Match Preview

Emnes facing late test Middlesbrough will hand a fitness test to striker Marvin Emnes ahead of the visit of Peterborough. The Dutchman is still struggling with the hamstring injury which has kept him out of the last two games and he will continue to be assessed. Bart Ogbeche has started in place of Emnes in the last two games and he will continue in the side if the latter does not make it. Merouane Zemmama (hip) and Kevin Thomson (hamstring) recovered sufficiently from their respective injuries to take their place on the bench in Boxing Day's win over Hull and they will be hoping for a bigger part when Posh come calling. Boss Tony Mowbray has no other injury or suspension concerns as his side chase a fifth successive win. On-loan midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe could return to the Peterborough squad. Manchester United teenager Tunnicliffe failed to recover from a dead leg sustained during the home win over Coventry and joined skipper Grant McCann (knee), fellow midfielder Lee Frecklington (groin) and right-back Mark Little (groin) on the injury list for the Boxing Day fixture against Nottingham Forest. Tunnicliffe has recovered from that issue but he has been ill this week and will be monitored. Lee Tomlin was nursing a knee problem following the Coventry clash and he was only fit enough for a place on the substitutes' bench at the City Ground. The forward could be restored to the starting line up on Teesside, but there is no chance of McCann, Frecklington or Little being involved. Frecklington had a chance of making the Forest game but he broke down in training on Christmas Eve and now faces an operation.

Match Report

Rowe earns Posh point Tommy Rowe's header three minutes from time ensured Peterborough left Middlesbrough with a point following a 1-1 draw in the npower Championship. Scott McDonald had earlier nodded in Barry Robson's corner and Boro seemed destined to to earn all three points and move level with Southampton at the top of the table. McDonald twice hit the bar after his opening goal and it proved to be crucial as Rowe snatched a point at the end. Boro will feel they did enough to earn the victory as the visitors offered little attacking threat before falling behind. But they were far more adventurous in the second period and the draw meant they extended their unbeaten run to four games. Middlesbrough still moved into the automatic promotion places after defeats for Southampton and West Ham but Rowe's late goal meant they were unable to record their fifth successive victory. It was also the first time Tony Mowbray's side had dropped points in December after four successive victories. Both sides remained unchanged from their respective 1-0 Boxing Day wins and it was Middlesbrough's match-winner Robson who very nearly picked up where he left off against Hull. The midfielder gave Boro all three points with a stunning strike three minutes from time and he looked lively again in the opening exchanges. He found space in the 10th minute but his lofted shot went over the bar before he tried his luck again with a blasted shot which produced the same outcome. The nearest Boro came to breaking the deadlock came when right back Justin Hoyte found some space in an advanced position. The home supporters encouraged the former Arsenal man to try his luck and his shot across the face of goal only needed a touch but it narrowly evaded McDonald. It seemed as though Boro were destined to have an off-day in front of goal but their persistence was rewarded six minutes into the second half. Robson's inswinging corner found McDonald at the near post and with little room to manouvre, he glanced his header into the corner of the net. Posh boss Darren Ferguson responded by replacing Daniel Kearns with Joe Newell and that switch seemed to give the visitors more freedom. A sweeping move ended in a George Boyd shot which Middlesbrough keeper Jason Steele had to palm away. Scott Wootton and Paul Taylor then went close with fierce shots from distance but Boro, buoyed by the arrival of top scorer Marvin Emnes' from the substitutes' bench, responded at the other end as McDonald twice struck the bar with thundering efforts. It proved costly as Posh found an equaliser. Steele made a terrific save to flick Taylor's shot wide but Rowe planted a header into the top corner from the resulting corner to deny Boro victory.
