Everton defender Sylvain Distin says the return to full fitness of Darron Gibson is a big boost.
"He hasn't played for a while now, nearly three months, so he did well," he told evertonfc.com. "His passing seems to be sharp so I think he's doing good.
"I think we've missed him. He's really important in our squad and we don't have a big squad, so obviously if we can get a player back that will be beneficial."
