Boro recover from early blow

Huddersfield
2 - 2
Middlesbrough

The John Smith's Stadium

Tue 25th Mar 7.45pm

Attendance: 11,999

Referee:

Albert Adomah struck twice as Middlesbrough twice came from behind to earn a point in a 2-2 draw at Huddersfield Town.

Adam Hammill had opened the scoring on three minutes before Adomah seized on a weak back-pass to level seven minutes later.

However, Nahki Wells restored the home lead, only for Adomah to grab his second of the evening shortly after the interval.

Boro's start could hardly have been worse, Nathaniel Chalobah surrendering possession and Oliver Norwood allowing Hammill to drill beyond Dimi Konstantopoulos.

His opposite number Alex Smithies had already directly cleared against Danny Graham, but was beaten as Adomah claimed a wayward pass back and went around him to equalise.

Adomah later saw another effort blocked before on 34 minutes Wells curled in a second goal for the hosts with the aid of an upright.

Danny Ward actually went close to a third from distance while Addomah was denied at the other end, until seizing upon another error and driving home from the edge of the area early in the second-half.

Goalscorer Adomah was threatening again with an effort charged down but opportunities were restricted despite changes and both sides having hopeful shouts for penalties.
