It was an unhappy night for Mat Ryan and Aaron Mooy in the English Premier League, with the Caltex Socceroos duo both suffering defeats.
Ryan was between the posts as Brighton and Hove Albion suffered a 2-0 loss at home to Leicester City, with Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy netting late goals for the Foxes.
Glenn Murray had earlier missed a chance to fire Brighton ahead, failing to convert from the penalty spot in the 77th minute.
The loss leaves the Seagulls in 13th spot on the EPL ladder.
Elsewhere, Aaron Mooy got through a full 90 minutes but was unable to prevent Huddersfield from falling to a 1-0 loss away to Newcastle United.
Ayoze Perez netted the only goal of the game with 10 minutes remaining.
The Terriers remain in 16th spot on the table and just three points above the relegation zone.
