Wright's Bristol knock Mooy-less Huddersfield out of FA Cup


Premier League strugglers Huddersfield Town crashed out of the FA Cup on Sunday (AEDT) following a 1-0 loss to Bailey Wright's Bristol City.

The Socceroos defender captained the side from the centre of defence and held firm to deny the Terriers at Ashton Gate Stadium.

A tightly contested affair found life midway through the second half courtesy of Josh Brownhill’s 72nd-minute strike and Huddersfield, playing without star midfielder Aaron Mooy, were unable to conjure a response.

David Wagner's men were not the only Premier League side to suffer elimination on Sunday, with Cardiff City also dumped by League One outfit Gillingham.

Elliott List's effort nine minutes from time was enough to send Neil Warnock's strong side packing.

Meanwhile each of the top six Premier League sides came through unscathed, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all easing to victories.

As did Brighton and Hove Albion, West Ham, Everton and Crystal Palace, who all booked their place in the next round, with the Seagulls winning at top-flight rivals Bournemouth 3-1 after a quickfire first-half double.

West Ham, Everton and Palace were less assured, with the Hammers waiting until stoppage time for an emotional Andy Carroll to add to Marko Arnautovic's opener in a 2-0 win over Birmingham City.

Marco Silva's Toffees netted early through Ademola Lookman and Bernard but could not increase their lead, settling for a 2-1 victory at home to Lincoln City.

Palace left it late, scoring through Jordan Ayew in the 86th minute as Grimsby Town, who played with 10 men for 88 minutes, were beaten at Selhurst Park.
