Harrison Reed’s Blackburn Rovers remained in touch with the Championship top six following a second consecutive league win at Milwall on Saturday.

The midfielder anchored the Rovers midfield once more who scored twice in just over a minute to snatch a late victory over the Lions to climb to 14th in the table.

Joe Nuttall scrambled home from close range before Adam Armstrong secured the points 18 seconds after restart.

Elsewhere, Guido Carrillo and Léganes earned some breathing space at the bottom end of La Liga with a 1-0 win over Huesca. Mauricio Pellegrino’s side rose to 13th - three points clear of the relegation zone – courtesy of Youssef En-Nesyri’s near-post volley.

The afternoon was blighted for the striker who was withdrawn through injury after 63 minutes.

Slipping below them as a result were Celta Vigo; Saints winger Sofiane Boufal played for 81 minutes of their third La Liga defeat in a row, succumbing 4-2 to rivals Rayo Vallecano.

Back home, Kingsley Latham’s Dorchester Town were unfortunate to be eliminated from the FA Trophy away at Barnet. Latham, who returned to the line-up after sitting out the derby win over Poole, could do little about both home goals.

Dorchester’s Ben Seymour had cancelled out Shaquile Coulthirst’s 50th-minute strike only for Craig Robson to ease fears of a cup upset and send the National League side through to the next round.
