It was a subdued return to club land for our Aussies abroad following the Socceroos' back-to back wins in the international break – here’s the pick of the players that featured.
Adam Federici was in goals for AFC Bournemouth as they picked up a valuable Premier League point courtesy of 2-2 draw against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
Mark Schwarzer was again an unused substitute for Leicester City who amazingly sit top of the EPL standings following a 3-0 win over Newcastle United.
It was an unhappy return to club land for Bailey Wright who was shown a red card following two bookable offences in Preston North End’s 2-1 loss to Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.
Chris Herd featured for Chesterfield FC as they went down 3-2 on their travels to Port Vale also in England’s second tier.
Alex Cisak was in goals as Leyton Orient claimed a 3-2 victory over York City to retain seventh place in League Two.
Brad Smith played his first minutes in Liverpool colours since re-signing with the club, deployed as a second half substitute in their U-21 side’s 2-0 loss to SL Benfica.
Ryan McGowan set up the opener for Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership but unfortunately his side went on to lose 2-1 to St. Johnstone FC.
