Super-sub Kink earns plaudits from Middlesbrough boss

Middlesbrough boss Gordon Strachan is expecting matchwinner Tarmo Kink to become a big hit on Teesside. The Estonia midfielder came off the bench to hit a stunning late double and give Boro a 2-1 win of Burnley.

Kink's stoppage-time free-kick eased some of the pressure on Strachan, and the under fire former Celtic boss is expecting plenty more star turns from a player he has admired for some time.

He said: "We know he is a good player.

"We have been watching him since March and we know what he can do.

"He is a sensitive lad and has maybe struggled a wee bit with the physical side here but he has a talent for striking a football and an eye for goal."
