Caltex Socceroos midfielder Jackson Irvine has continued his excellent form in the English Championship, setting up a goal in Hull City’s demolition of Ipswich Town on Wednesday morning (AEDT).
Irvine provided the assist for the opening on 18 minutes, finding Markus Henriksen who fired in an unstoppable shot from just outside the box.
Further goals to Harry Wilson and Jarrod Bowen either side of the break capped off a comfortable 3-0 win for the Tigers at Portman Roar.
Irvine, who was substituted with 10 minutes left, has been one of Hull’s best players of late and scored in their 4-3 win over Norwich at the weekend.
The win has helped Hull pull further away from the relegation zone, now in 17th position and nine points clear of the bottom three.
Elsewhere, it was an all-Caltex Socceroos battle at Villa Park as Mile Jedinak’s in-form Aston Villa hosted Massimo Luongo’s QPR.
And it was the visitors who came away with a shock 3-1 win thanks to goals from Ryan Manning, Jake Bidwell and Luke Freeman.
Both Aussie midfielders played the full 90 minutes for their sides but it was Luongo who enjoyed bragging rights for a sensational display in the middle of the park.
While Villa remains in third spot on the Championship table, they are now seven points off the automatic promotion places with nine games to go.
QPR, who are unbeaten in their last three rematches, are in 15th position.
