Karanka unhappy with equaliser

Karanka unhappy with equaliser

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka wasn't happy about Nottingham Forest's equaliser in their 1-1 draw at the Riverside.

The Spaniard believes substitute Darius Henderson handled before putting the ball in the net ten minutes from time. Mustapha Carayol had earlier given Boro the lead shortly after the break.

"I think it was handball, for sure. You could see from the reaction of my players that they thought it was," Karanka told BBC Sport. "These are not players who would normally chase the referee to complain and if they thought it was handball, then 100% I believe them.

"We haven't played well but we had two or three good chances to win this game against a very good side who are in the play-off places."

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