Abdelhamid Sabiri has given Huddersfield Town a boost in their fight against relegation by returning to action in a youth game.
The 22-year-old broke his collarbone against Bournemouth in December last year after coming on as a substitute in the 75th minute but only lasted 180 seconds before suffering the injury.
Sabiri made his return for Huddersfield's Elite Development team in a losing effort against Scunthorpe United at PPG Canalside training ground.
The match saw Town go behind but they equalized through 17-year-old midfielder Jaheim Headley. Right back Demeaco Duhaney made it 3-2 but they eventually lost 4-2.
Sabiri looked lively throughout on his return and tested the Scunthorpe goalkeeper on more than one occasion. Since joining Huddersfield from Nürnberg in August 2017, Sabiri has made 13 appearances and contributed one assist.
Town are currently bottom of the Premier League with 11 points,14 away from survival and are yet to win a single game this year.
Due to that run, they parted company with David Wagner last month with Jan Siewert taking over eight days later.
After Newcastle they play Wolves, Brighton, Bournemouth and West Ham United.
