Championship Team of the Week, Round 22: Blackburn brilliant in Bristol

Elsewhere Austin and Rhodes get back on the goal trail

The play-off positions in the Championship are getting predictably bunched as West Brom and Leeds seemingly disappear into the distance.

Leeds' Helder Costa was their star man despite their bizarre capitulation at home to Cardiff, while Charlie Austin's double helped WBA to a crucial away win at Birmingham.

There were two hat-tricks, with Barnsley's Conor Chaplin and Sheffield Wednesday's Jordan Rhodes both finish with real style, while Andre Ayew's double was enough for Swansea to record victory over Middlesbrough.

Bradley Johnson was brilliant in both boxes as Blackburn stunned Bristol City at Ashton Gate, while his team-mate Amari'i Bell was the standout stopper who kept City at bay.

Millwall's resurgence under Gary Rowett continued with Shaun Hutchison's superb display clinching a clean sheet at Derby, and Fulham's Alfie Mawson and Marek Rodak kept the score down, limiting a rampant Brentford to just a single goal.
