Blackburn go down to the Championship along with Wolves:

Today's EPL Result:

Blackburn Rovers 0 Wigan 1

Blackburn have been relegated to the Championship for the first time in 11 years.

Defender Antolin Alcaraz scored the only goal of the match in the 87th minute from a header.

Late winner: Alcaraz heads home for Wigan in the 87th minute to give them 3 points against Blackburn.

Where will players such as Junior Holiett, Yakubu, Paul Robinson and Morten Gamst Pedersen go? 

QPR meanwhile need to beat Manchester City next Sunday if they are to ensure that they stay in the EPL next season. 

Bolton are also in trouble, and have to beat Stoke City and hope QPR fail to get anything against City if they do not want to get relegated.

Wigan have confirmed that they stay in the PL next season, after winning 6 out of their last 8 matches.

All the relegation permutations can be seen here.
