Blackburn keep fighting 

Blackburn made sure they stayed in contention after earning a 3-0 win at Arsenal, thanks to two goals from Sam Burns and a McBride penalty.

In Division 2, leaders Leeds United secured their 15th victory from 20 matches as Joe Gelhardt scored one goal and created another in a 2-1 win over Newcastle United.

He converted a first-half penalty before setting up Charlie Cresswell to net what would prove to be the decisive goal.
