Boro bag top spot


Adam Forshaw celebrates Boro’s second goal

A late winner sends Boro top of the table.

With thanks to the hero of the night, Adam Forshaw, the Riverside Stadium erupted into a scene of roars and emotion.

“I was beginning to doubt that we would get the three points out of this match, but when Forshaw scored the place blew up,” Boro fan,Mark Williams said.

After a promising start, with an early goal from Nsue, Boro looked likely to have another three points in the bag.

All that changed after half time when Reading’s Simon Cox, bagged the Royals an equaliser.

After that the game looked likely to end in a draw, after Middlesbrough struggled to get their second goal.

As added time arrived, the stadium crowd began to descend, many disappointed as they thought Boro had failed to win their game-in-hand, which would have sent them top of Championship.

All that changed in the 94th minute, when with virtually the last kick of the game, Adam Forshaw managed to scramble the ball into the back of the net, finally getting Boro their second goal, but most importantly, getting, considerably three of the most important points of the season so far.

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka said: “All of them deserve to be in this position.”

“I cannot be prouder than I am of them at this moment.

“I felt when Adam scored that we are together and the crowd was amazing.”

Forshaw’s priceless injury time winner  fired Boro into the top position and it was clear to see how much it meant to Boro and their twelfth man.

Mark Williams, a Boro fan for over 40 years, said: “The most important thing is we got the three point and we’re top of league.”

“We need to keep the pressure on Burnley and Birghton and continue on top form for this final push”.

With only five games left of the season, Teesside is hoping Boro can stay in their strong form and win the race to the Premier League.
