Caltex Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy has provided another assist as Huddersfield drew 1-1 with Barnsley in the Championship this morning (AEDT)
t was Mooy’s pinpoint corner which helped the Terriers take the lead on 18 minutes, as defender Michael Hefele got on the end of it to divert the ball into the top corner.
But Town was unable to hold on to secure all three points as Marley Watkins levelled for the home side 15 minutes from time.
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.
With Jedinak providing a great defensive shield in midfield, Villa knocked off promotion-chasing Derby County 1-0 thanks to James Chester’s first-half goal.
Elsewhere, defender Bailey Wright was involved in a four-goal thriller against league-leaders Newcastle United at St James Park.
Wright played a full match as City shocked the home side to lead 2-0 at the break.
But the Toon Army roared home after the break to score twice and escape with a 2-2 draw. The result has seen City move two points clear of the relegation zone, while Newcastle United has dropped to second spot.
