Socceroo defender on the comeback at Boro

In encouraging news for Ange Postecoglou, Socceroos defender Rhys Williams has made a successful return to the pitch for Middlesbrough under-21s overnight.

The injury-plagued 27-year-old got through the full 90 minutes in his first match in over a year as Boro went down 3-2 against Reading under-21s.
