Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate was left bemoaning his side´s misfortune as Sunderland hit back at the death to snatch a point.

A superb last-gasp volley from Liam Miller ensured Roy Keane´s 50th game in charge of the Black Cats ended 2-2 - but it was hard luck on Southgate´s men, who had fought their way back from Grant Leadbitter´s second-minute opener to lead 2-1 despite losing Tuncay Sanli, Julio Arca and Mido to injury during the game.

"It would be easy to throw things and be annoyed but I have got to say, I am proud of what the players have done because it was an afternoon where pretty much everything that could have gone against us did," he said.
