Middlesbrough Clash Is Dream Come True For Jordan Hugill

25 August 2014

Jordan Hugill can’t wait for Tuesday night’s second round Capital One Cup match with boyhood heroes Middlesbrough.

When the draw was made for the second round, not many North End fans had a trip to the Riverside Stadium at the top of their wish list.

But Hugill certainly did – although he fell asleep prior to the draw being made!

But the frontman can’t wait for a return to the place he calls home on Tuesday.

Speaking to PNE Player, Hugill said: “I’m a Middlesbrough fan, so to be playing at the Riverside – hopefully anyway, would be a dream for me.

“I was going to watch the draw but I drifted off and then my phone started going mental with texts from all my friends saying that we had got Middlesbrough away and I couldn’t believe it.

“I had a season ticket for about six or seven years when they were in the Premier League and then I started playing football properly on Saturday’s so I had to get rid of it.”
