Caltex Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak has helped Aston Villa to a crucial 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the English Championship on Sunday (AEDT).
After recently missing two games due to a shoulder injury, Jedinak got through the full 90 minutes as Steve Bruce’s side earned a valuable three points.
Robert Snodgrass netted the only goal of the game with the winger burying a well-taken header with less than 15 minutes remaining.
The win moves Villa to 7th spot on the Championship table, level on points with sixth-placed Sheffield United.
Elsewhere, Jackson Irvine played a full game as Hull City played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Fulham.
Bailey Wright put in a full shift for Bristol City but couldn’t prevent his side from falling to a 2-1 loss at home to league-leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The loss leaves City in third spot on the table but they remain just one point behind second-placed Derby County.
