Nottingham Forest ‘s Championship season continued with a draw against Rotherham at the New York Stadium on Saturday.

A point was collected by Forest at Rotherham. This nil-nil ended the run of defeats to keep us away from any possible relegation trouble, another point would make sure.

Ryan Mendes went closest to winning it with him denied a couple of time by former Forest ‘keeper Lee Camp in the first half with Richard Wood missing the best chance for Rotherham, who haven’t beaten us at home since 1956 with it now seven draws in a row.

The Millers are now nine-matches unbeaten with us ending our four-match losing run to keep the gap between us and MK Dons (in the final relegation spot) nine-points.

Here’s a round up of the Championship action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Friday 15th April 2016
Brighton 5-0 Fulham
Hull 2-1 Wolves

Saturday 16th April 2016
Bolton 1-2 Middlesbrough
Birmingham 1-2 Burnley
Blackburn 0-2 Huddersfield
Brentford 1-1 Bristol City
Cardiff 0-0 QPR
Charlton 0-1 Derby
Leeds 3-2 Reading
Preston 1-1 MK Dons
Rotherham 0-0 Nottm Forest
Sheff Wed 1-1 Ipswich

Brighton (five-nil) remain very much on course for automatic promotion with them laying down a marker ahead of the matches played by their rivals by thrashing Fulham, now clear of danger, at the Amex Stadium on Friday.

It’ll be unlikely Hull (two-one) join them in the top two but those hopes were helped by a win against Wolves, if nothing else to strengthen the play-off place at least.

Both Middlesbrough (two-one) and Burnley (two-one) did indeed reacted with wins against Bolton and Birmingham, respectively, keeping them top and second (again) respectively.

The battle for automatic promotion is very much on but the play-offs seem all but settled now with Cardiff (nil-nil) held at the Cardiff City Stadium by QPR to virtually end their hopes of making the top six.

Relegation issues are also all but certain now?

Looking almost certain to join Bolton in dropping into League 1 are Charlton (one-nil) after they were beaten at the Valley by Derby and MK Dons (one-one) with a point at Preston not enough.

Who was the Forest MotM in this game?

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
