Mohamed's return to AFC Wimbledon is good news for Porter
Neal Ardley has hailed the arrival of Kaid Mohamed as the key to unlocking George Porter’s true potential.
Former Dons favourite Mohamed rejoined AFC Wimbledon on a month’s loan from Port Vale and played a starring role in Saturday’s 4-0 demolition of Portsmouth.
While the former south coast giants put the shackles on the in-form winger Porter, Mohamed took advantage.
Now, armed with a double pronged attack, Ardley believes there is less pressure on 21-year-old Porter.
Ardley said: “Portsmouth did an excellent job on George, who has been a constant threat over the last few weeks, and having Kaid on that other side has given us an attack from another angle.
“A lot more of our play went down the left on Saturday. It’s good because if they feel they’ve got one side shut down and they can stop us, we have better options down the other side.”
Mohamed played almost the full 90 minutes on Saturday before being withdrawn to rapturous applause.
“He is a fit athletic boy and he gave us a great option. I didn’t have a problem playing him for that length of time.
“He had started to fatigue a little towards the end, and when we got the second goal, we decided to bring him off and not risk an injury,” Ardley added.
