Mooy's Huddersfield earn valuable point against Southampton

Caltex Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy helped Huddersfield Town earn a point in a hard-fought draw with Southampton in the English Premier League on Sunday (AEDT).

The Aussie midfielder got through a full game at St Mary’s as Town were forced to come from a goal down to secure a 1-1 draw.

Mooy had a great chance to score early on but his powerful strike was well blocked by Saints defender Steven Davis.

Southampton continued to ride their luck before taking the lead through Charlie Austin on 24 minutes, with the striker pouncing on a loose ball from a corner.  

But Huddersfield weren’t to be denied with Laurent Depoitre burying a clinical header just past the hour mark to level proceedings at 1-1.

Both sides had chances to win the game as the second half progressed but failed to convert as the contest finished all square.

Huddersfield have now picked up four points from their last two away fixtures, the same amount as they accrued through their first eight away games.

Mooy’s side sit in 11th on the EPL ladder ahead of Wednesday’s home clash with Stoke City.
