Boro are back at the Riverside on Good Friday to take on table-toppers Wolves. Here’s six of the best goals against the Wanderers in previous encounters.
Both sides are in the hunt for promotion to the Premier League and the first goal comes from Boro’s promotion-clinching campaign to the top flight, beating Wolves 3-0 in the fourth round of the League Cup.
Albert Adomah netted a double but it was Diego Fabbrini’s strike, sandwiched between Adomah’s brace, that makes its way into six of the best.
Adomah turned provider when his low cross was left by Carlos de Pena and the smart move was polished off by Fabbrini.
In the away league fixture that season, Boro overturned a 1-0 half-time deficit to claim a 3-1 win.
Fabbrini was on the scoresheet again for Boro along with captain Grant Leadbitter, and Stewart Downing wrapped up the points with a 25-yard, left-footed free kick.
Boro joined the inaugural Premier League when they secured their place in the top flight by defeating Wolves in dramatic style at Molineux in May 1992.
A goal and a man down, Joe Gittens pulled one back for Boro before Paul Wilkinson nodded in the winner to seal our place in the top flight.
Patrick Bamford found the back of the net eight times in five matches in recent games for Boro and the goalgetter was on the scoresheet against Friday’s opponents in April 2015 - the final goal of his first spell with the club.
Bamford, who was crowned Championship Player of the Year in the 2014/15 campaign, flicked the ball with his right foot and finished with his left into the bottom right corner in a 2-1 win at the Riverside.
Leadbitter is no stranger to a long range strike and his second goal against Wolves at Molineux in 2013 was no exception.
Wolves were leading 2-1 until Leadbitter, who got Boro level in the first half, restored parity again in the second with his right-footed strike beating Dorus de Vries.
Afonso Alves’ clever finish away to Wolves helped Boro progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup back in 2009.
Tuncay Sanli played a neat ball through for Alves on the stroke of half-time and the Brazilian striker dinked the ball over Wayne Hennessey to give Boro the lead.
Despite an equaliser from Sam Vokes, Marvin Emnes scored late on for Boro to see off Wolves and secure their place in the next round of the FA Cup.
