Tony Mowbray insists that Middlesbrough have only themselves to blame for their defeat at Ipswich Town.

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray has admitted that his side can have "no excuses" for their 4-0 defeat away to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Mowbray also urged his players to respond in the next game and show him they are worthy of a playoff place.

"It was a poor performance from us and there are no excuses," Sky Sports News quotes Mowbray as saying.

"We came here in a positive mood thinking we could get three points, hoping to push on and put pressure on the top two again.

"Now we're looking for a reaction because today wasn't good enough. We've lost four on the bounce and we either curl up and die or come out fighting, to show our credentials for a top-six place.

Boro currently hold sixth place in the Championship.
