Derby County let a win slip away at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday, when Scott Carson’s net rippled in the 84th minute after Jayden Bogle scored a bizarre own goal.
The Rams had taken the lead themselves via an own goal, when Boro defender George Friend’s error under pressure from Martyn Waghorn opened the scoring in a dominant period for the visitors.
Had it not been for chances spurned by the likes of Harry Wilson, the game may have been put to bed before the half-time break given the onslaught on Darren Randolph’s goal.
When play resumed, Frank Lampard’s side played a more conservative style of football and sat back, welcoming pressure from the hosts desperate to turn things around.
Even though Tony Pulis’ side failed to register a single shot on target across the 90, Bogle volleying past his own keeper meant Boro earned a point and could remain near the top of the table in third, while the Rams dropping to sixth.
Fans of the Pride Park side, however, offered comfort to the teenager after the match.

Frustrating not to win, but 7 from 9 against the opposition we played isn’t to be sniffed at. Feel for Bogle. Tomori had a blinder! Just shows we MUST take our chances! Played lads! ?? #DCFC #dcfcfans

Hope that OG doesn’t affect Bogle too much, as he’s been fantastic so far this season. Was just one of those freak moments really. #dcfc
