Caltex Socceroos trio Mark Milligan, Jamie Maclaren and Martin Boyle all started as Hibernian narrowly went down to Aberdeen 1-0 in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday morning (AEDT).
In blustery conditions at Pittodrie, Aberdeen snared the only goal of a tight affair five minutes before half-time when winger Gary Mackay-Steven pounced on a loose pass and found the bottom right corner with a powerful shot.
Milligan, skippering the side, was a menace to the hosts' forward line all night, making himself known and almost setting up an equaliser when he floated a pass forward but striker Florian Kamberi could not finish.
Maclaren continued his positive return from injury with an industrious 80 minutes before being substituted for Lewis Allan.
Meanwhile Mustafa Amini came off the bench as his side AGF went down to Danish Superliga giants Brondby IF 2-0.
