Caltex Socceroos midfielder Massimo Luongo has found the net to seal QPR’s crucial 3-1 win over Burton Albion in the Championship on Sunday morning (AEDT).
Luongo, who got through another full shift for Rangers, scored the final goal three minutes from time to seal a valuable three points for Ian Holloway’s side.
The visitors attacked down the left before Luongo combined with Conor Washington before the Aussie slammed his shot home through a glut of Albion bodies.
It was 1-1 at the break as Aramide Oteh's opener was cancelled out by Burton’s Lloyd Dyer soon after.
Washington and Luongo then capitalised on QPR’s dominance with goals in the last 20 minutes.
The win has seen QPR jump to 14th spot ahead of a clash against Middlesbrough next weekend.
Elsewhere, Bailey Wright’s Bristol City suffered a blow in their promotion push after losing 1-0 at home against Norwich.
Wright, whose Robins lost 2-1 to Manchester City in the semi-final of the League Cup in midweek, conceded 11 minutes from the end to drop vital points.
James Maddison scored the winner for the visitors.
Despite the loss, Bristol City remain fifth and in the playoff spots and take on second-placed Derby in their next match.
Meanwhile, Jackson Irvine started again for Hull City as they were held to a goalless draw at home against Reading.
Irvine was substituted on 65 minutes with his side unable to manufacture a winner late on to remain just one point above the Championship drop zone.
And left-back James Meredith played another 90 minutes as Millwall played out a 1-1 draw with Preston North End at The Den.
Aiden O’Brien scored for Millwall in the first half only for Preston to snatch a point thanks to Callum Robinson’s 80th minute reply.
