Brighton 1 Middlesbrough 1: Boro fail to hold on in another draw

Have your say

Middlesbrough were forced to settle for a fourth 1-1 draw in a row in today’s Championship clash with fellow play-off hopefuls Brighton.

Marvin Emnes’ flicked header gave the visitors the lead from Barry Robson’s corner.

Lukas Jutkiewicz then hit a post as Boro chased a second, but Brighton deservedly equalised when Calderon met Kazenga LuaLua’s corner with a thumping header.

Boro are two points clear of Cardiff in the final play-off place.
