Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ – Barnsley FC 0-1 Huddersfield Town – npower Championship

As Barnsley’s manager Keith Hill suggested before the game that Mido could be able to come on and do a 20-30-minute cameo, Mido did come on in the 63rd minute for his official Barnsley debut. He was a little bit excited and enthusiastic as he went straight in the referee’s book for a foul on Sean Scannell. Mido didn’t have an impact on the game in which Barnsley lost 0-1 to Huddersfield Town at home, however he had a good run for over 25 minutes on his way to regaining his match fitness. Barnsley now lie 21st in the table, two points from relegation zone.

Ahmed Elmohamady – Cardiff City 2-1  – npower Championship

passed a late fitness test and played the full 90 minutes in the Tiger’s 1-2 defeat against Cardiff City. Elmo had a decent display but couldn’t help his side overcome the two-goal deficit. Robert Koren scored a late consolation from Aron Gunnarsson assist but Cardiff held on for the win. Hull City remains in the play-off zone in 4th place.
