Blackburn 1-1 Middlesbrough

Oct 27, 2008

Substitute Benni McCarthy rescued a point for Blackburn with a dramatic injury-time header at Ewood Park.

McCarthy levelled after heading home Brett Emerton’s corner, which Blackburn keeper Paul Robinson had come up for.

Boro had taken a 74th-minute lead when Afonso Alves smashed the ball past Robinson from the edge of the box.

Earlier Boro’s Tuncay Sanli had a overhead kick wrongly disallowed, while Jeremie Aliadiere struck the bar, while Rovers’ Roque Santa Cruz hit the post.
