Britt the saviour for 10-man Boro

Sunday Express - - FOOTBALL -

Mid­dles­bro 1 Black­burn 1

BORO res­cued a point thanks to a Britt As­som­ba­longa (be­low) strike af­ter Mo Besic’s red card – for pulling back Bradley Dack – left them a man short for 68 min­utes.

As­som­ba­longa’s goal, af­ter a bril­liant Char­lie Mul­grew free-kick de­servedly put im­pres­sive Black­burn ahead, was only their fifth in the last eight home games.

Boro boss Tony Pulis said: “It is a yellow card (for Besic) not a send­ing off. It knocked the stuff­ing out of our lads.”
