Aussies Abroad: Lightning strikes twice for Mabil and FC Midtjylland

There was late drama yet again for Awer Mabil in the Danish Superliga overnight as FC Midtjylland made it four straight wins in a 1-0 triumph over Aalborg.

For the second week in a row, it was Brazilian midfielder Evander who won it for Mabil's Wolves, netting an 89th minute free-kick winner only seven days after his 88th minute penalty gave Midtjylland a 1-0 win over AGF.

It came just four minutes after manager Kenneth Andersen had thrown Caltex Socceroo flyer Mabil into the action as Midtjylland - who had defender Erik Sviatchenko sent off early in the second half - pushed for the breakthrough.

The result ensures Midtjylland remain neck and neck with reigning champions Copenhagen after four rounds. Mabil's side face Scottish Premiership giants Rangers in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round tie this Friday morning, kick off 4:00am AEST.

Taggart silenced, Wright's Robins fall to Leeds

Adam Taggart endured a rare off night in front of goal for Suwon Bluewings on Sunday evening (AEST) as the K-League club spurned the chance to solidify their spot in the top six in a 1-0 loss to Pohang Steelers.

The Perth-born striker, who tops the golden boot charts with 13 goals in 21 appearances, had buried five in his last six league outings for Suwon but the Bluewings were undone by goals from young Korea Republic midfielder Lee Soo-bin and Brazilian defender Wanderson either side of half time.

Meanwhile, in the EFL Championship, club skipper Bailey Wright was not involved as Bristol City opened their campaign with a 3-1 defeat to Leeds United 3-1.
