Result: Mustapha Carayol secures draw for Middlesbrough

A second-half goal from Mustapha Carayol earns Middlesbrough a point against Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship.

A second-half goal from Mustapha Carayol helped Middlesbrough claim a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday at the Riverside this afternoon.

The home side dominated the opening spell, with Lukas Jutkiewicz having an early shot at goal, narrowly missing the target.

However, it was the visitors who took the lead when Reda Johnson picked out Michail Antonio, who was left with a simple finish for the Owls.

Jordan Spence almost doubled Wednesday's advantage late in the first half, attempting a half-volley from the edge of the box, but his shot went wide.

The home side quickly equalised after the re-start, as Jutkiewicz crossed the ball in for Carayol, who smashed the ball past Chris Kirkland from point-blank range.

George Friend had two good opportunities to give the home side the lead shortly after, but he was unable to keep either of his efforts on target, while a later strike by Albert Adomah went just wide.
