Boro travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City this Saturday. Check out six of the best goals against the Canaries.
We kick off with two goals from the same game in 2014, where Boro came out on top at the Riverside with a convincing 4-0 win.
Patrick Bamford opened the scoring for the home side when he turned in Albert Adomah’s cross with just five minutes gone.
Grant Leadbitter doubled the lead when he despatched a penalty, but the second pick of the six from the Boro skipper came in the second half Lee Tomlin floated a ball into the area and Leadbitter’s looping header went over John Ruddy and into the bottom corner.
Yanic Wildschut rounded off a memorable win for Boro five minutes from time, with the victory taking the Teessiders into the top two of the Championship.
Next up we go back to 2004 when the two sides were in the top flight, where Joseph-Desire Job bagged a brace at Carrow Road.
Job, who enjoyed a six-year stint with Boro, poked home Stewart Downing’s cross from close range but it was his second that caught the eye.
Franck Queudrue played in the striker with a great through ball to put the Cameroon international one-on-one with the goalkeeper, placing it calmly through the legs of Rob Green.
Job played a huge part in Boro’s League Cup success in 2004, scoring the opening goal in the 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers at Millennium Stadium.
Another comes in the reverse fixture of Job’s double in 2004, with an eight-goal thriller at Carrow Road with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink notching two of them.
The former Holland striker restored parity for Boro after Damien Francis opened the scoring for the Canaries, as Hasselbaink deflected in Downing’s attempt on goal.
Queudrue scored twice in a six-minute spell, but Hasselbaink’s second makes its way into the six of the best, bending in a superb free-kick to make it 3-1.
However Boro conceded three goals in the final 10 minutes to settle for a draw, as Dean Ashton Adam Drury and Leon McKenzie rescued a point for Norwich.
John Hendrie featured in last week’s Six of the Best with a goal against Brighton in the 1991/92 season and he features in this week’s edition with an impressive finish in the League Cup.
Paul Kerr put Boro 1-0 up with a well-placed volley on the edge of the area before Hendrie skipped past a Norwich defender, cut inside and curled in a superb left-footed strike into the top corner.
Boro defeated local rivals Newcastle United in the previous round of the competition that year, however they were knocked out by Aston Villa in the fourth round, losing 3-2.
The final goal comes from midfielder and now BBC Radio Tees co-commentator Neil Maddison in the 1997/98 campaign, where a 3-0 triumph took them into the automatic promotion places.
Maddison opened the scoring when he controlled Gianluca Festa’s floating ball into the box and beat the Norwich keeper from 12 yards out.
Alun Armstrong and Mikkel Beck added the other goals as Boro took a big stride towards promotion, which they went on to achieve that season by finishing second automatic promotion spot.
