Last updated : 08 January 2004 By Jessica Porter
Former Burnley centre back Drissa has been ruled out since September where he collided with fellow centre back Georges Santos which required the Guniea international to have surgery to correct ligament damage.

Today he returned to action in a friendly match, and Town boss Joe Royle admits he was pleased with what he saw: "Drissa played the first-half and did everything we hoped he would. He showed no reaction to the knee problem he's had and will be in action again next week for the Reserves." he told the Official Club Website.
