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.
Second-half goals to Joel Lynch and Matt Smith secured the three points for Ian Holloway’s side.
Luongo was involved in a key moment in the 54th minute, with Bolton defender Mark Little shown a straight red-card for a mistimed tackle on the Aussie midfielder.
The win keeps QPR in 15th spot on the Championship table.
Elsewhere, Tim Cahill was introduced off the bench with five minutes remaining as Millwall grabbed a 1-0 win away to Birmingham City.
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.
