Striker Scott McDonald felt sick after Nottingham Forest snatched a late equaliser to deny Middlesbrough victory.
Boro looked to be heading for all three points courtesy of the Australia international's eighth goal of the season when Dele Adebola struck at the death to rescue the npower Championship promotion chasers.
McDonald told the club's official website, www.mfc.co.uk: "It's enough to make you feel sick, isn't it?".
"I think everyone concerned with the club, players and fans, feels the same.
"The players in there [the dressing room] were inconsolable. We did everything right apart from that last kick of the ball.
"I don't think there's anyone you can blame - someone up there just doesn't like us at the minute."
