We've been taking a look back at six memorable Boro goals against Saturday opponent's Fulham (3pm).
We kick things off with a goal from Lee Cattermole at Craven Cottage back in August 2007. The midfielder’s 88th minute strike, a fine finish following great work from Jeremie Aliadiere, completed a turnaround for Boro after Mido had cancelled out Brian McBride’s opener.
It was our first win of the season, and the last of four goals Cattermole would score in a Boro shirt – he left for Wigan Athletic at the end of the campaign.
Cattermole had happy memories at the Cottage - he'd become Boro's youngest-ever captain in a league fixture there as an 18-year-old.
Szilard Nemeth had a great goalscoring record against Fulham, with four goals in eight matches, and this tidy finish in August 2004 is probably the pick of the bunch.
The Slovakian marksman had only been on the pitch a matter of minutes, with Boro leading 1-0 through Mark Viduka, when Franck Queudrue beat his man and found him at the back post for a finish from the tightest of angles.
Massimo Maccarone made an instant impact on his home debut against the Cottages in August 2002. The Italian record buy had already notched up his first Boro goal in the first half, rifling past Edwin van der Sar, before this bullet header made it 2-0.
Unfortunately for Massimo and Boro, the dream home debut had an unhappy ending as the visitors grabbed two goals at the death to snatch an unlikely point.
A breakaway goal from Albert Adomah capped a great win for Boro at the Riverside in October 2014. Adam Reach had broken the deadlock early in the second half, prodding home after Lee Tomlin’s acrobatic effort, before Adomah secured the win by dispatching at the end of a quick counter-attach. The result meant Boro made it six unbeaten – Aitor Karanka’s side were beginning to find their feet en route to the Play-Offs that season.
The Ghanaian would prove a thorn in the side for Fulham throughout his Boro spell, scoring a fine header in our 2-0 win at the Cottage the following year.
Next up is James Morrison’s first Premier League goal for Boro. The Academy graduate had already scored a couple in the UEFA Cup, as well as one in the League Cup against Coventry City, but this well-taken half volley was his first in league action.
The goal levelled things up after Collins John’s stunner (itself a worthy winner of any game) with Yakubu turning from provider to poacher to restore parity again in the second half before Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink had the final say in a 3-2 win for Boro.
Mark Viduka was another who loved a goal against Fulham – he netted eight in ten appearances against the Cottagers, four in the red of Boro.
A rare forage forward from Jonathan Woodgate, followed by fine footwork from the big Aussie, led to this goal, the first of two that afternoon and adding to a total of 19 goals that season.
Sadly for Boro fans, it was the last they’d see of Viduka in Boro colours before he joined North East rivals Newcastle on a free transfer.
