Meyler marked his return to the starting line-up by scoring in the 3-0 win over Ipswich last Tuesday and followed up by netting the opener with a tidy finish on Saturday.
He tweeted: “Great to get another home win today. Lads were brilliant Nice to get another goal.”
Alan Judge is the most in-form Irish player outside the Premier League at present and his latest sparkling display inspired Brentford to a 3-0 win at Charlton.
Judge made the first and the third goals and exquisitely curled home the second himself to secure the points.
Alan McCormack, Judge’s Brentford team-mate and fellow Irishman, was quick to pay tribute. McCormack said: “Judgey’s a step above everybody; he’s brewing with confidence. Going away with the Ireland team has helped him because he’s come back from that and stepped up a level.”
While Lee Carsley was celebrating Hull’s third win on the bounce, it was a frustrating day for the Championship’s other Irish managers as Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich dropped two points after conceding a late equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest while Chris Hughton’s Brighton were held to a goalless draw by Preston.
Paddy Madden is now the leading marksman in League One after his brace – which took his tally to nine for the season – helped Scunthorpe to a 3-0 win at Chesterfield.
Aiden O’Brien also doubled up; his goals earning Millwall a 2-1 win at Sheffield United.
Millwall boss Neil Harris said: “The biggest compliment I can give Aiden is that he never stands still. He is always on the move, such an important quality in a striker.”
Owen Garvan was one of eight different scorers as Colchester drew 4-4 at home to Walsall while Stephen McLaughlin scored as Southend drew1-1 at Gillingham.
