Caltex Socceroo midfielder Jackson Irvine scored in the English Championship this morning but there was a first defeat for Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield Town.
Capping another classy display for Burton Albion, Irvine scored with a cracking strike from the edge of the box as his side drew 1-1 at Fulham.
Receiving the ball on the edge of the area, Irvine struck a sweet effort guiding it perfectly into the bottom corner.
It was Irvine’s fourth goal in his last five league appearances for Burton, who were only denied three points after conceding in stoppage time.
Elsewhere, Mooy was unable to inspire Huddersfield to another win as they went down 1-0 at Brighton Hove Albion.
Frenchman Anthony Knockaert got the winner for the home side 10 minutes from time, handing Town their first defeat of the season.
Despite the loss they remain on top of the table in the Championship, one point ahead of Newcastle United who crushed Massimo Luongo’s QPR 6-0.
Luongo wasn’t involved for Rangers, who clearly missed his presence in midfield on a tough night at Loftus Road.
Tom Rogic’s Celtic were on the end of a Barcelona masterclass this morning, crashing to their heaviest defeat in the UEFA Champions League.
Rogic was surprisingly left on the bench by Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers for the clash at the Camp Nou, but the move backfired as the Scottish champions were crushed 7-0 by a rampant Barca.
Bailey Wright watched from the bench as Preston North End won 3-0 at home to Cardiff City, a result which has seen them jump out of the relegation zone for the first time this season.
And there was a goal for ex-Melbourne Victory defender Giancarlo Gallifuoco in England’s National League, but his Torquay United side lost 3-1 at Woking FC.
