Ahmed Elmohamady

Loan watch: Ahmed on target

Elmo notches first goal in Elland Road win.

Sunderland loan star Ahmed Elmohamady played a vital role in Hull City’s 3-2 victory over Leeds United.

The Egyptian international opened the scoring for the Tigers in their first away win over United since 1987.

Elmohamady cancelled out Luciano Becchio’s seventh minute penalty to pull his side level, before teeing up Abdoulaye Faye with a sublime cross to assist in Hull’s second.

The winger continued to terrorise Leeds when he was given too much space to allow him to set up City’s third, when Robert Koren latched onto his cross to send the ball in the top right corner of Paddy Kenny’s goal.

Andy Gray nabbed a late consolation goal for the home side, however, it was Hull who took the three points back to the KC Stadium.

Over in League One, Craig Lynch was a second half substitute in Hartlepool United’s 5-0 defeat at the hands of Preston North End.

Elsewhere, young stopper Ben Wilson was an unused sub in Chesterfields seven-goal thriller with Accrington as the Spireites clinched a 4-3 victory.
