Middlesbrough fans start dreaming big after League Cup draw

Middlesbrough fans have taken to Twitter to show their joy at being drawn League One outfit Burton Albion in the quarter-finals. 

The Boro downed Premier League side Crystal Palace on Wednesday, while Burton upset Nottingham Forest at home.

A victory against Burton at The Riverside is more than do-able for Tony Pulis’ men, and after that they are in touching distance of the final at Wembley.

Of course, this has got many fans excited, with some perhaps getting ahead of themselves with the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal still in the competition, and with Man City playing Fulham this evening. Nonetheless, they are dreaming of Wembley now, and even saying they would favour a cup win over promotion this season.
