It was an unhappy night for Caltex Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy with his Huddersfield Town outfit falling to struggling Swansea City in the English Premier League on Sunday (AEST).
The Aussie star was introduced at half time for David Wagner’s outfit but couldn’t prevent his side suffering a 2-0 loss to the Welsh club.
Tammy Abraham scored both goals as Swansea City recorded their first home win in the Premier League this season.
The Welsh club had lost three from three in front of their own fans but benefited from two fortunate breaks to pick up a much-needed victory that lifts them out of the relegation zone.
A shocking pass from goalkeeper Jonas Lossl allowed Tom Carroll to set up Abraham for the game’s first goal in the 42nd minute.
Mooy's sliding tackle inadvertently teed up the striker's second early in the second half, Abraham tapping home from virtually on the line to take his tally for the campaign to five in all competitions.
The loss leaves Huddersfield without a victory in six matches and they have now failed to score in four consecutive games in all competitions.
In the Championship, Massimo Luongo played a full game for QPR as they were held to a 1-1 draw away to struggling Sunderland.
Earlier, Bailey Wright got through 90 minutes for Bristol City in their scoreless draw at home to Burton Albion.
