Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka insists that his side were denied victory by a Nottingham Forest handball last night.

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has insisted that his side were denied victory by a Nottingham Forest handball last night.

With 10 minutes left of the game, Darius Henderson diverted Andy Reid's cross home and Boro's players immediately fumed, claiming that the Forest man had used his arm.

"I didn't need to see a replay. My players' reaction was enough to know it was handball," Karanka told BBC Tees.

"If the scorer is humble, I'm sure he would admit it was handball."

A point was enough for Boro to climb into the top half of the table.
