We’re through to the 4th Round of the FA Cup!
Although beaten in the Carabao Cup earlier in the week, we defeated Middlesborough 2-1 at home in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup. With both sides fielding much weakened teams (we made 9 changes from the team beaten by Spurs), due to COVID plus wanting to give some first team regulars a rest, meant this was quite an attacking game. Although we won they had most of the possession and many more shots. We had three players making their first team debuts. Halil Dervisoglu put us ahead in the first half with an assist from Saman Ghoddos. After they had equalised just after half time, Halil returned the favour for Saman to restore our lead and that turned out to be the winning goal.
