Aussies abroad weekend wrap

With the Socceroos' FIFA World Cup qualifier against Jordan less than five days away here's how our overseas contingent fared for their clubs over the weekend.


Tommy Oar made his league debut in the Championship but was unable to prevent Ipswich Town suffering a 2-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers after coming off the bench.

Massimo Luongo didn’t feature in Queens Park Rangers 4-3 win over Bolton Wanderers despite being nominated as a contender for the 2015 Ballon d’Or.

Jason Davidson was part of Huddersfield Town’s defence that conceded three goals without reply against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Goalkeepers Mark Schwarzer and Adam Federici were on the sideline for their sides in Premier League action.

Leicester City continued their remarkable start to the season with a 2-1 away win over Norwich, while AFC Bournemouth were held to a 1-1 result at home to Watford.

Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak remains unavailable for selection with a hamstring injury as Crystal Palace recorded a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Ryan McGowan and Adam Taggart were on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline for Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership.

Jackson Irvine also suffered a defeat, with Ross County losing 2-1 at home to Inverness CT.

Scott McDonald was deployed in attack for Motherwell as his side went down 2-1 to Dundee FC.

The match saw Jesse Curran make his debut for Dundee after the 19-year-old was deployed as a first-half substitute. The former Central Coast Mariners youngster put in an eye-catching display to suggest he'll be one to watch in the future.

Ben Halloran set up the opener for FC Heidenheim in their comfortable 4-0 win over FSV Frankfurt in Germany’s second tier.
