Highlights - Ipswich A-A Middlesbrough

Ipswich's home Championship clash with Middlesbrough was abandoned after 37 minutes because of a frozen pitch, with the game still goalless.

The surface, which had been protected for eight days, had earlier passed two inspections on Saturday, including one at 1345 GMT.
