Alan Judge believes the Ipswich Town fans at Carrow Road can give the team ‘that extra 10 per cent’ on derby day.

Two thousand Blues fans will be inside Carrow Road for tomorrow’s game, in what is sure to be a red hot atmosphere as Paul Lambert returns to his former club as manager of Ipswich Town.

Judge is excited for his first taste of the East Anglian derby and believes supporters have a real role to play.

“These are the games you want to play in and I’ve been lucky to play in some games like this during my career,” he said.

“The way the lads have been talking about it, it’s definitely the big one and they say form goes out the window and hopefully we can put one over on them.
