Middlesbrough defender Riggott: Emnes needed that goal

Middlesbrough defender Chris Riggott was pleased to see Marvin Emnes get on the scoresheet in their FA Cup win over Wolves.

The defender said: "He's obviously quick. I don't know whether he's as fast as the likes of Theo Walcott and Gabby Agbonlahor, they really are out of the top drawer, but he's no mug in that respect.

"We have paid a few quid for him, so let's hope he can produce the goods.

"He just looks a little short of confidence at the moment. Perhaps if he shaves all that hair off, he could go a bit quicker!"
