Sierra Leone native Josh Koroma register his second goal in the English Champions in Huddersfield Town’s 4-2 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Koroma, 24, was making his 12th appearance of the season and scored two goals in the Championship.

Fighting for a place in the second-tier of English football, Huddersfield produced a stunning second-half fightback to beat Middlesbrough and dent their automatic promotion hopes.

In the 43rd-minutes, Marcus Forss had put Boro ahead, but Josh Ruffels lashed a shot into the roof of the net to level just 20 seconds into the second half.

Josh Koroma curled a shot into the corner to put the host ahead before Matty Pearson added a quickfire double as below-par Boro collapsed.

Boro pulled one back through Chuba Akpom’s head to make it 4-2, but that wasn’t enough.

It left Boro six points adrift of second-placed Sheffield United, having played a game more, while the Terriers move level on points with Cardiff City in 21st place.
