There was hope amongst Boro fans this morning but this was short-lived after a dismal display at the Riverside this afternoon which produced Boro's first defeat at the Riverside since December 2009.
Boro went into the lead after 22 minutes with Scott McDonald opening his 2010/11 account with a composed finish but if anything the game was open with both sides looking like they could score, with Ipswich hitting the bar before half time.
Boro fell asleep in the second half which allowed Ipswich to score three goals which ensured the win for Roy Keane's side. The boos where clear for all to hear around the Riverside as the full time whistle was blown.
