Boro head coach Jonathan Woodgate was encouraged with the response from his side after drawing with Preston North End.
After a heavy defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, Boro came from behind to earn a point against the Lilywhites, with Josh Harrop putting the visitors ahead before Britt Assombalonga levelled matters from close range.
"It was important after that Sheffield Wednesday game we showed what we're all about," he said.
"I thought we deserved to win the game, I thought we were better than them, we had a lot of chances in the game that we didn't finish but it's a result that we needed and it's a point on the board."
