A LAST-minute winner by Simon Lappin for Norwich City last night pushed nervous Ipswich a place closer to the relegation zone.

City's 3-2 win at Kenilworth Road puts them two points ahead of the Blues while Ipswich slip to 18th in the table and the Canaries have at least one game in hand over all the clubs below them.

The East Anglian rivals meet at Carrow Road on Sunday, April 22 in what could be an interesting final three-game run-in to the end of the season.

More immediately, the Blues have a crucial home game with third-from-bottom QPR on Saturday where a win could lift them two place but defeat would see them dragged closer to the relegation mire.

Luton stay a point above Hull and QPR who in turn are four points clear of Southend and Leeds and Ipswich go to Kenilworth Road later this month. The importance of Town's 5-0 win over Luton, whatever the circumstances surrounding the game, are shown in the goal difference column.
