A Wembley showdown between three Aussies is looking more likely after the first legs of the League One play-offs on Friday morning.
Massimo Luongo’s Swindon Town and Preston North End – home of Bailey Wright and Neil Kilkenny – both secured huge wins away from home.
It means if both of their sides avoid defeat at home in next week’s second legs, the two sides will go head-to-head at Wembley later this month for promotion to the English Championship.
Luongo’s Swindon did it the hard way against Sheffield United, going behind early on at Bramall Lane and then missing a penalty midway through the first half.
But the Robins wouldn’t be denied after the break, equalising early in the second half before Luongo set up Nathan Byrne’s stoppage-time winner.
