At the Murderers in Timberhill, supporters clad in green and yellow were almost spilling out the door as they enjoyed the game.

And at the Coach and Horses, on Thorpe Road, a triumphant roar went up as James Maddison scored to secure the win.

Before the goal, Richard Woods, from Norwich, said things were going much as expected.

The 50-year-old said: “Obviously we want a Norwich win but also just to see them go and play some good football.”

Dylan Green and Max Aldous were behind the bar, and said the atmosphere in the pub had been “wonderful”.

Mr Green said: “It makes you feel proud to be a pub in Norwich.”

After the winning goal 16-year-old Jordan Bowler was quick to text his Ipswich-fan friends to rub it in.

“We’ve just got to hold it now,” he said.

Brian Dickinson, Colin Loveday, Alec White, and Christine Woods - all Norwich City stewards - broke into a rendition of On the Ball City at full time.

Mr White said: “You want the Norwich stewards there - it’s clear we’re the better team on the day.”

Mr Dickinson is retiring as a steward this year, after 45 years. He said both the game and being a steward were “brilliant”.
