14th February 1988

The 1st ever televised live match outside the top division
Boro 2 Villa 1

Memirable winning goal by Boro legend & icon Tony Mowbray
Villa who were top of the league were 8 points clear & woukd extend this lead to 11 points took a lead to stamp their leadership in the division
But the Boro under Rioch were made of sterner stuff as our epic cup matches v Everton proved & with a emphatic final 15 minutes with Boro 1-0 down we turned it around
Alan Kernaghan scored to bring the scores level, we pressed & pressed & the holgate in full voice, with Co commentator Ian St John saying, they'll lift the roof if they score again, & we did

Laws, Mowbrayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
