Boro Game Switched To Cup Tie

Last updated : 29 December 2009 By Boro Mad

Boro took the lead in the 24th minute through full-back Justin Hoyte, who picked up a loose ball on the left and saw his cross beat everyone - including Steele in the Barnsley goal.

Gordon Strachan: "It was a fluke.

"We won the football match in the first half and they decided to turn it into a cup tie and then they won it.

"We were disappointed to lose the game but we couldn't match them in a different game.

"There was nothing wrong with the first goal and the second one was made by a good cross."
