It was a penalty miss agony for battling Boro as in a last-minute drama, Linighan clumsily brought down Wilkinson. An appalling penalty miss by Bernie Slaven deprived Middlesbrough of a victory their second half pressure clearly merited.

Manager Lennie Lawrence criticized his side for “total lack of concentration” which gave away two goals and cost his side two points at Ayresome Park. “At times we battled brilliantly,” Lawrence said. “But this was interspersed with moments of absolute nonsense. “If we can cut these out we will go up the league, If we don’t we will go down.” Lawrence refused to criticise Bernie Slaven for missing the penalty but was angry about the build-up to the kick in which three players all rushed to grab the ball. “In future I will nominate the penalty taker before each game. I won’t allow them to come up with that nonsense on the field,” said the Boro boss.
In another match, Leeds United once again succumbed to their Boundary Park hoodoo, dropping a point after leading 2-0 with five minutes left. They had failed to beat Oldham in eight visits and could not manage it for ninth time despite a two-goal lead through Eric Cantona. Coincidentally, earlier that year Boundary Park / Oldham was also the team in which Eric Cantona had made his debut after arriving in England.
