The Blues were 4-1 winners thanks to John Marquis’ opener in first-half stoppage-time, Ellis Harrison’s double after the restart and substitute Marcus Harness rounding off the scoring. That came after Brandon Goodship had struck to pull it back to 2-1 with 20 minutes left. The win was just a fifth of the season in the league for Kenny Jackett’s troops.
