Cardiff-born Mohamed is up against the Bluebirds.

* CARDIFF-BORN winger Kaid Mohamed will face his home city club for Cheltenham Town at their Whaddon Road Stadium tonight (7.45pm).

Ely boy Mohamed was a Welsh Cup winner with Carmarthen Town in 2007, when he netted the winner, while for the last three seasons his final match has been a high pressure situation with promotion the prize.

He fired Bath City's Conference South play-off final winning goal against Woking, while he was in AFC Wimbledon's team for their Conference play-off final success against Luton Town at Wembley Stadium at the end of 2010-11.

Having played his part in helping Wimbledon into the Football League, Mohamed signed for Cheltenham Town and returned to Wembley when they reached the League Two play-off final against Crewe.

Mohamed suffered heartbreak in that final as Crewe emerged 1-0 winners.

The former Newport County, Cwmbran Town, Llanelli and Carmarthen striker scored 11 goals in 45 League Two matches for Cheltenham last season and is enjoying life on the wing.

Mohamed began his football playing days with Trelai on the Cardiff parks.

He later played for Chalkie Whites Youth Club, Danescourt and then Taffs Well youth before joining Cwmbran Town.

Tonight, against Cardiff City, Mohamed is unlikely to figure in Cheltenham's starting line-up, but he'll be among the substitutes and itching to run at captain Mark Hudson and his fellow defenders.
