Caltex Socceroos pair Bailey Wright and Jackson Irvine all but confirmed their Championship survival as Bristol City and Burton Albion both notched crucial home wins overnight.
Wright’s Bristol twice came from behind to beat Barnsley 3-2 while Burton scored a quickfire double to see off Leeds United 2-1.
Trailing 2-1 after an hour, Bristol looked in most danger of leaving the door ajar for relegation rivals Blackburn Rovers.
The hosts proved their mettle with two goals in five minutes steering the Robins safely into 17th, six points clear of the drop zone.
Burton came up just as big at the Pirelli Stadium courtesy of two goals in as many second-half minutes from Marvin Sordell and Michael Kightly.
Irvine played a full 90 minutes to help the Brewers make it two from two following their midweek win at Birmingham.
Nigel Clough’s side are now level with Bristol on 51 points in a successful first season in England’s second tier.
