Mooy played another full 90 minutes for Huddersfield, while fellow Aussie Ryan Williams was a late substitute for Barnsley.
Caltex Socceroo skipper Mile Jedinak got through another 90 minutes in his second match back from a groin injury as Aston Villa recorded a vital win.

Wright played a full match as City shocked the home side to lead 2-0 at the break.
