Boro skipper on way back

Middlesbrough's season has received another boost with the news that skipper Rhys Williams should be back in action early next month.

The Australian international has been sidelined ever since suffering ankle ligament damage during the Capital One Cup victory at Gillingham back in August.

"I think Rhys should be about four weeks," manager Tony Mowbray told the Evening Gazette. "I'm looking forward to having him back. He looks in good fettle. He looks fit, he looks lean.

"He's a huge player for us, largely because of the versatility he will bring to our squad."
