Middlesbrough made it 10 games without a win after throwing off a 2-0 lead against Hull City as Marvin Johnson card was decisive in a 2-2 draw.
Despite their recent woeful type, Jonathan Woodgate’s negative were outstanding at the first half, taking a penalizing two-goal lead courtesy of a Marcus Tavernier strike (7) along with a brilliant team goal finished off by Ashley Fletcher (26).
However Johnson lost his head just before half time when recklessly sliding on Eric Lichaj leaving the referee no option but to brandish a card.
Hull took advantage of their extra man following the break along with Jared Bowen scored two quickfire goals (71 and 75) to quiet the Riverside Stadium.
A point does move the team of Woodgate but only on goal difference.
