Dwight Yorke

Middles­brough 0 Man­chester Uni­ted 1. River­side Sta­dium, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, May 9, 1999. Al­ex Ferguson´s men mo­ved ahead of Ar­senal at the top of the ta­ble on goals sco­red as they be­at Middles­brough. Dwight Yorke hit the sole goal of the ga­me on forty-five min­utes to give The Reds a 1-0 win over Boro in their pen­ul­tim­ate away clash of the season.

The win­ning goal of the en­counter came on the stroke of ha­lf-time when Man­chester Uni­ted and Three Li­ons in­ter­na­tion­al Teddy Sher­ing­ham head­ed the ball across the goal­mouth where strik­ing part­ner Dwight Yorke fou­nd the back of the net from a few yards out. The Middles­brough play­ers strongly pro­tested that bo­th Sher­ing­ham and Yorke had be­en in off­side po­s­i­tions, but they were waved away by ref­er­ee Gra­ham Barber. The Old Traf­ford men con­tin­ued to push for­ward dur­ing the sec­ond ha­lf, and wi­th less than a min­ute re­maining of nor­mal time, Jes­per Blom­quist re­place­ment Andy Cole came clo­se to doub­ling the ad­vant­age for the vis­it­ing si­de from Man­chester, on­ly to see his ef­fort go over the cross­bar.
