Nottingham Forest secure Championship survival with 3-0 win over Ipswich

Wins for another historic club, two-time European champion Nottingham Forest - 3-0 over Ipswich - and Chinese-owned Birmingham City, which beat Bristol City 1-0, condemned Rovers, owned by Indian poultry firm Venkys, to the drop.

Rovers' fate was sealed as Birmingham claimed a second win under Harry Redknapp to maintain their two point gap over Rovers who were relegated on goal difference.

Blackburn have four Irish players on their books at present - Anthony Stokes, Darragh Lenihan and Derrick Williams, while Tommie Hoban is now at the club on loan from Watford.

It was only goal difference that saw the Ewood Park club slip into League One and sparked wild celebrations from Birmingham supporters as relief swept all over the travelling fans at Ashton Gate.

Down at the bottom, there was despair for Blackburn as they became the first former Premier League champions to be demoted to League One.

The club will be in the third tier for the first time since 1980.

Mowbray said: "We have to take it on the chin".

He said at a press conference: "You have to be aware of other results, but the focus will be on us because the game can change so quickly, so we have to look at ourselves and make sure the team see it as a positive challenge".

Elsewhere on the final day, Brighton & Hove Albion were pegged back late on by Aston Villa in the West Midlands to gift the Championship title to Newcastle United, who were 3-0 winners over Barnsley. "If they're ambitious and want to have a go next year, then I'd be interested".

"Football-wise it was okay, but today I think we wanted a football game and I'm not sure Blackburn wanted to give us that".

"Twenty two points from 15 games, they say promotion form is two points a game, we have taken 11 from five games, but ultimately it's not been enough".
