Thriller as Bailey Wright wins battle of the Caltex Socceroos at Hull
Bailey Wright won the battle of the Caltex Socceroos after a thrilling comeback win for his Bristol City side at Jackson Irvine's Hull overnight in the English Championship.
Hull City, featuring Caltex Socceroo Jackson Irvine in their starting XI, lost 3-2 to Wright’s side after Hull lead 2-0 at the break.
Both Caltex Socceroos played the full 90 minutes at the KCOM Stadium in a game that was decided in the 89th minute by Josh Brownhill of Bristol.
It was a classic game of two halves.
Goals from Bristol's Aden Flint, Bobby Reid and Brownhill enough to inflict a fabulous win courtesy of a second half comeback from 2-0 down at the break.
Irvine went close with a header in the first half before Bristol's second half onslaught heaped more pressure on the struggling Tigers.
Bristol City are fifth in the Championship and they host Middlesbrough next weekend.
