Caltex Socceroos midfielder Massimo Luongo has helped Queens Park Rangers to a stunning upset in the English Championship overnight.
Luongo got through a full 90 minutes as Rangers upset second-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers at Loftus Road.
The Aussie played a crucial role in the victory, setting up Conor Washington for his side’s opening goal just before the break.
Wolves’ Leo Bonatini equalised just two-minutes later but substitute Matt Smith netted with less than 10 minutes remaining to hand QPR a much-needed victory.
The win leaves Rangers in 14th spot on the Championship table.
Elsewhere, Bailey Wright played a full game as Bristol City secured a crucial 2-1 win over struggling Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
Goals in either half to Bobby Reid and substitute Milan Duric handed the Robins a much-needed three points following last week’s 3-0 loss to Leeds United.
The victory leaves City in fourth spot in the league.
Jackson Irvine came on at half-time but couldn’t prevent Hull City from falling to a 3-2 loss at home to Nottingham Forrest.
