IPSWICH Town plunged East Anglian rivals Norwich City deeper into relegation trouble after coming from behind in the sunshine at Portman Road.

Bryan Gunn's Canaries took the lead with a header from David Mooney but Alan Quinn levelled for the Blues after great work from on-loan Mexican international Giovani Dos Santos sent him clear.

The teenager, who is on loan from Tottenham, then converted a contentious second-half penalty to cap a performance of Premier League quality which illustrated why Spurs were willing to spend over �4million to bring him from Barcelona last summer.

Substitute Jon Stead then hit a late third to confirm a costly defeat for Norwich, who grabbed a last-minute consolation through Sammy Clingan.

Norwich are a point adrift of safety with just two games remaining and could be left to rue the soft penalty decision for Giovani's goal if they find themselves in League One next season.
