BORO blew their chance to go top of the league during a weekend of highs and lows as they also wiped out a record that has stood for 101 years.
Middlesbrough went unbeaten for the 11th game in a row with a 1-1 draw against Millwall.
It was the first time such a feat has been achieved by the Teessiders since 1910, but you won’t find Boro boss Tony Mowbray toasting the triumph.
He rued the result as “two points dropped” against the Lions from London, as his side drew for the fifth home game in a row.
His misfiring forwards could not break the deadlock for the fourth game in succession and had to rely on a first-half Barry Robson rocket to give them hope of victory.
But a freak own goal with just less than an hour gone drew the sides level and stopped Boro topping the table with 11 matches played.
“I think we’re all aware we need to win more home games,” said a disappointed Mowbray, who is still keen to bring in another striker.
