Caltex Socceroos midfielder Jackson Irvine has endured a roller-coaster outing for Burton Albion on what was a mixed weekend for Aussies in the English Championship.
IRVINE’S CRAZY NINE MINUTES
After receiving a yellow card just before the half-hour mark, Irvine produced a piece of sublime skill to draw Albion level on 33 minutes against Hull City.
The ball was played into the 24-year-old’s path just outside the box and he curled a classy strike into the top corner to make it 1-1.
But Irvine undid all his good work soon after when he received a second yellow in trying to prevent a Hull counter-attack, earning himself an early shower.
It proved crucial as Albion capitulated after the break to lose 4-1.
MEREDITH IMPRESSING AT MILLWALL
The newly-promoted Lions picked up their first point of the season in a 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers.
George Saville gave Millwall the lead early in the second half, only for it to be cancelled out by Filipe Morais’ excellent free-kick.
In his home debut, Meredith – who is keeping club captain Tony Craig out of the team was one of Millwall’s best, showing great energy and quality at both ends of the pitch.
LUONGO’S RANGERS STAY UNBEATEN
With Luongo producing another solid 90 minutes, QPR battled out a well-earned 1-1 draw at promotion-hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday.
Jamie Mackie had Rangers 1-0 up at the break but Sam Winnall’s goal early in the second half meant the points were shared at Hillsborough.
WRIGHT’S BRISTOL SUFFER DEFEAT
There was nothing skipper Bailey Wright could do to prevent Bristol City falling to a narrow 2-1 defeat at Birmingham City.
Bristol lead inside a minute through Bobby Reid but goals either side of half-time from Craig Gardner and Jacques Maghoma handed the home side victory.
Wright played a full game for the Robins, who are 10 th in the Championship after two matches.
