Blackburn substitute Benni McCarthy's headed equaliser in the third minute of injury time salvaged a 1-1 draw at home to Middlesbrough.

Afonso Alves scored the opener in the 74th minute after out-pacing veteran centre-back Andre Ooijer and turning to fire past goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

However, McCarthy rose highest at a late corner to head in at the near post, although the main talking point of the match was Tuncay Sanli's wrongly disallowed overhead kick in the first half.
