Caltex Socceroos defender Bailey Wright has led Bristol City to another win in the Championship, but it was an unhappy return from injury for Mile Jedinak.
Wright, the Bristol City skipper, helped guide his side to a fourth-straight win in the Championship, this time a 2-1 victory at home to Nottingham Forest.
The in-form defender played the full 90 minutes as first half goals from Marlon Pack and Joe Bryan set up another huge three points for the Robins.
Lee Johnson’s side remain in third spot on the Championship ladder, four points off Cardiff City in the automatic promotion position.
Elsewhere, there were wins for fellow Aussies Massimo Luongo and James Meredith.
Luongo played another full game in the heart of QPR’s midfield as they scored a 2-1 win at Birmingham City thanks to Jack Robinson’s brace.
Millwall pulled further clear of the drop zone with a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough, with left-back James Meredith also playing the full 90 minutes.
The news wasn’t so good for Caltex Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak.
While the clash at Derby marked his return from injury, Jedinak played centre-back and could do nothing to prevent his side falling to a 2-0 defeat.
Despite the loss Steve Bruce’s men are still in fifth spot.
And Jackson Irvine was unable to build on his first Hull City goal last weekend as the Tigers lost 1-0 at high-flyers Cardiff.
