Team News: Ipswich v City

21 October 2017

Daniel Farke delivered a positive injury bulletin ahead of City’s Sky Bet Championship visit to Ipswich Town.

Norwich were down to the bare bones in attack in the draw against Hull City, but Farke hopes he will have more options going into the derby. Josh Murphy, who missed the game against Hull, has returned to training this week.

“Murphy has trained in the last two days and he should be available for at least the bench but it depends on how his toe reacts in the next two days,” Farke told the media on Friday afternoon.” It’s good we should have more offensive options than we did against Hull.”

Marco Stierpermann came off the bench against Hull, and is now available to start after training all week with no ill-effect. There was also good news about Nelson Oliveira, who came off the bench to score the 96th-minute equaliser against the Tigers.

“Nelson has trained all week but although he still feels pain sometimes he is in a better position,” Farke said. “He will certainly be able to play for longer than he did against Hull, but we’ll have to see whether he’s 100% to be able to start.”

Farke also praised the ability of his two main strikers following Cameron Jerome’s assist for Oliveira’s equaliser. “Jerome and Oliveira are very different strikers,” Farke said. “Cameron is great in the air, works a lot and gives the young lads confidence. Nelson is blessed with brilliant ability and is brilliant in finishing positions.

“Sometimes you need both of them on the pitch, like at the end against Hull City. We have really good quality in our striking positions – and Marley Watkins was brilliant against Brentford – and although Nelson is back we’re still looking forward to having him at 100% so they’re both full fit as they’re both big threats.”

Norwich will head to the Emirates just two days after Sunday’s derby, but Farke says all thoughts are on the game against Ipswich.

“When you have two games in three days – one a derby and one an away game at Arsenal – it can be difficult,” Farke said. “But we will start the best starting line-up we can against Ipswich to try and win the game, and only after that will we think about Arsenal.”

Match Reports

Maddison's strike earns City the spoils in the East Anglian derby

22 October 2017

James Maddison’s brilliant second-half strike saw Norwich City take the spoils in the first East Anglian derby of the season with a 1-0 victory over Ipswich Town as Portman Road.

Maddison’s curler on the hour mark set alight a very open match in Suffolk to extend City’s unbeaten run in the league and move them into the Sky Bet Championship play-off positions.

Daniel Farke made just two alterations to his starting eleven with Marco Stiepermann and Wes Hoolahan coming into the side in place of James Husband and Mario Vrancic.

The match started at a frenetic pace and it was the hosts who went closest to breaking the deadlock inside five minutes. Ivo Pinto appeared to have been fouled by Jonas Knudsen by the referee waved play on and the Ipswich defender then rattled the post with a powerful strike.

City did enjoy periods of possession in the early stages and on 12 minutes, after patient build-up play, the ball was moved to Stiepermann on the left hand side but his right-footed shot went wide.

The Canaries were superior for the next 20 minutes with Yanic Wildschut twice forcing Bartosz Bialkowski into action and James Maddison, with a right-footed curler, and Cameron Jerome, with a point-blank header, both missing the target from good positions.

Ipswich finished the half strongly though and their best chance fell to David McGoldrick who headed an in-swinging corner over the bar, much to the dismay of the home support.

The second half continuted on the game’s topsy-turvy nature but it was City who seized the intiative on the hour mark. Wildschut and Stiepermann combined on the left-hand side and the latter fed Maddison just inside the box who picked out the far corner of Bialkowski’s goal with a precise finish.

There were worrying signs for City moments later when Christoph Zimmermann was forced to withdraw from the game through injury. However, his replacement Grant Hanley played a key role in a defensive unit which shut Ipswich out completely for the remainder of the game. The best chance they could muster was a Martyn Waghorn effort with seven minutes to play but he dragged his strike straight into the arms of Angus Gunn.

The fourth official held up four minutes on his board but City saw out the final stages to make it eight games unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship. The victory also extended their unbeaten run in East Anglian derbies to nine fixtures.
