Southampton midfielder Jake Hesketh scored the winning goal for Burton Albion in their 1-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final win against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday night, and Saints fans were quick to react.

The 22-year-old joined the League One outfit on a loan deal until the beginning of January during the summer transfer window and has made a positive impression, scoring three goals and providing one assist in 20 appearances to date.
