John Pantsil returns in reserves match for Fulham

The Fulham reserves  played a 1 - 1 tie tonight against Wolves. The bigger news was the return of John Pantsil to action. According to the Fulhamfc.com article"Reserves 1-1 Wolves" , Pantsil was given a warm welcome by the Fulham fans.

John Pantsil has been out since December with a knee injury. He got injured in the second half against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Before he left that match with an injury in the second half, Fulham were beating Chelsea 1 - 0. After he left the match, Fulham gave up 2 goals and lost the match 2 - 1. I really appreciated the job Pantsil was doing that day against Drogba. Pantsil was having a nice season up to the injury, and was very solid at right back.  I am glad to see him on the way back.

Also, according to the Fulhamfc.com article "Reserves 1 - 1 Wolves" ,  people in attendance gave him applause once he left the match in the 60 minute mark. Again, this is great news for Fulham as hopefully Pantsil is close to a first team return. In my opinion, in his absence, Chris Baird and Stephen Kelly at different times have done a solid job at right back.
