Aaron Mooy, Huddersfield Town news: Socceroos midfielder stars again in Championship
SOCCEROOS midfielder Aaron Mooy has again been lavished with praise after he put in another man-of-the-match display for Huddersfield Town.
Defeating Nottingham Forest 2-1 in the EFL Championship, the come-from-behind result pushed Huddersfield into fourth spot, seven points behind leaders Newcastle United.
Throughout the game, Mooy was everywhere and unlucky not to score at the half hour mark as Hudderfield sought an equaliser.

They had gone behind in the 25th minute when former Arsenal man Nicklas Bendtner made Huddersfield pay, but Mooys role in the centre of the park had fans purring, and not for the first time.
As the Aussie continued to dominate the game, Huddersfield found an equaliser in the 53rd minute through Kyle Palmer.

Mooy crossed a short corner for Palmer, whose header came back off the bar, who then forced the ball home after a scramble in the box.
Huddersfield kept up the pressure and won it in the 59th minute with a goal which had an element of good fortune about it.
Van La Parra was attempting a cross when Forest defender Michael Mancienne slid in to block, but only succeeded in deflecting the ball into his own net.
[Mooy] is the best player I have seen in 40 plus years watching Town, said one fan post-game, while another revelled in his physics-defying ability to spray the ball around with precision.
Fans en masse voted Mooy as the player of the game, giving him an 8.8 out of 10 rating in the Huddersfield Examiner, with the next best player getting a 7.4 score.
