Teammates, staff and supporters have spoken of the rarity of a Jonathan Hogg goal.

So it’s hard to believe the 27-year-old midfielder actually netted on his senior debut – 207 games ago!
Hogg, who has chalked up only three career goals, was on loan to Darlington, then of League II, from Aston Villa.
The Quakers were taking on Chesterfield at Saltergate and had hopes of forcing a draw when, on 87 minutes, Hogg converted a pass from James Collins at close range to reduce the home lead to 3-2.
However the Spireites struck twice in the closing stages to cement a 5-2 win.
Middlesbrough-born Hogg’s only other goal came for Town in their 3-2 League Cup second-round win at home to Charlton Athletic in August 2013.
His long-range shot in the 77th minute levelled the tie at 2-2 (Joel Lynch had scored Town’s opener) and Adam Hammill claimed an 82nd-minute winner.
Hammill, of course, was on duty for Barnsley in Saturday’s John Smith’s Stadium derby.
Hogg, bought from Watford for £400,000 in July 2013, has made 93 Town appearances (Saturday’s was his seventh from the bench).
He played 84 times for Watford and seven times for Villa, who loaned him out to both Darlington (five games) and Portsmouth (19).
He was quick to praise teammate Elias Kachunga for his part in Saturday’s winner.
“Elias set up both goals, so he’s played a big part,” said Hogg, who watched from the dug-out as Chris Lowe put Town ahead in the first half.
“For mine, he bounced off his challenger, then put in a lovely pass, and I just went for it.
“It was great to see it fly into the top corner!”
