Rumarn Burrell helped stretch our U23s' unbeaten streak to five matches with a draw against Crystal Palace in their last Premier League Cup group game.
The Boro youngsters were on top in the opening exchanges, but the deadlock was broken just before the half hour as Nya Kirby converted a penalty for the visitors.
But Burrell bagged the equaliser just before the midway point as he headed home a Jack Robinson corner.
Graeme Lee's side had already secured a place in the knockout phase of the competition and are waiting to discover their last 16 opponents.
