Caltex Socceroos keeper Mat Ryan has helped Brighton and Hove Albion to their first win of the English Premier League season overnight.
Ryan made a couple of crucial stops as Brighton recorded an impressive 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at home.
Pascal Gross was the star of the show, scoring the Seagulls' first goal since the club returned to the top flight for the first time in 34 years in the first half before adding a second just after the break.
Gross then turned provider for striker Tomer Hemed, who beat his marker to head home midway through the second half.
James Morrison set up a tense final 10 minutes by firing home, but the home defence stood firm to claim a precious three points.
Brighton are next in action in the EPL away to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.
