Saturday's remaining fixtures were relegation thrillers with QPR missing the chance to go free of the drop zone, loosing 1-0 away at West Brom. Blackburn were also disappointing as they lost 3-0 away at Swansea City. Sunderland and Wolves played out a lack lustre goalless draw which now sees Wolves all but relegated.
