Caltex Socceroos duo Mat Ryan and Aaron Mooy couldn’t be split as Brighton and Huddersfield played out an entertaining 1-1 draw in the English Premier League overnight.
Both goals came in the opening half with a horror error from Huddersfield keeper Jonas Lossl gifting the Seagulls the lead on 29 minutes.
But their advantage lasted less than three minutes after a shocking back-pass from Shane Duffy allowed Steve Mounie to equalise for the Terriers.
Brighton were reduced to 10-men following a straight red-card to Davy Propper with 15 minutes remaining but Huddersfield couldn’t capitalise as the game ended all square.
Mooy completed 90 minutes for the Terriers and forced Ryan into a save in the dying minutes with a strike from distance.
The result leaves Brighton in 13th spot on the EPL table, while Huddersfield remain in 16th spot, four points above the relegation zone.
