Tony Mowbray turned his ire on Wednesday night's officials as Middlesbrough were denied the chance to climb to eighth in the npower Championship table thanks to Paul Coutts' last-gasp equaliser for Derby in a 2-2 draw.

Lucas Jutkiewicz looked to have earned a fourth home league win of the season for the hosts as he completed his brace five minutes from time. But Coutts benefited from a spot of pinball in the Boro box to end Derby's losing streak at the Riverside, after Theo Robinson had put Nigel Clough's men ahead from the penalty spot in the first half.

Mowbray was convinced a Derby player had been offside in the build-up to Coutts' scrambled goal, saying: "When you get yourself in front so late on the expectation is that you'll take all three points. The frustration is that the goal was offside, but we sit here at 2-2 and can't change it now because the officials got it wrong."
