As Ange Postecoglou prepares to name his side for the upcoming make-or-break World Cup qualifiers against Syria, a trio of Caltex Socceroos were in English Championship action this morning.
But a key man in Ange's plans sat out his side's latest victory.
IT'S ALL WRIGHT FOR BAILEY
Bailey Wright has led Bristol City to an impressive 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers.
The Caltex Socceroos defender and City skipper marshalled a defence which kept a clean-sheet, while Famara Diedhiou and Aden Flint scored either side of the break.
The win lifts City to seventh on the ladder.
SCORE-DRAW FOR MASS
Massimo Luongo's QPR have needed a late equaliser to snatch a point in their latest outing.
The in-form Australian midfielder played a full part in QPR's 1-1 draw away at Barnsley and was booked in the first half.
Luke Freeman's 87th minute goal earned Rangers a second successive draw which sees them remain 14th on the table.
LATE HEARTBREAK FOR IRVINE'S HULL
Jackson Irvine played a full 90 minutes for Hull City in their 2-1 home loss to Preston North End.
The visitors opened the scoring after 37 minutes through Tom Barkhuizen before Jarrod Bowen equalised early in the second half.
But substitute Callum Robinson's late winner gave Preston all three points, leaving Hull 17th on the ladder.
NO MILE, NO PROBLEM FOR VILLA
Mile Jedinak wasn't in Aston Villa's match-day squad as he continues his race against time to be fit for the Caltex Socceroos' clashes with Syria.
But in his absence through an ongoing groin problem, Villa had their most impressive victory of the season, winning 4-0 at Burton Albion with Ghanaian midfielder Albert Adomah netting a brace.
The win - a third straight for Jedinak's side - lifts Villa to eighth on the Championship table.
