Republic of Ireland defender Darragh Lenihan found the net as Blackburn Rovers made it two wins in their last three matches with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Peterborough in the Championship.

The 27-year-old Meath native, who has two Boys in Green caps, scored the third goal just before half-time.

Harry Pickering headed Rovers into the lead, with Ben Brereton Diaz doubling that advantage as they went in 3-0 up at the break. Brereton Diaz then added a fourth on the hour to round off the scoring.

Fulham were unable to find a breakthrough in the absence of the Championship's leading goalscorer Aleksandar Mitrovic as they were held to a 0-0 draw by bottom club Derby at Craven Cottage.

Marco Silva's side were seeking an eighth successive win but they were denied by Wayne Rooney's determined side, who had Ireland midfielder Jason Knight in the starting line-up, while Fulham, who lost Mitrovic to an unspecified injury, were left frustrated after being unable to capitalise on a succession of good chances.

Millwall and Bournemouth shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Den.

Dominic Solanke opened the scoring for the Cherries, who looked to be heading for victory before Benik Afobe's second-half equaliser.

Luke Amos scored a late winner for QPR as they beat Huddersfield 1-0 and moved up to fourth in the table.

Olivier Ntcham and Jamie Paterson struck in the second half for Swansea as Poya Asbaghi's first game in charge of Barnsley ended in a 2-0 defeat.

It was the Tykes' 10th defeat in 11 matches.

Ntcham scored from close range in the 74th minute before Paterson doubled the lead five minutes later.

Keane Lewis-Potter scored the only goal of the game as Hull beat fellow strugglers Cardiff.

Tyreeq Bakinson's goal was enough to give Bristol City a 1-0 win over Stoke at Ashton Gate.
