Bailey Wright’s Bristol City have strengthened their EPL promotion hopes with another win, while a trio of Caltex Socceroos midfielders all played 90 minutes in the Championship overnight.
Wright, the Bristol City skipper, led his side to a 2-0 win over Reading thanks to second half goals from Jamie Paterson and Lloyd Kelly.
The win sees the Robins jump up to second spot on the ladder, which would mean automatic promotion to the Premier League should they be there at the end of the campaign.
It also continues a dream week for the Caltex Socceroos defender which included a win over EPL giants Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.
And Bristol could close the gap and league-leaders Wolves when the two sides meet at Ashton Gate on the weekend.
Wolves dropped two points themselves overnight with Aussie James Meredith helping Millwall secure a 2-2 draw with the Championship leaders.
Meredith got through a full game as his side snatched a point at the Den thanks to Jake Cooper’s 72nd minute equaliser.
Elsewhere, both Massimo Luongo and Jackson Irvine had to settle for goalless draws in their clashes.
Luongo’s QPR came away from Ipswich with a valuable point, while Irvine and Hull City continued their recent resurgence by getting a draw against in-form Derby County.
And Caltex Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak also got through the full 90 minutes for Aston Villa as they went down 2-1 at Brentford.
