Middlesbrough 0-0 Wigan Highlights
Middlesbrough’s miserable run continued as they were held at home by Wigan, making it a club record 14 Premier League games without victory.
A dismal first half was notable only for the departure of Didier Digard on a stretcher following a tackle by former Boro midfielder Lee Cattermole.
Stewart Downing had the best chance of the half, his well-struck effort turned behind by Chris Kirkland.
The keeper also saved late on from Gary O’Neil in a desperately poor game.
The Riverside was 10,000 short of capacity for an encounter between two sides struggling for confidence.
Middlesbrough’s recent form has been well documented, but Wigan have hardly been flying.
