Chuba Akpom makes history as Middlesbrough beat Hull

Into the history books for Chuba Akpom as Boro comeback to beat Hull 3-1.

Wednesday night saw Middlesbrough take on Hull City at the Riverside in the penultimate home game of the season. Michael Carrick was without Aaron Ramsey, Riley McGree and Dael Fry and had to tweak the starting 11 in order to compete in the game.

Handing Alex Mowatt his first start in the league since October was the only change to the starting 11 from the win against Norwich.

Middlesbrough dominated the game in the opening 25 minutes. A spell Hull City had in the remaining 15 minutes of the first half saw the Tigers get the opening goal through Allahyar Sayyadmanesh following a routine corner kick to see Middlesbrough go 1-0 down going into half time.

Two half time substitutions seeing Anfernee Dijksteel and Isaiah Jones come on to replace Tommy Smith and Marcus Forss proved to be a tactical masterclass from Michael Carrick as the substitutes changed the game when getting on the pitch.

On the 55th minute, a driven ball down the right-hand side from Chuba Akpom made its way to Isaiah Jones who squared the ball in the box to the receiving Hayden Hackney who slotted it away to get the game back on level terms.

3 minutes later, Cameron Archer chases a ball over the top from goalkeeper Zack Steffen to beat the last defender and fire the ball into the back of the net to see Boro go 2-1 up.

The 61st minute saw the 3rd and final goal from Michael Carrick’s men, and it was none other than Boro’s goalscoring machine Chuba Akpom who not only got the winning goal but scored in his 9th consecutive home game in a row to see Boro win the match 3-1.

After scoring the goal, Akpom ran over to manager Michael Carrick saying after the match: “He’s the manager I’ve been dreaming of my whole career”.

Chuba Akpom now becomes the first ever Sky Bet Championship player to score in 9 home games in a row.
