On this day in 2007, Boro fans were given a parting gift from one of the most talented strikers of the Riverside era.
Gareth Southgate's first season in charge came to a close against Fulham, our former captain steering Boro to a 12th-placed finish with a 3-1 victory.
The success of Southgate's side that season was often based on the goalscoring exploits of Australian striker Mark Viduka, and so it proved again against Fulham.
With five in his previous five games, netting against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Wigan Athletic, and two against Watford, Viduka was on a hot streak and recording the best numbers of his Boro career.
The Aussie hitman struck again here, twice in quick succession, demonstrating trademark fine footwork and powerful finishing. His brace fell either side of half-time and another on the scoresheet for Boro, an impressive header from defender David Wheater.
Simon Davies did hit one back for Fulham amid the same 13-minute glut of goals, but not enough to divert Boro off course from victory.
It proved to be Viduka's Boro swansong. To the dismay of many of its fans, the club were unable to convince the forward to extend his stay on Teesside, and he left to join neighbours Newcastle on the expiration of his contract that summer.
Viduka never truly reached his Boro heights with the Magpies, the final club of his career as injuries took their toll, although he did net on his first return to the Riverside later that year.
