Caltex Socceroos keeper Mat Ryan helped Brighton to their first points of the Premier League season while Aaron Mooy continued his impressive start with Huddersfield town overnight.
RYAN’S CLEANSHEET FOR BRIGHTON
In positive signs ahead of Australia’s upcoming World Cup Qualifiers, Ryan was relatively untroubled as Brighton were held to 0-0 draw away to a 10-man Watford.
Watford were reduced to 10 men midway through the first half with Miguel Britos shown a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Anthony Knockaert.
Brighton looked to take advantage of their extra man and went close to breaking the deadlock with Tomer Hemed striking the post.
The visitors dictated proceedings in the second stanza but failed to beat Hornets keeper Heurelho Gomes as they were forced to settle for a scoreless draw.

MOOY’S HUDDERSFIELD STAY UNBEATEN
Aaron Mooy’s impressive start to his maiden Premier League season continued after helping Huddersfield Town to a hard-fought 0-0 draw at home to Southampton.
The Socceroo played another 90 minutes for the hosts as they maintained their unbeaten start to the EPL season, keeping their third consecutive clean sheet in the process.
In a free-flowing encounter, both sides created chances at the John Smith’s Stadium with Elias Kachunga, Steve Mounie and Tom Ince all going close for Huddersfield in the first half.
Mooy put in another impressive shift for the hosts and could have put his side ahead with 20 minutes remaining only for his powerful strike to be well-blocked by Maya Yoshida.
The 0-0 draw leaves Huddersfield on seven points from their opening three matches and they sit second on the EPL ladder behind Manchester United.
