JONATHAN Woodgate insists victory over his former club Middlesbrough does not feel any sweeter than other wins, and plans to celebrate with a Chinese takeaway.

Middlesbrough-born Woodgate played more than 100 games for the club during his career and was also manager before being sacked in June of last year.

His side defeated Neil Warnock's men 3-1 at Vitality Stadium this afternoon thanks to goals from Philip Billing, Jefferson Lerma and Dominic Solanke.

And Woodgate says beating his former club did not leaving him feeling any better than his other victories, with focus quickly on Monday's trip to Blackburn Rovers.

"No, there’s no revenge. It is what it is for me," he said.

"I celebrate when we score goals against Rotherham, I celebrate against Birmingham, whenever we score I celebrate. Against Middlesbrough I celebrate. I want us to win the game.

"We know there’s a long way to go. You have a victory and okay, you’re happy, but there’s no celebrating because you know the next game is on Monday.

"That’s the feeling. That’s exactly what I would be like as a player as well.

"The next game is Monday. Middlesbrough is done. I’ll have a nice bit of Chinese food tonight, nice bit of white wine with a bit of lemonade in it, a white wine spritzer, and that’s me and I’ll look to Blackburn."
