Southgate upbeat after draw

20 Jan 2008 - 13:14:25

Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate bemoaned a series of missed chances as his side came away from Ewood Park with a point from a 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers.

David Wheater had headed Boro into a 13th minute lead and the visitors wasted a string of opportunities to add to their tally before Rovers equalised 15 minutes from time.

"We missed some gilt-edged chances to wrap the game up and that's disappointing," Southgate said after the match.

"We should have had them dead and buried before the equaliser.

"But I have to give great credit to my players. They have a strength and resilience about them away from home now. They're prepared to battle and scrap.

"We've gained another point on our travels and taken another step forward.

"There are some encouraging signs."
