Middlesbrough were held at Barnsley today as the game ended in a 2-2 draw.
It was a frustrating afternoon for Garry Monk’s men, who failed to convert their 67 per cent possession into a victory at Oakwell.
The game started at a fast pace.
In a frantic opening nine minutes, Barnsley found themselves 2-1 up.
Middlesbrough’s Ashley Fletcher put the ball into his own net with a header after three minutes before Martin Braithwaite volleyed in an equaliser four minutes later.
But Boro were only level for two more minutes as Cameron McGeehan headed home a cross from Brad Potts to restore the home side’s lead.
Boro pressed hard for an equaliser and it finally came on the sixty minute mark – Britt Assombalonga with the goal.
That is how the game finished as Middlesbrough were held away at Barnsley and have to make do with just the one point.
Here are how Boro fans reacted to this draw.
Monk out！Bring back Karanka！

Not good enough. Nowhere near good enough.

Another 2 points dropped, had a cushy set of fixtures to start the season too. 6th place will be an effort at moment

Abysmal. We should be brushing teams like this aside. Keep to the system and the players, let them gel together.

I'm sorry but it is absolute garbage.

This is poor. You cannot drop points against the bottom half teams. wins are needed otherwise Boro will be a bottom half team #disappointed

played very well after half time but need to sort our defence out if we actually want to see wins again
