Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray's praised his side's new-found resilience after seeing them fight back to snatch a precious point against Leicester.

The Teessiders were trailing 3-1 at the Riverside Stadium to former Boro striker Ayegbeni Yakubu's hat-trick, but eventually claimed a draw through Stephen McManus' injury-time header.

Mowbray said: "It shows the fighting spirit we have at this football club. I'm proud and delighted with the way we fought back."


He added: "That's three successive home games [in which] we have come from behind to get something.

"The supporters expect that. This is a part of the country where hard work and industry are part of life.

"While I want to build a technical team, you have to have a side that put in the hard work and enjoys the physical nature of some games and you can then play your football."
