Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy has helped Huddersfield Town to their best start to a season in 64 years with the Terriers moving to the top off the English Football League table following a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton.

Mooy, who is on loan from Manchester City following his move from A-League club Melbourne City earlier this month, has been an ever-present for Huddersfield who've yet to taste defeat in the league this season ahead of the two-week international break.

Massimo Luongo's QPR sit in fifth spot after a 1-0 win at Wigan on Saturday, thanks to a Nedum Onuoha strike in the second half.

Like Mooy, Luongo has played every game this season and the pair will fly out to Perth on Sunday to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers against Iraq on Thursday and the UAE in Dubai on September 7.

Another Socceroo to enjoy a great start to the season is Burton Albion striker Jackson Irvine who headed home the winning goal for the division's smallest club against local rivals Derby County on Friday.

The Melburnian pounced in the first half for the third time this season to secure the victory in the first competitive encounter between the two teams with Burton only securing Football League status in 2009.

Mile Jedinak endured a debut to forget for Aston Villa after being substituted 11 minutes from time in his new club's 3-1 defeat at Bristol City.

Villa have won just once this season and sit in 12th spot on the table following last season ignominious relegation from the Premier League.

Young Socceroos left-back Callum Elder, who is impressing on a season-long loan at Brentford from EPL champions Leicester, helped the Bees pick up a point in a 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

The 21-year-old is yet to receive an international call-up but his regular strong performances could start to put pressure on Brad Smith, who was once against an unused substitute in Bournemouth's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

Smith has yet to feature in the EPL this year since moving from Liverpool, but he and Socceroos teammate Adam Federici did help a second-string Cherries team to a 2-1 win in the EFL Cup against Morecombe last Wednesday.

In the Scottish Premier League, former Central Coast Mariner Tomi Rogic curled in a fine free-kick to help Celtic brush aside Aberdeen 4-1 at Parkhead and move to the top of the table.
