For Canaries fans and arch rivals Ipswich there really is no bigger game.

And with the first East Anglian derby of the season almost upon us we are urging Norwich fans to follow the lead of City striker Nelson Oliveira.

The Portuguese striker is the man of the moment having scored late, late on to help salvage a point against Hull at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Oliveira has continued to be the focus of attention following his pre-match comments ahead of his first ever derby for the club.

The City star said “we are better than them, we have better players than them, we are a better club than them”.

Those words will ensure he gets a ‘red hot’ welcome on Sunday, but they should also be a call to arms to Norwich fans.

Nelson has spoken and Nelson is right so lets be ‘aving you!
