Boro had the best of the chances in a fairly low-key contest but they were unable to break the deadlock, although they did manage to end a four-match losing streak.

Mowbray's men have been in the play-off positions for much of the season but they now find themselves six points adrift.

And, reflecting on the match, Mowbray said: "There were a lot of positives but, ultimately, we are disappointed and frustrated, because we didn't win a game we dominated.

"The positives? A clean sheet, which we haven't managed in a while, some good passing football, some good individual displays, and we created a lot of chances.

"But we come away frustrated, because that was a match we feel we could have won, if only we had converted one or more of those chances, and we could have kick-started our season."

Mowbray remains hopeful of a Championship play-off spot and added: "The rest of the teams just above us are dropping points and it seems like they are waiting there for us to play catch-up.

"And we have some of these teams to play in the next few weeks, so it is there for us if we can kick-start it."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
