Jermaine Beckford continued his rich vein of scoring form to earn Leicester a deserved point with a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough.

Beckford had done everything but score before popping up with his sixth goal in his last four matches with four minutes remaining. It had looked like a rare Tom McMahon goal would give Middlesbrough victory when he struck in the 79th minute.

Scott McDonald had earlier cancelled out David Nugent's opener for Leicester to send the teams into half-time level. The draw still saw Boro climb back into the npower Championship play-off places.
