Socceroos star Mooy stretchered off in Huddersfield win

Aaron Mooy centre is key to Huddersfield's survival fight

Mooy had his head in his hands as he was taken off but fears of a serious injury for the Australia midfielder ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation have been allayed, with British broadcaster BT Sport saying it was a deep cut.

This time Mounie was the scorer, rising above Bournemouth's defenders to head in Mooy's inswinging free-kick after Lewis Cook had brought down Jonathan Hogg.

But it could come at a heavy cost with the Socceroo midfielder set to be sidelined.

Mooy, 27, has been the Terriers top performer this season as they battle to stay up.

Socceroos fans will be holding their breath that Mooy has not suffered long term damage ahead of the Russia World Cup.

After the game Wagner said: "We have to wait".

"He has a cut over his knee".

But no such criticism could be levelled at Mounie, who finished expertly with 24 minutes to go to effectively end Bournemouth's chances, with Rajiv van La Parra's late penalty wrapping things up to lift Huddersfield - who lost Aaron Mooy to a potentially serious knee injury late on - out of the relegation zone.

"We should look as hungry, if not hungrier than them - that's no excuse for us".

"We needed a few minutes at the start where Bournemouth were strong but after that we played superb football".

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner hopes that his side can climb up the Premier League table after picking up a "huge" victory over Bournemouth on Sunday.

Steve Cook then scored an own goal from Mounie's deflected shot with just under 25 minutes to play.
