Ipswich Town take on Middlesbrough, at the Riverside Stadium, in a Championship match tomorrow (3pm).

We broadcast Mick McCarthy’s pre-match press conference live right here, and you can watch it back to hear the Blues boss on all the big issues ahead of tomorrow’s game.

The Blues – who are just three points off the play-off places – are looking to make it three successive victories following impressive wins against Derby (1-0 away) and Nottingham Forest (4-2 at home) last week.

Big-spending Boro, among the pre-season promotion favourites following relegation from the Premier League, are two places and three points further back in the table (9th).

Garry Monk’s side have lost three of their last four matches – 2-1 at Leeds, 3-0 at Derby and 2-1 at home to Bristol City.

No dramas as such with Town’s defeat at Middlesbrough, but there’s a degree of frustration that we have seen a couple of times in three weeks now, writes Karl Fuller.

From the counter kings at Derby, to the counter chumps at Middlesbrough. With five of the next seven games at home, Ipswich Town need to take their medicine and quickly refocus on maintaining the fun factor at Portman Road.

Play to your strengths. It’s a well-worn piece of wisdom which applies in most walks of life, and certainly includes sport, writes North Stander Terry Hunt.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes his team let Middlesbrough off the hook in this afternoon’s 2-0 defeat at the Riverside Stadium.
