Blackburn finished their campaign with a 1-0 victory at Aston Villa courtesy of Richard Dunne's late own goal.
Dunne headed into his own net six minutes from time to ensure Rovers finished 10th in the Barclays Premier League.
Other results meant Villa, who had plenty of chances to win themselves, hung on to sixth place and will not have to play an extra round in next season's Europa League.
