Ipswich's season got off to a flying start as three second-half goals earned them a surprise win at Middlesbrough.
Striker Scott McDonald tapped in Julio Arca's nodded centre from close range to give Boro a first-half lead.
But a deflected Tommy Smith snapshot levelled matters after the break, and a minute later Tamas Priskin headed in a Carlos Edwards cross for the lead.
A sweet volley from substitute Jon Stead then sealed the points against the pre-season title favourites.
Boro had started the more assuredly, showing the greater composure on the ball early on.
Ex-Rangers man Kevin Thomson - one of six former Old Firm players in Boro's starting XI - dictated the pace for periods in the centre of the park, while the occasional measured crossfield pass from right-back Justin Hoyte stretched Town on the opposite flank.
It was the Tractor Boys, though, who created the first clear-cut chance of the match.
Debutant Mark Kennedy, a summer signing from Cardiff, picked out Grant Leadbitter on the edge of the area but his goalbound shot was neatly saved by the low-diving Boro goalkeeper Danny Coyne.
Moments later, though, Boro's patient probing paid dividends when Barry Robson's cross was met at the far post by the unmarked substitute Arca, who came on after Willo Flood was stretchered off. He nodded across the face of goal to leave former Celtic striker McDonald the simple of task of prodding the ball home from inside the six-yard box.
Town gradually settled and were unlucky not to equalise when David Norris centred to Priskin whose flicked header came off the bar.
Ipswich finished the half marginally better than the home side but were restricted to long-range Leadbitter efforts.
Roy Keane's men, though, crucially found their cutting edge immediately after the restart.
The busy Norris drew a foul on the edge of the area, and when Leadbitter, who had displaced Thomson as the dominant force in midfield, rolled the free-kick to Edwards, the former Sunderland winger's bullet shot was fisted away by Coyne.
Hoyte headed the resulting flicked-on corner from Leadbitter off the line but the let-up proved short-lived for Boro.
Smith was alert to a loose ball on the edge of the area and Coyne was powerless to stop his deflected strike from finding the back of the net.
A minute later, the visitors were in front when Priskin stooped to meet a pinpoint Edwards cross and nod superbly into the bottom corner.
McDonald scampered in behind the Town defence but his low drive skimmed past Fulop's far post.
Arca could have levelled matters soon after but he clumsily fired high and wide from close range after an exquisite Robson through-ball had released the Argentine.
Stead, on for Priskin, almost made an immediate impact only to see his angled low shot saved by Coyne.
And in the 77th minute, Ipswich - by now in almost total control of the game - wrapped up the victory when Stead pounced inside the box to wallop a powerful volley home.
