Caltex Socceroos midfielder Jackson Irvine was on the scoresheet as Hull City staged a remarkable comeback to defeat Norwich City in a seven-goal thriller in the English Championship overnight.
Irvine netted his side’s first goal as Hull claimed a pulsating come-from-behind 4-3 win at KCOM Stadium.
The Aussie netted the opener inside six minutes before a first-half hat-trick from Norwich’s James Maddison turned the contest on its head.
But goals either side of half-time to Abel Hernandez restored parity at 3-3 before Harry Wilson’s strike with 20 minutes remaining clinched a thrilling win for the hosts.
The win lifts Irvine’s side to 18th spot on the table, six points clear of the relegation zone.
Elsewhere, Mile Jedinak started and got through a full 90 minutes as Aston Villa stunned league-leaders Wolves 4-1 at Villa Park.

Meanwhile, Massimo Luongo and Bailey Wright both got through 90 minutes as QPR downed Sunderland and Bristol city drew with Burton Albion respectively.
Tim Cahill was introduced off the bench in the 87th minute in Millwall’s 1-0 win at home to Brentford.
