Result: Blackburn Rovers edge out 10-man Fulham

Blackburn Rovers edge out Fulham 1-0 in the Championship thanks to Jordan Rhodes's second-half winner.

Jordan Rhodes struck a second-half winner as Blackburn Rovers beat rock-bottom Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage in the Championship this afternoon.

The home side, who sacked manager Felix Magath earlier this week, finished the game with 10 men after Shaun Hutchinson was dismissed for a poorly-timed challenge shortly before the half-time whistle.

Bryan Ruiz, who had been recalled to the side by caretaker boss Kit Symons, was pulling the strings in midfield for the home side, but it was Rovers who had the better of the chances in the first period.

Ben Marshall, who had scored three goals in his previous two games, hit a left-footed effort wide before Rhodes missed with a header after 20 minutes.

Rudy Gestede saw a shot saved shortly after the half-hour mark before Hugo Rodallega fired wide when well placed.

Rhodes scored his fourth goal in five games after the restart when he tucked away an effort into the bottom corner after the hour mark.

Despite their numerical advantage, Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer altered his approach and the visitors dropped off to hold on for the points.
