  • FT: Ipswich 0 Norwich 1. Lewis Grabban's first-half header earns The Canaries a derby win, but the winning margin should have been far greater with the chances that they had.

  • Redmond fires a fizzing low strike at goal, which Gerken gets down well to save. Really was travelling at some speed.

  • Three minutes of added time

  • Route very much the order of the moment for the home side. Launching it forward at every opportunity. Limited success though.

  • Henshall tries to orchestrate a move down the left flank, but his cross goes harmlessly into the side netting.

  • Gary O'Neill comes on in place of Wes Hoolahan as Neil Adams looks to make sure of the points.

  • Tyrone mIngs goes into the book after bringing down Tettey on the halfway line. Worrh the caution with Tettey clear.

  • Another effort at goal from Norwich, with Bradley Johnson denied from the angle by a smart save from Gerken at his near post.

  • Ipswich whipping several crosses into the box, all very dangerous, but the Norwich defence just about deal with the danger.

  • Great defending from Mings to keep Redmond out on the break. Used his strength to keep the pacey wideman out of harms way.

  • The ball finds Russell Martin at the back post, and his shot is blocked, with loud appeals fro handball waved away by the referee.

  • Norwich dangerous on the counter attack, but Elliot Bennett's cross is blocked out for a corner. Was an attack of real pace.

  • Triple substitution for the home side. Hyam is replaced by Kevin Bru, Anderson is replaced by Connor Sammon and Alex Henshall is on for Jay Tabb.

  • Wes Hoolahan really pulling the strings in the middle of the park for Norwich, and is at the heart of everything good about the visitors.

  • Long balls seem like the way to go for Ipswich, as they are having very little joy with their passing game at the moment.

  • Anderson drifts off the wing, has a run at the defence but he mishits his effort at goal, and Ruddy gets down easily to gather.

  • Bradley Johnson this time with a curling effort at goal, but it is too close to Gerken, and the stopper easily keeps it out.

  • CHANCE!!! Another great chance for Grabban. Played in, in acres of space, runs too wide, rounds Gerken but his shot at goal is cleared off the line. Needs to put one of these away.

  • SAVE!!! Excellent work from Grabban bringing the ball under control quickly, and curling a great effort at goal, which Gerken does really well to get across to and save.

  • McGoldrick struggles to latch onto a header from deep, but just manages to get the shot away, which is saved by John Ruddy at his near post
