This week presenter Edmund Crosthwaite and Ipswich Town writer Stuart Watson take an in-depth look at all things East Anglian Derby.

We discuss manager Mick McCarthy’s probable line-up, whether he will continue with the 3-5-2 wing-back formation and who Town’s key players well be.

There’s also a look at who Norwich’s danger men could be – and whether early Town pressure could turn the home fans against their side.

You can catch up with all the reaction from the Blues’ recent matches, and every Town game home and away, on our dedicated Ipswich Town page, where you’ll also find action shots, crowd pictures and previous episodes of this podcast.
