Hugill’s dou­ble piles on the mis­ery for Wi­gan

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

JOR­DAN HUGILL’S first-half dou­ble helped pro­mo­tion-chas­ing Mid­dles­brough to a 2-0 win over Wi­gan. Hugill opened the scor­ing from the penalty spot af­ter Ge­orge Friend was up­ended in the box, and found the net again on the stroke of half-time with a close-range half-vol­ley.

Mid­dles­brough’s vic­tory ended a run of four home league games with­out a win. Hugill went into the game look­ing for his first league goal in a Mid­dles­brough shirt, but two ar­rived within the space of five min­utes at the end of the first half.
