Middlesbrough grab late victory
November 22, 2014
Middlesbrough had the midfield to thank on a mid autumn afternoon against Premier League giants Manchester City. Goalkeeper Jason Steele suffered the ignominy of scoring a calamitous own goal in the fourth minute. From there things started to look bad for the visiting side. Winger Emmanuel Ledesma then equalized for Boro in the 54th minute with a very precise strike from range. Later on Matthew Briggs scored what proved to be the winner in the 76th minute.
Nobody was expecting Boro to win but if you remember the history of the two clubs, back in 08 City got embarrassed after a 8-1 loss. With this win Boro are now in 11th and City drop down to 4th.
