Southampton conceded a 90th-minute goal to draw with Middlesbrough as their Championship automatic promotion hopes suffered a blow.

Adam Armstrong's first-half strike was cancelled out by Emmanuel Latte Lath's late equaliser to leave Saints eight points behind the top two.

The hosts failed to capitalise on a number of chances at St Mary's as Latte Lath pounced for his 10th goal of the season.

The eight-point gap could be stretched even more with third-placed Ipswich and leaders Leeds United still to play on Friday.
