Caltex Socceroos midfielder Jackson Irvine has scored what turned out to be the winning goal for Hull City in a crucial victory for the Tigers in the Championship overnight.
Hull prevailed 3-2 over Brentford, with all five goals coming in the second half.
Despite going behind just after the break at the KCOM Stadium, goals from Kamil Grosicki and Seb Larsson put Hull in front before Irvine’s strike.
The 24-year-old Aussie was involved in the move in his own half before surging forward and getting on the end of a great pass to hold off his defender and fire home from just inside the box.
Despite conceding again late on, Hull held on for just their fifth win of the campaign to move six points clear of the relegation zone in 18th spot.
Elsewhere, fellow midfielder Massimo Luongo could do nothing to prevent QPR falling to a home defeat against Leeds United.
Luongo played the full 90 minutes but Rangers lost 3-1 to remain winless in their last six Championship matches.
And James Meredith also got through a full game in Millwall’s 0-0 draw at Aston Villa, where Mile Jedinak was missing through injury.
