Blackburn moved above Lancashire rivals Wigan at the lower end of the table with a 1-0 win over Derby.

A Craig Conway penalty proved decisive as Blackburn moved to 33 points, the same as 21st-placed Bristol City. But Rovers have a game in hand.

Derby are now 10 points adrift of the play-off places.

City were beaten 2-0 by Aston Villa, who won for a second successive game to move nine points clear of the drop zone.

Jonathan Kodjia and Conor Hourihane were on target for Villa.

Blackburn defender Shane Duffy had a night to forget as he scored two own goals and was sent off in Rovers' defeat at Cardiff.

Bluebirds wing-back Declan John burst through after 14 minutes and hit a shot against the right post, with Duffy stroking the rebound into an empty net.

Six minutes later, the 24-year-old Republic of Ireland international met Peter Whittingham's right-wing free-kick with a firm downward header past startled Rovers goalkeeper Jason Steele.

Duffy was sent off at the death after booting the ball away as Blackburn lost 2-1.

He also scored an own goal as Rovers lost 3-0 to Wigan at the weekend.
