Middlesbrough crashed out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening with a shock defeat to League Two side, Crewe Alexandra at the Riverside. 

Boro found themselves two goals down at half-time, with Chris Porter and Charlie Kirk both scoring in quick succession.

But Jonathan Woodgate’s side fought back late on, and Ashley Fletcher halved the deficit with 15 minutes remaining to give the Championship side some hope.

Summer signing, Marc Bola then netted an injury-time equaliser for Boro which saw the game head to penalties.

It was the League Two side that held their nerve though, scoring all of their penalties, with Britt Assombalonga and Marcus Browne both missing their spot-kicks.

It proved to be a hugely frustrating evening for the Boro supporters, who will have been keen to see their side pick up their first win of the season.

Plenty of Middlesbrough fans took to social media following the surprise defeat.
