Middlesbrough and Derby County produced a tightly fought 1-1 draw on Saturday in a game that either side will believe they should have won.
On a cold morning at Rockliffe, Boro took a first half lead through Danny Hawkins but were eventually pegged back by a Derby equaliser in the 82nd minute by Chris Jones.
Boro started the match brightly and Kyle Oliver and James Gray both went close early on before Hawkins opened the scoring.
Some good play involving Oni Roushias and Gray, saw Hawkins race clear down the left and he finished well as he advanced on the near post.
Park’s mazy run then reminded any watching Boro fans of past heroes Downing and Johnson but the youngster unfortunately fired over after seemingly doing all the hard work to fashion an opportunity.
Derby centre-back Chris Jones then saw his goal-bound effort cleared off the line by Boro defender Phil Shead and the score remained 1-0 at half-time.
Boro continued to press for a second after the interval and Marinos Andreou went close after a fine run.
However, with just one goal between the two sides Derby were manfully sticking to their task and they retrieved a point from their trip up north when Jones converted on 82 minutes from a corner.
And they could have won it, in a frantic finale Callum Ball went close to converting a teasing cross that eventually drifted wide.
