All you need to know: Norwich City v Ipswich Town

8 February 2019

City’s home leg of the East Anglian derby will see Ipswich Town travel to Carrow Road on Sunday in the Sky Bet Championship (kick-off 12pm).

Norwich moved to the top of the table last week after a 3-1 win over Leeds United at Elland Road, while the Blues go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday at home.

In their last meeting back in September at Portman Road, both teams enjoyed a share of the points with a 70th minute strike from Moritz Leitner ending the game 1-1.

Meet the opposition

Ipswich have won one of their last five games with a 1-0 victory over Rotherham at home on January 12 and currently sit at the bottom of the Championship table on 18 points.

Former Norwich boss Paul Lambert was appointed as manager for the Blues in October, replacing Paul Hurst who had been in post since the end of May.

Ipswich got their first win under Lambert against Wigan on December 15, and prior to that had only picked up one other victory, winning 3-2 against Swansea at the start of October.

Since then, the Tractor Boys have picked up four more points with a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United and their win over Rotherham.

Ipswich are currently eight points off safety, sitting below Bolton Wanderers and Reading.

The Blues’ top goal scorer so far this season is Freddie Sears with six goals and four assists, followed by Gwion Edwards and Kayden Jackson who both have four goals and one assist.
