  • A jet lagged Tommy Smith would have been better than Bradley Orr.

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers admitted he didn’t know whether he was coming or going as speculation mounted over his future on deadline day.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy knows a long-awaited victory against bitter rivals Norwich City would go a long way to salvaging some pride from a stuttering season.

It may have been the Full Members Cup, but Simon Milton’s strike against Norwich City, is fondly remembered as any goal that has been scored by an Ipswich Town player in an East Anglia Derby.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has got a welcome selection headache ahead of Sunday’s East Anglian derby against bitter rivals Norwich City, at Carrow Road (12pm ko, Sky Sports).

The thought of playing bitter rivals Norwich City at the end of a sequence of Championship games that included Reading, Aston Villa, Brighton and Leeds, was enough to send a shudder down the spines of the most optimistic of Ipswich Town fans.

In today’s look back at famous derby days of the past, TERRY HUNT remembers the ‘Destruction Derby’, a remarkable 5-0 triumph back in February 1998.

Norwich sports writer David Freezer takes a look at the storylines surrounding Norwich City in the run up to Sunday’s derby day clash.

Mick McCarthy says David McGoldrick is back to his best, as the Blues look to plot the downfall of Norwich City, without talismanic frontman, Tom Lawrence.

There isn’t usually a downside to being a guest of honour at Wembley, and former Ipswich Town hero Simon Milton is relishing his trip there for this Sunday’s EFL Cup final between Manchester United and Southampton.

Ipswich Town head to Carrow Road for the East Anglia derby on Sunday, aiming to pick up their first victory from the bitter encounter in seven years.
