Aussies abroad: Jones' amazing season continues

Keeper Brad Jones’ memorable season continues after his Dutch club had a big win overnight and he was lauded by UEFA following his impressive Europa League displays.

Jones’ Feyenoord progressed to the next round of the KNVB Beker (Dutch Cup) after a 5-1 drubbing of ADO Den Haag.

The 34-year-old one-time Caltex Socceroo only conceded three minutes from time with his side already 5-0 up thanks to a hat-trick from Dutch veteran Dirk Kuyt.

There was better news for Bailey Wright’s Preston North End, who came away with a 1-1 draw from their trip to Nottingham Forest.

The Caltex Socceroos defender played the full 90 minutes for Preston, who are now 11th in the Championship and just six points from the playoff places.
