Ipswich top Championship after Leicester promotion bid dented

Conor Chaplin's early goal earned Ipswich a 1-0 win at Blackburn and moved the visitors to the top of the Championship on Good Friday.

After Leicester's slump continued with defeat at Bristol City earlier in the day, Kieran McKenna's side knew victory at Ewood Park would place them top of the table with just seven matches to play - at least until Leeds took on Watford.

However, Daniel Farke's side were held to a draw at Vicarage Road, ensuring a perfect end to the day for Ipswich, who led after just nine minutes against Blackburn.

Chaplin started and then finished a sweeping move when his low shot somehow squirmed past Aynsley Pears at the goalkeeper's near post.

The mistake proved costly for Rovers, who saw goals from Joe Rankin-Costello and Andrew Moran correctly disallowed as they tried and failed to break down their visitors.

John Eustace's side have now won just one of their last 18 Championship matches and find themselves just three points above the relegation zone.
