Bailey Wright’s Bristol City have suffered a shock loss in the English Championship overnight, falling to a 1-0 defeat away to struggling Bolton Wanderers.
The Caltex Socceroos defender got through a full game for the Robins but couldn’t prevent his side succumbing to their fourth loss in six league matches.
A brilliant long-range strike from Bolton’s Sammy Ameobi with just under 20 minutes remaining proved the difference at the Macron Stadium.
The loss leaves Bristol in fifth spot on the Championship table, while Bolton climb out of the bottom three into 19th.
In Turkey, Aziz Behich played the full 90 minutes as Bursaspor played out a thrilling 2-2 draw at home to Besiktas.
Bursaspor appeared set to claim all three points only for ex-Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo to net deep into stoppage time to salvage a point for Besiktas.
The draw leaves Bursaspor in ninth spot on the SuperLig table.
