Paddy McNair said Boro were good value for a point against Bournemouth - and hailed the Boro fans for the part they played.
Roared on by a 1,000-strong crowd in today's pilot fixture, Boro grabbed a point thanks to Marcus Browne's late equaliser.
"We've played two very good teams so it's good to get off the mark," McNair said.
"I think if the game goes on a bit longer then we win it today.
"Having the fans there definitely helped, especially in that last ten minutes."
