Boro were dealt a first league defeat of the season by visiting QPR on Wednesday. 

The Teessiders led on the night through Uche Ikpeazu's penalty, and even after the away side's equaliser - an own goal from Jonny Howson - Hoops defender Moses Odubajo was dismissed for a second yellow card. 

But Lyndon Dykes fired Rangers ahead, and though Matt Crooks levelled things up again for Boro, parity was short lived as Chris Willock scored what proved to be the winner.
