Britt the saviour for 10-man Boro
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.”
