Middlesbrough are held at home by Derby County, who took the lead through Theo Robinson before Lukas Jutkiewicz equalised.

Middlesbrough were held at home by a spirited Derby County side in an action-packed Championship encounter this evening.

Nigel Clough's Rams made the breakthrough on 16 minutes thanks a new-look strikeforce.

Boro defender Andre Bikey brought down Craig Bryson in the area to gift Derby a penalty kick.

Theo Robinson, chosen to replace top scorer Jamie Ward, made no mistake from the spot to give his side the lead.

The home side found an instant response through Lukas Jutkiewicz, who reacted quickest when Frank Fielding spilled a long-range free kick from Grant Leadbitter.

Tony Mowbray made a number of attacking substitutions in the second half to try to find a goal, introducing Emmanuel Ledesma and Merouane Zemmama.

Boro thought they had scored the winner 15 minutes from time when Jutkiewicz headed home unmarked in the area to make the score 2-1.

Derby were not be denied in the closing stages and found a late equaliser through Paul Coutts, who smashed home to profit from some poor Boro defending.

The Rams nearly had all three points when Robinson missed a late chance from close range, leaving both sides to share the points.
