CHAMPIONSHIP

  • WOLVES 2 - 1 BRISTOL CITY

Bristol City are rock bottom of the Championship after losing at relegation rivals Wolves.

City took the lead in the 25th minute with a bizarre own goal. Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme let David Davis' backpass through his legs.

But two goals in two minutes late in the second half from Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Kevin Doyle gave the home side a vital win.

The result leaves City at the foot of the Championship. Wolves stay 23rd, and there were also wins for Peterborough and Barnsley.

Bristol City are four points from safety.

Pack doubled the advantage shortly before half-time with a shot from the edge of the area.

And the three points were wrapped up six minutes from time by Steve Elliott after a mistake by Rotherham goalkeeper Andy Warrington.

  • BRISTOL ROVERS 2 - 1 ROCHDALE

Ellis Harrison scored both goals as Bristol Rovers won their fourth home game in a row.

His first came midway through the second half when the young winger ran half the length of the pitch, before letting fly with a powerful shot into the top corner.

Former Yeovil and Swindon defender Michael Rose equalised for the visitors with a 25 yard strike.

But Harrison hit the winner six minutes from the end, to move John Ward's men up one place to 14th in the table.

Bristol Rovers move up to 14th after their 2-1 win over Rochdale.
