Boro looked set to follow promotion rivals Cardiff and Crystal Palace in dropping points before the game turned two minutes from time when a Scott McDonald cross hit Karl Henry on the arm.

The linesman pointed to the spot and the referee gave the penalty, which Marvin Emnes slammed home before McDonald struck deep in stoppage-time.

Wolves boss Stale Solbakken fumed at the final whistle but Mowbray, whose side are now just a point behind second-placed Palace, was satisfied justice had been done.

"I'm not going to question the integrity of the officials, they call it honestly every game," said the Boro manager.

"The boy leant into the ball and that's why the linesman called it how he did.

"It was a huge result for us. It wasn't the most fluid or polished we have played all season but that doesn't matter now.

"We can't play well every week but it wasn't exactly daylight robbery. We worked hard and kept going and I think we got our rewards."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
