Football Scores

Matt Crooks scored a brace late in the game to help Middlesbrough produce one of the comeback football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Andy Carroll looked to have scored the match-winner in the 68th minute before Crooks equalized with six minutes to play. Just when it looked that both teams would earn a share of the points, Crooks scored his second with virtually the last kick of the game.

Managers Reaction

Middlesbrough’s Chris Wilder: “Everybody loves a last-minute winner don’t they?. The Riverside was bouncing, especially when we got ourselves back onto level terms, there was no sitting back from that point and it was all in. Stick the lot, red and black, stick it on and we did. We found a bit of quality, although we weren’t a lucky team today. I thought our quality at times wasn’t as good as it has been, 62 percent possession, against a team that’s got quality as well.”

Reading Veljko Paunovic: “Football today is cruel to us, a severe punishment in the end. I think our team after Fulham’s game a couple of days ago, reestablished spirit and identity very well. That’s what we showed today in the 85 minutes. In the end, we conceded two goals, late goals, and showed the only aspect of the game that we still can’t control very well. It’s unlucky. It was really cruel today but I’m proud of the effort and I believe in these guys. On Wednesday we’re going to come back, fight back and fight stronger.”
