Aaron Mooy had a mixed day at the office for Huddersfield Town, having a penalty attempt saved but setting up Town’s first and last goal in a 3-2 win over Preston North End.

It was a vital result for Huddersfield as they continue their quest for automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Bailey Wright and Massimo Luongo faced off in the Championship where Wright’s Bristol City beat QPR 2-1.

New Zealander Chris Wood had an up and down week with Leeds United, scoring a 95th-minute goal to secure a valuable 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on April 14.

But a few days later his hopes of playing in the Premier League with Leeds next season took a turn for the worse as they suffered a 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Over in Scotland Tom Rogic assisted Celtic’s first goal in a 2-2 draw with Ross County, while Scott McDonald scored a goal and set another one up in a 4-2 win over Inverness CT.

In the Dutch Eredivisie in Holland, Ajdin Hrustic came off the bench with 15 minutes to go and scored his first goal for FC Groningen as they won 5-1 over All White Ryan Thomas’ PEC Zwolle side.

Brad Jones helped Feyenoord Rotterdam to a 2-0 victory over Utrecht.
