Today marks the 20th anniversary of one of the East Anglian Derby’s most iconic moments.
On this day, April 14, in 1996, Ipswich beat rivals Norwich 2-1 at Portman Road, with the winning goal becoming a moment which will never be forgotten by either side.
With the score locked at 1-1 heading into the closing minutes, Robert Ullathorne routinely rolled the ball back to legendary Norwich keeper Bryan Gunn who, following a bobble on the Portman Road pitch, kicked fresh air as the ball rolled under his foot and into the net.
Gunn slumped to the floor, with the 20,000-strong Portman Road screaming with delight.
The Blues went on to win, with Jamie Cureton having previously levelled after Ian Marshall’s opener.
