Caltex Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy has helped Huddersfield Town stay alive in the FA Cup after a dramatic fourth round replay with Birmingham City on Wednesday (AEDT).
Mooy started for the Terriers as they came from a goal down against the Championship strugglers to win 4-1 after extra-time.
While the final scoreline makes it look like a comfortable win for David Wagner’s men, it was anything but with only a Marc Roberts own goal ensuring Town got back on level terms at St Andrews.
But in extra-time Huddersfield’s – and Mooy’s – superior class shone through.
The Australian playmaker had a hand in Huddersfield’s second and third goals, playing key passes for goals to Steve Mounie and Rajiv van La Parra.
Tom Ince rounded out the scoring for Huddersfield as they moved into the fifth round and a glamour home tie with Manchester United.
While Mooy’s Huddersfield progressed, James Meredith’s Millwall were dumped out by lower-league opposition.
The Lions lost 1-0 to Rochdale at Crown Oil Arena, with Ian Henderson’s goal early in the second half enough for the League One outfit.
Millwall’s exit not only means that Tim Cahill won’t get a chance to play in the FA Cup again but there’s now just four Caltex Socceroos left in the competition.
Jackson Irvine’s Hull City travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea, Maty Ryan’s Brighton and Hove Albion host Coventry City, while Callum Elder’s Wigan face a huge task against Manchester City.
The fifth round ties will be played on the weekend of February 17-18.
