On this day in 2003, we held our nerve to secure our passage to the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup after prevailing on penalties against Everton at the Riverside.
Boro’s League Cup campaign this season has already seen us claim two penalty shoot-out triumphs against Notts County and Preston, and this was our first of two on our way to reaching the final and lifting our first piece of silverware in 2004 - the second in the next round against Tottenham Hotspur.
Nothing could separate ourselves and Everton in 90 minutes and extra-time, forcing the fourth round tie to be decided from 12 yards.
Michael Ricketts, Boudewijn Zenden, Danny Mills, Massimo Maccarone and Gaizka Mendieta successfully converted their penalties for Boro.
Mark Schwarzer denied Leon Osman, leaving Mendieta to roll his spot kick into the bottom left corner past Nigel Martyn to book a place in the last eight.
