Ahmed Elmohamady

Loan watch: Elmo in action

Winning start for Ahmed.

Egyptian winger Ahmed Elmohamady impressed on his debut for Hull City.

Elmo sealed a loan move to join former SAFC boss Steve Bruce at the KC Stadium last week and was handed a start in Hull’s home victory over Bolton Wanderers.

The midfielder was at the heart of much of the Tigers’ attacking play and played the full 90 minutes of the game.

Owen Coyle’s Bolton took an early lead thanks to Chris Eagles, but Hull responded immediately with a Sone Aluko equaliser.

Two goals in three minutes early in the second half then condemned Bolton to their second defeat of the campaign.

Abdoulaye Faye headed Hull ahead before Hull’s other new signing Stephen Quinn added the third to seal the 3-1 win.
