Albert Adomah’s Middlesbrough have returned to the top of the Championship table with a 4-1 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Ipswich Town at the Riverside this afternoon.
The Ghanaian winger played full throttle of the game and scored in the 30th minute of the game – his fourth goal of the season – and received a booking in the 78th minute.
The home side took the lead less than five minutes into the match as Adam Clayton crossed the ball in following a short corner, setting in Dani Ayala to head it in from close range.
The visitors soon got themselves back on level terms though as Dimitrios Konstantopoulos could only parry a Jonathan Parr effort into the path of Daryl Murphy, leaving him with a simple tap in for his 23rd goal of the season.
Mick McCarthy’s side looked the more likely as the half-hour marked approached, but it was the home side who retook the lead 30 minutes in as Ipswich failed to clear a corner, allowing Albert Adomah to blast it into the bottom corner.
Aitor Karanka’s men managed to increase their advantage when Jelle Vossen flicked to ball in for Bamford, who rounded the keeper before slotting it into the open net.
Bamford added his second of the day with 10 minutes to go when he got the better of Tommy Smith before squeezing the ball beneath the keeper.
