My happiest yet admits Boro man

My happiest yet admits Boro man

Middlesbrough's versatile Andy Halliday certainly isn't rushing to sign a new deal at the Riverside despite being out of contract in the summer.

The 21-year-old has recently reverted to a left-back role after originally joining the Teessiders as a goalscoring winger from Scottish outfit Livingston in August 2010.

"It's the happiest I've been since I've been playing," Halliday admitted to BBC Tees. "Contracts take a long time to sort out, but I'm in no rush and it's certainly nothing to worry about."

And regarding his successful recent change of role, he continued: "I've got to give credit to the coaching staff, they've seen my attributes and the defensive instincts I bring because I don't want to lose. If playing at the back helps the team, then it's certainly something I'll do."

Barnsley 2 Middlesbrough 2

Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn themselves a point at Barnsley after goals from Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga.

A frantic start to the game witnessed three changes of scoreline inside ten minutes, with Ashley Fletcher responsible for an own-goal against his former club and Cameron McGeehan netting on his home debut.

Summer recruit Braithwaite managed to respond in between those and Boro's record signing Assombalonga later equalised on the hour.
