Mido warms up

Mido played 70 minutes and scored a penalty in the development team's 2-1 loss at home to Huddersfield Town on Monday.

 

The visitors scored after 20 seconds and 20 minutes and won despite Mido winning a scoring a second half spot-kick.

 

The Egyptian striker returned to training last week following a hamstring injury that put him out for ten weeks. The 29-year-old was more than ten years older than all of his team-mates and came up against two experience centre-backs in Huddersfield's Joel Lynch and Tom Clarke.

 

Mido displayed some excellent passing and flicks and could have had more than one goal.He was denied by a good save after excellent work by Jordan Clarke and Matty Stead then hit the bar after the break with a deflected cross from the left.

 

Mido also produced a fine pass to release Rhys Oates who rounded the goalkeeper but fired wide from a very tight angle. Oates later missed a one-on-one after outmuscling a defender.

 

Stead had missed a fine chance to level when the score was 1-0 while Huddersfield could have been down to ten men after wild two-footed challenge on Brad Kilburn.
