Leeds United defender Rui Marques completed his first ninety minutes for the club on Monday in a behind closed door friendly since damaging his Achilles at Colchester in August.
Marques was partnered at the centre of defence by Argentine trialist Walter Garcia.
Reserve team manager Neil Thompson speaking on the official website said “Rui came through fine which is important and it was good to see him back”.
Leeds lost the game 4-3 against Middlesbrough with Davide Somma scoring two of the Leeds goals.
The Angolan international will find it hard to break back into the side with Richard Naylor and Patrick Kisnorbo forming a strong partnership at the back in his absence.
