Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper Mat Ryan has helped Brighton and Hove Albion continue their unbeaten run in the English Premier League overnight.
The shot-stopper put in another excellent display in goals for Chris Hughton’s side as they cruised to a 4-1 win over Swansea City at home.
Glenn Murray netted a brace for the hosts, while second-half goals to Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia put the stamp on a dominant victory.
Ryan was tested midway through the first half with the Aussie showing great reactions to deny a deflected long-range effort from Mike van der Hoorn.
The 25-year-old was again called upon early in the second half with the custodian diving at full stretch to stop a powerful strike from Ki Sung-yueng.
Swansea did net a consolation with five minutes remaining with Tammy Abraham’s shot from distance wickedly deflecting past a wrong-footed Ryan.
Ryan’s side extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four matches, winning two of their last three fixtures.
The win lifts the Seagulls to 12th spot on the table and four points clear of the relegation zone.
