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.

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