Super Subs Rock Boro


Recommended Posts

A goals for substitutes Matt Derbyshire and Santa Cruz on his Premiership debut gave Rovers all three points in a 2-1 win against Middlesbrough this afternoon, after the Riversiders had taken a first half lead.

Boro took the lead through a Stewart Downing free-kick when the wall failed to protect Friedel, however worst was to come when Benni McCarthy was stretchered off midway through the second half.

However substitute Santa Cruz on for the injured McCarthy rose majestically like a salmon to power home David Bentley cross and provide Rovers with an equaliser.

Then things got even better when Derbyshire who had just come on for Roberts put Rovers into the lead with a brilliantly goal with his first touch of the ball, he curled his shot round Schwarzer and into the top corner.
