Sunday afternoon is a more lively affair than normal for Norwich City fans this weekend, as an excellent win at Ipswich is soaked up and momentum continues to build under head coach Daniel Farke.

James Maddison’s strike in the 59th minute was the decisive moment at Portman Road, wrapping up a fifth successive away win for the Canaries, with his third goal in four games.

The in-form playmaker cemented his place as a fans’ favourite by becoming the derby day hero, stretching City’s unbeaten run in the East Anglian derby to nine matches.

The win has lifted the Canaries into sixth place and extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to nine matches, ahead of another big game on Tuesday.

All 8,800 tickets available have been sold for a Carabao Cup fourth round tie at premier League giants Arsenal, sending the Canaries and their fans to the Emirates in high spirits.
