Watch: Middlesborough's Incredible Tribute To Young Fans After Car Crash

Middlesbrough fans organised a minute's applause during their 3-1 victory against Barnsley after two young fans passed away in a car crash during the week.

The pair, both 17-years-old, were involved in a multi-car accident that saw another boy, Daniel Brown, taken to intensive care. When the club learned of the news, they sprung into action in a bid to honour the young fans during their home game at the Riverside Stadium and provide some comfort to Brown.

Irish goalkeeper Darren Randolph gave Brown a signed pair of boots while Adama Traoré reached out to the family to visit the boy in hospital with a signed jersey. In an astonishing turn of events, during the 17th-minute tribute, Traore scored a superb goal.
