Caltex Socceroos star Aaron Mooy has learned who he’ll face on the opening day of the EFL Championship 2019/20 season with Huddersfield Town.

The Terriers – relegated from the Premier League last campaign after two years in the top flight - will host Derby County at The John Smith’s Stadium on August 5.

Mooy, 28, has spent the past three seasons with Huddersfield, having initially joined the club on loan from Manchester City in 2016.
