Boro boss Steve McClaren was disappointed at the final score, but delighted with the performance, although his side has now won just once in nine league games.
McClaren: 'It was two (points) thrown away. It's a cruel game. We were 2-1 up - and I thought deservedly 2-1 up after the performance - and to lose two points like that, it's certainly testing us.
'But our team today showed fantastic character to play like that. It was a gritty performance against Manchester City, but we played great football at times today, and even at 1-0 down at half-time, I thought we had enough chances in the first half. I said 'If we keep going, we will get our rewards', and we did, but to have it snatched away from us at the end is very cruel.
'Yes we are only a couple of places from the relegation zone, but when you look at it, it's very tight. There's only six points between us and eighth and you look at the players coming back. I said before Christmas, I predict a better second half of the season than we have had in the first in the league.
'We have to continue in Europe as we are, but in the league we will have a better second half. A couple of wins can send you well up.'
