Ipswich manager Jim Magilton was left fuming following his side's 1-0 defeat to Colchester at Layer Road.
Colchester heavily dominated the game in the first half and The Tractor Boys boss was less than happy with his team's performance.
"We lost the game in the first twenty minutes," said Magilton.
"We simply did not turn up and we could not win the ball. We were simply not good enough.
"There was no chance for us to play our game and a few harsh words were spoken in the dressing room at half-time.
"I will not tolerate a repeat performance like that."
Ipswich failed to do enough to find their way back into the game and Magilton's side missed out on an opportunity to move up to second place.
Colchester boss Geraint Williams was delighted with his side's performance and hailed club captain Karl Duguid's contribution to the win.
"I thought the lads were magnificent," said Williams.
"We all know how much this game meant and we have come away with what we wanted.
"I though it was a real derby game, both teams played at a good tempo.
"It was a real captain's performance from Duguid and I'm delighted for him."
Duguid bagged the only goal of the game on nine minutes, capitalizing on an error from Ipswich goalkeeper Lewis Price.
