Middlesbrough midfielder Barry Robson was distraught after handing their derby rivals an FA Cup lifeline, his mistake allowing Sunderland to grab a 1-1 draw.

The Scotland international, whose stunning 16th-minute volley had fired the npower Championship visitors into the lead at the Stadium of Light, played a part in substitute Fraizer Campbell's 59th-minute equaliser when his loose pass set James McClean away on a pacy counter-attack.

Robson's error did not prevent him from picking up the man of the match award at the end of a pulsating fourth-round encounter, but manager Tony Mowbray revealed that proved little consolation. The Boro boss said: "He came in and he threw his champagne in the bin."
