It was a mixed night for a trio of Caltex Socceroos in the English Championship with Massimo Luongo, Mile Jedinak and Tim Cahill all in action.
Luongo started for QPR and played the full 90 minutes as the Hoops secured a hard-fought 2-0 win at home to Bolton Wanderers.

Fred Onyedinma netted the decisive goal for the visitors with just under 15 minutes to play.
Fellow Aussie James Meredith played the full 90 minutes for Millwall.
Mile Jedinak got through 67 minutes as Aston Villa were beaten 2-0 away to Fulham.
Villa remain in third following the loss, two points behind second-placed Cardiff City.
