Australian goalkeeper Adam Federici made his competitive debut for Stoke City as they knocked Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield Town out of the League Cup with a 2-0 win overnight.
Federici has been back-up to Jack Butland since his off-season move from Bournemouth to Stoke but was handed his maiden start and kept a clean sheet.
The Stoke City website wrote: "Adam Federici, making his first competitive start for the Club, was a relative bystander, but showed good hands to deny Laurent Depoitre from distance on two occasions."
Mooy was introduced as a 69th minute substitute as Town got on top late, with the Socceroo setting up a chance for Isaac Mbenza which Federici saved.
