A season of high drama in the English Championship has concluded and Nottingham Forest are safe from relegation to League One. The same cannot be said for Blackburn Rovers who have gone down into the English third tier.
Rovers went into the final day having to better Nottingham Forest’s scoreline, with the two clubs level on points but Forest ahead on goal difference.
A thumping 3-0 win for Mark Warburton’s men over Ipswich Town meant that there was just too much needed to be done to rescue the situation. With Birmingham City also getting the result they required, it’s Rovers who lose out.
Forest fans are of course relieved and delighted in equal measure and they’re enjoying a good old fashioned gloat over their relegation rivals right now.
It’s never pretty seeing teams go down, especially on the last day, but when it’s you or them, tribalism takes over!
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on beating Rovers in the relegation race…
