

Brentford’s momentum shows no sign of stalling, and they lead with a classy sharp volley from Saïd Benrahma, one of the stars of the season. Read more about him here:

Related: 'He could nutmeg a mermaid': the rise of Brentford's Saïd Benrahma | Ben Fisher

They’re getting them in pairs in the Championship, Yakour Meite deepening Luton’s relegation woes with two in two minutes.

Leicester have just gone close at the King Power, James Justin firing over after being fed by Ayoze Pérez.

And Bournemouth have only gone and scored at Old Trafford. Smyth can tell you more here.

Important goals in the big relegation tussle in the Potteries, a deft back-heel finish from Tyrese Campbell after a defensive lapse doubling Stoke’s lead after Sam Vokes had put them ahead.

And Lewis Holtby has just hit the post for Blackburn.

If Leeds win the second-tier this season, that’ll be their first second-tier title win since 1990, when Liverpool were also last top-tier champions. Any historical precedents for this quirk?

The Championship leaders are ahead, though was there a foul in the buildup? Blackburn’s Travis was brusquely dispossessed by Kalvin Phillips but the ref deemed it a fair challenge, and Phillips nudged it onto Bamford who finished coolly.

Anyone watching any of these games in a pub? How’s the atmosphere? Is there one?

Uneventful start at the King Power, though Coyuncu and Benteke already having collided forcefully, which suggests that could be a battle to look out for. Still 0-0.

At Craven Cottage, Birmingham’s celebrated boy wonder Jude Bellingham’s just made a bit of a mess of a chance gifted to him by Fulham doziness. 0-0 there too.

Those whistles are a-blowin’

And here’s Peter Lansley’s report on a dramatic finale at Derby:

Ed Aarons was at Carrow Road watching Norwich succumb again. Here’s his report:

From last night – Millwall kept themselves in with a play-off shout with a much-needed derby win at the Valley:

Related: Jake Cooper cashes in on error to give Millwall victory at Charlton

Forest will be kicking themselves, having given away a needless free-kick, which Wayne Rooney slung in for Martin to just about force home.

So Forest stay fourth for now, with Derby in seventh and still firmly in contention for a play-off place.

Would you Adam and Eve it! Straight after going down to 10 men, Derby have snatched a point. And that is full-time.

Full-time at Carrow Road: Norwich have lost 0-1 to Brighton, meaning the former are surely doomed now while the latter are nearly safe. While at Pride Park, Martyn Waghorn has been sent off in injury-time with Forest still 1-0 up

Brentford v Wigan
Brentford: Raya, Dalsgaard, Jansson, Pinnock, Henry, Marcondes, Norgaard, Baptiste, Mbeumo, Watkins, Benrahma. Subs: Jensen, Da Silva, Valencia, Dervisoglu, Jeanvier, Fosu, Daniels, Zamburek, Roerslev Rasmussen.

Wigan: Marshall, Byrne, Kipre, Balogun, Robinson, Williams, Morsy, Naismith, Dowell, Lowe, Moore. Subs: Macleod, Fox, Evans, Massey, Pearce, Garner, Jones, Mlakar, Gelhardt.

Meanwhile at Pride Park Forest have just twice come close to extending their lead, Lewis Grabban firing narrowly over after a swift counter, then Tiago Silva rattling a post after being fed by Grabban.

Here’s the teamsheet from the King Power

Leicester: Schmeichel, Justin, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Perez, Tielemans, Ndidi, Albrighton, Iheanacho, Vardy. Subs: Morgan, Gray, Ward, Barnes, Choudhury, Mendy, Praet, Fuchs, Bennett.

Some pre-match reading – Paul Doyle on Leicester’s decline:

Related: Leicester unravelled and desperate owing to small squad's broken belief | Paul Doyle

In the early games, Norwich, predictably, are losing at home to Brighton after, predictably, starting brightly then fading. Join Scott Murray for MBM fun here. And in the big east Midlands set-to at Pride Park, Nottingham Forest are clinging on to the 1-0 lead given them by Joe Lolley’s 12th-minute long-distance shot. If Forest hang on they’ll leapfrog Brentford into third, for at least a wee while anyhow.

Afternoon everyone. The city of Leicester has bigger things to worry about right now than the fate of its football team, as it grapples with a reimposed Covid-19 lockdown and all the deep anxieties that entails. But within the smaller, less consequential bubble of Premier League football, Brendan Rodgers has had plenty to be mithered by of late too. Leicester haven’t got going at all since the resumption, and the verve of last autumn – with the likes of Jamie Vardy, Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu, James Maddison and Ben Chilwell all at the very top of their games – seems a very distant memory.

Still, they remain in the shakeup for the Champions League places and should back themselves against a Crystal Palace side who’ve blown hot and cold since the restart – blowing away Bournemouth before being blown away themselves by Liverpool and blunted by Burnley. They’ve got less to play for today, so they could either play with freedom and confidence or like they’d rather have been in the pub since 6am, which no one actually was this morning.

Championship roundup: Leeds fight for draw while Brentford beat Reading

  • Stuart Dallas saves Leeds from defeat against bottom side Luton
  • Brentford keep pressure on top two with fourth successive win

The Championship leaders Leeds needed a Stuart Dallas equaliser to earn a point against the division’s bottom side Luton. Harry Cornick gave the visitors the lead early in the second half with a superb strike to spark hope of a shock victory at Elland Road.

However, 13 minutes later Dallas calmly slotted past Simon Sluga in the Luton goal to secure a draw that extends Leeds’ lead over West Brom at the top to four points – Albion face Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday.

Lewis Holtby: 'Losing 6-0 to Liverpool last week showed us what we have to do better'

The Blackburn midfielder on his team’s play-off chances, his Anglo-German family and his former Spurs teammates

The Zoom call is coming to an end but one final question needs to be asked of Lewis Holtby: who is the best player he has had the privilege of calling a teammate? He puffs his cheeks before reeling off not one but three: Mousa Dembélé, Gareth Bale and Raúl, with whom he played at Schalke before joining Tottenham. His roll call has the makings of a handy five-a-side team. “I wouldn’t mind it,” he says, smiling. “Put Manuel Neuer in goal and we would win the Championship!”

Holtby may not be targeting the title when 10th-placed Blackburn Rovers’ season resumes at home to Bristol City on Saturday but the midfielder is determined to mount a promotion push via the play-offs. He sustained a knee ligament injury in February and was set to miss the run-in but is raring to go. “From 11th to third place, I would say it’s all to play for. From these nine games, you need to win at least six because the competition is going to be intense; you can win two on the bounce and be right up there and then draw two and be miles off it. It’s important to beat your hardest opponents.”
