Boro were denied a fifth successive league victory after a late Derby County equaliser at the Riverside.
Lewis Wing netted another impressive strike, but the Rams were level in the second half via a Jason Knight cross-come-shot.
The Boro lead was restored when Paddy McNair was successful from the penalty spot after Patrick Roberts was brought down inside the box.
But there was a late sting in the tail for Jonathan Woodgate's side as Duane Holmes' volley in second half stoppage time forced the points to be shared.
