'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Norwich City vs. Ipswich Town

Carrow Road

Sunday 28th November 2010

The Big East Anglian Derby Preview

The time for talking is almost over as the Canaries welcome local rivals Ipswich Town to Carrow Road for the East Anglian derby.

It is the first meeting between the two sides at the home of football for nearly two year, and City boss Paul Lambert will be watching from the stands after being handed a two-match touchline ban for comments made after the Reading game earlier this month.

The Tractor Boys come into the game on the back of three straight defeats with some supporters calling for the head of Agent Keane, and sit 16th in the Championship table - still only five points adrift of the play-offs.

Vital Quotes:

City boss Paul Lambert (canaries.co.uk):

'I'm sure all the Norwich fans are looking forward to it and they'll want to get one over their nearest rivals and this is probably the closest derby there has been for a long while.

'But we've earned the right to put ourselves in a position to take them on, but at the same time also know how vital it is.'

Ipswich manager Roy Keane (itfc.co.uk):

'We know what the game means to the fans and it's a good opportunity for us to get back on track.

'It's a derby game and we all know what they are like. They are hard to predict and in a sense, form goes out of the window. That might be a good thing for us though because although the effort has been fine over the last three games, we have lost football matches.'

Norwich City Team News:

New signing Henri Lansbury goes straight into the squad fresh from his arrival from Arsenal on loan, and Andrew Surman is expected to feature after the former Wolves man played an hour last weekend. More...

Player to watch: Grant Holt

The City captain is playing in his first East Anglian derby and will be desperate to leave his mark on the game.

Looks to be getting back to the sort of form that allowed him to score goals for fun in League One last season.

Ipswich Town Team News:

Much-hyped youngster Connor Wickham is out for Ipswich after picking up a thigh injury in a reserve game against Tottenham in midweek, as is Tom Eastman (groin), Mark Kennedy and Luke Hyam (both hamstring). More...

Player to watch: Jason Scotland

Alex Tuck ran the rule over several key players for Town this week, including marquee signing Jason Scotland. More...

Head-to-Head

Lunchtime's East Anglian derby will be the 96th meeting of the two sides. Town have the edge with 43 wins to City's 35, with 17 games finishing even. More...

Ref Watch:

Hertfordshire official Keith Hill is the man in charge of the big game. More...

Keep up-to-date

This weekend's East Anglian Derby will be easiest to follow for years, as supporters on both sides of the divide can keep up-to-date on TV, radio and t'internet. More...
