Fulham boss Jol: Ruiz return a big boost

Fulham boss Martin Jol welcomed the return of Bryan Ruiz for their draw with Southampton.

Fulham boss Martin Jol welcomed the return of Bryan Ruiz for their draw with Southampton.

The Costa Rican had shaken off a hamstring injury sustained against Sunderland in mid-November to earn a place on the bench.

“You saw when Bryan Ruiz came on that he made a difference,” stated Jol. “He links our midfield and our attack. He wasn’t fit to start but hopefully he can on Saturday against Swansea City and hopefully Mahamadou Diarra can as well. I was very happy at half-time that I could bring Bryan on but it was not enough.”
