Middlesbrough fans revelling in win with jokes at Jordan Hugill

Middlesbrough eliminated Premier League opposition in the Carabao Cup with a beautiful strike from Lewis Wing deep into first-half stoppage-time.

Crystal Palace made the trip from south London to the north east for the Wednesday night English Football League clash at the Riverside Stadium that eventually saw Tony Pulis’ side come out 1-0 winners.

Victory moved Boro into the quarter-finals of the competition to tee up another home tie, this time with League One outfit Burton Albion in December.

Wing’s opener, and the only goal of the evening, came when the Eagles defence shut off for a split second calling for handball, leaving the 23-year-old midfielder to pick out the top corner of the net from outside the box.

As Boro players rushed to celebrate the goal, 26-year-old Hugill ran to the loose ball as it trundled back out of the net, only to smash it over the bar from yards out.

These Boro fans certainly found the funny side of the moment, and even Hugill joined in on the fun too.
