Referee:

Middlesbrough's winless streak continued with a 0-0 draw against Burnley at the Riverside.

That leaves them six points behind the current safety-line with still games against Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea to come.

Boro best moments arrived with substitute Alvaro Negredo's overhead fended away by Tom Heaton during the second-half, while Stewart Downing and Daniel Ayala both had late efforts cleared from the line.

Robbie Brady's free-kick already struck the woodwork for the visitors and team-mate George Boyd next couldn't find the required finish.

Meanwhile, Grant Leadbitter's reply was inadvertently deflected away by team-mate Rudy Gestede, whose header at least brought Heaton into action following the interval.

Brady was off-target for the visitors at the other end and Ben Mee's subsequent header forced a save from Boro keeper Victor Valdes.

Negredo's acrobatic overhead and an Adam Clayton effort offered renewed hope for home supporters before Downing's late free-kick and Ayala's header were both cleared off the line by Matthew Lowton.

Middlesbrough: Valdes, Bernardo (Bamford 83), Ayala, Gibson, Barragan, Leadbitter, Clayton, Forshaw, Downing, Stuani (Negredo 58), Gestede (Traore 69)

subs (unused): Fischer, Guzan, de Roon, Fry

Burnley: Heaton, Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward, Boyd, Hendrick, Barton, Brady, Barnes (Tarkowski 90), Gray (Vokes 62)

subs (unused): Flanagan, Westwood, Pope, Agyei, Arfield
