Massimo Luongo’s impressive run of form has continued with the Socceroos midfielder helping QPR to an upset win in the Championship overnight.
The 23-year-old played the full 90 minutes as the Hoops stunned playoff hopefuls Birmingham City 2-0 at Loftus Road.
The creative midfielder has now started in eight consecutive League matches for QPR after initially struggling for game time under new boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink late last year.
Luongo admitted last month that it was difficult to be stuck on the sidelines but recognised hard work was the key to be able to force his way into the team.
"I am very happy," Luongo told QPR's website.
"The manager has asked for a different side of me to come out in games and I have worked to do that in training while I wasn't getting in the team.
"A little bit of luck got me in the side, and I am really happy to be back in."
Elsewhere, Jason Davidson also played 90 minutes but could do little as his Huddersfield Town outfit were beaten 1-0 at home by Ipswich Town.
In League one, James Meredith got through a full shift as Bradford City secured a hard-fought 1-0 win away to Blackpool.
The victory pushed City into seventh spot and within touching distance of a playoff spot, with Coventry City a point further ahead in sixth.
In Germany, Mat Leckie started and played a full match as FC Ingolstadt were held to a 1-1 draw away to Hamburger SV.
