A goal and a player down at the break after Mo Besic's dismissal, Boro had to show great character to battle back for a share of the spoils.

Britt Assombalonga made the breakthrough for The Teessiders with a peach of a goal from the edge of the area.

"We had to dig in, which we had to at times in the first half as well," Flint said.

"And I think if you look at the chances, we probably edged it in the second.

"It was a brilliant goal from Britt - I think he's been watching me in training!

"It's a point gained, but we could even have had all three."
