Norwich City v Ipswich Town: The Last Five at Carrow RoadAhead of Sunday's crunch meeting between the Canaries and their fierce rivals, we take a look back at the five previous games between Norwich City and Ipswich Town at Carrow Road.
NORWICH CITY 4-1 IPSWICH TOWN
Sunday November 28, 2010
Grant Holt's inspirational hat-trick fired City to a memorable 4-1 triumph over Ipswich last time out at Carrow Road.
One of the highest points of the Canaries' promotion-winning campaign in 2010-11, Paul Lambert's side led 2-1 at the break thanks to Holt's brace, although Damien Delaney's header had briefly given the visitors hope.
Delaney was dismissed before half-time for hauling back Holt, however, and Norwich pressed home their advantage with their talismanic frontman completing his hat-trick before Wes Hoolahan topped the day off with a deft chip 12 minutes from time.
The win pushed City up to fifth after 19 games in the Championship. They would go onto finish second behind Queens Park Rangers to secure Premier League football for the 2011-12 campaign.
NORWICH CITY 2-0 IPSWICH TOWN
Sunday December 7, 2008
Two second half goals edged Glenn Roeder's City to a vital home win at Carrow Road in December 2008.
Lee Croft and Matty Pattison (pictured) netted after half-time to secure three points that, at the time, pulled the Canaries away from the Championship relegation places.
"The supporters played such a big part in today's victory. The atmosphere was absolutely brilliant inside the stadium. Our lads were hugely motivated," said Roeder after the game.
Despite earning the local bragging rights that afternoon, City would go to suffer demotion to League One at the end of the season.
NORWICH CITY 2-2 IPSWICH TOWN
Sunday November 4, 2007
City staged an impressive second half turnaround to earn a point in Glenn Roeder's first match as manager.
Ipswich went into the interval 2-0 ahead through Alan Lee and Pablo Counago, but Norwich were to strike back after the break.
An Owen Garvan own goal halved their deficit, before Jamie Cureton's (pictured) neat finish levelled the game on 67 minutes.
The spoils were shared, and Roeder would go on to guide City to safety with a 17th place finish come the end of the season.
NORWICH CITY 1-1 IPSWICH TOWN
Sunday April 22, 2007
A former Canary scored to deny Norwich three points at Carrow Road back in April 2007.
David Wright, who previously had a short loan stint with City in 2005, netted midway through the second half for Jim Magilton's side.
Dickson Etuhu (pictured) had nodded home Darren Huckerby's cross after just five minutes to put the hosts in front.
Peter Grant was boss at the time, and Norwich would finish the season in 16th place, two places below their rivals.
NORWICH CITY 1-2 IPSWICH TOWN
Sunday February 5, 2006
Ipswich's last win at Carrow Road came in controversial circumstances when they beat City 2-1 in February 2006.
Danny Haynes (pictured) appeared to help the ball home with his hand just two minutes from time, even though the winning goal was officially recorded as an own goal by Gary Doherty.
Norwich had taken the lead through loan striker Jonatan Johansson, but Jimmy Juan levelled for Joe Royle's team before the late drama.
City did eventually finish above Town in the table, securing a ninth place finish in May.
