Caltex Socceroos star Mat Ryan has kept another clean sheet as Brighton and Hove Albion earned a hard-fought draw in the English Premier League on Wednesday (AEDT).
The Aussie shot-stopper made some crucial interventions as Brighton played out a 0-0 draw at home to bottom-placed Crystal Palace.
Ryan was called into action in the 13th minute when he produced a fine double-save to deny Christian Benteke and Wilfired Zaha in quick succession.
Glenn Murray went close to stealing the points late on for the hosts but his header was cleared off the line.
The 0-0 result saw Ryan keep a clean sheet for the third time in the last six league games.
The Seagulls have now drawn four consecutive matches at home and sit in 10th spot on the Premier League table.
Brighton next face Liverpool at home on Sunday morning (AEDT).
