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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
