Boro delighted to have Digard back

Digard has been out since February with an injury but returned for the reserves on Tuesday night.

“It’s great to see him back, I know he was on the bench on Saturday and was desperate to get on against Fulham but he was always pencilled in to play tonight,” reserve boss Martin Scott told the club’s official website.

“His touch looked good and he has worked really hard to get back, but he tired, which is to be expected.

“He needs games and he’ll only get that by playing at whatever level.”
