We deserved better - Mowbray

We deserved better - Mowbray

Manager Tony Mowbray felt Middlesbrough deserved much better following their 2-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium.

The visitors had their already cautioned defender Jonathan Woodgate sent-off just ahead of the hour mark after their opponents had swiftly retaken the lead in response to a Kieron Dyer equaliser.

"I thought we deserved more than that and we needed a better official to referee the game because there were some bewildering decisions out there today," Mowbray told BBC Sport. "The penalty was one of them and the sending-off was certainly one of them.

"Bolton started the game well, which they always do but I thought we had a decent foothold in the game and then they got a goal through a cross which just drifted in," he added. "But that's the way our luck has been going at the minute. I thought we were the better team but the history books will show that we lost."

Middlesbrough dropped to twelfth place in the table and finally out of play-off contention as a result of their latest defeat.

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.
