Boro boss Graham Westley is confident Lawrie Wilson will come back a better player following the horrific injury he sustained against Rushden & Diamonds.
The 21-year-old was scythed down by Rushden full-back Michael Corcoran, breaking his leg in three places and dislocating his ankle.
But Westley has been impressed with how Wilson has taken the injury in his stride and believes the former Charlton trainee will learn a great deal from the experience.
"He has been great - he is quite philosophical about it and has accepted that these types of things happen," Westley told The Comet.

"He has analysed why he went with that foot to flick the ball round and he will learn a lot having taken the hit and he will come back a better player."
Westley revealed that Wilson has already been making plans how he can contribute off the pitch during his lay-off and revealed that the midfielder will be taking on some scouting duties during his recovery.
