Mooy named in EFL team of the season

Huddersfield Town's on-loan minstrel has been the driving force behind the club's unlikely surge to the giddy peaks of the Championship.

Victory over sixth-placed Fulham at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday morning (AEST) - live on beIN SPORTS - will all but guarantee a play-off spot and Terriers fans are expecting more Mooy miracles in the final four games of the regular season - and beyond.

Fresh from adding the notch of being picked in the PFA's Championship Team of the Year to his belt, Mooy said: "Overall, this season has been unbelievable for us.

"I don't know how long it's been since the club were in this position but we need to continue doing the job in the remaining games and make sure we're in the playoffs-offs.

"We are pushing our limits to see how far we can go. We're taking nothing for granted because there's a lot of football still left to play."

Having already been named in the EFL and Championship Teams of the Year, Mooy said the PFA recognition meant more because the team was picked by his fellow pros.

"It's selected by people you play against each week and they see exactly how you play," he said.

"That's what makes it important ... I'm really proud to have got picked. it's a real honour."

Though a Wembley play-off victory would be the final confirmation of Mooy's - and fourth-placed Huddersfield's - glorious ascension from unfancied makeweights to  fairytale makers, he isn't buying into that vision - just yet.

"Wembley? I'm not even thinking about that all," he said. "The most important thing is to finish off the season strongly and Fulham will be a big test for us; they play good football and are right up there pushing, just like us."

He has the same mantra when quizzed over where he will be playing next season: in the EPL with the Terriers, perhaps back challenging for a first team place at parent club Manchester City, or somewhere new. Whatever the outcome, he appears destined for the top flight.

"I not really thinking about next year ... I am focused purely on Huddersfield at the moment," he said.

"I've never looked too far ahead and that hasn't changed."

Pressed if he might stay in Yorkshire were coach David Wagner's men to go up, he replied: "Yes, definitely, (it's possible) you never know what can happen.

"If Huddersfield go up it would be massive for the club and everybody in the town.

"But whatever happens will happen ... a lot of it's not in my hands."
