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.
In the Championship, Tim Cahill was introduced in the 83rd minute as Millwall secured a 2-0 win at home to Bristol City.
James Meredith got through a full 90 minutes for the Lions while Bailey Wright was an unused sub for Bristol.
In another all-Aussie battle, Jackson Irvine’s Hull City thrashed Massimo Luongo’s QPR 4-0 at KCOM Stadium.
Luongo got through a full 90 minutes for the visitors while Irvine was introduced off the bench for the final 30 minutes.
