  1. Third to face fourth

    FT: Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    So Norwich will make their first Wembley appearance since they beat Sunderland in the 1985 League Cup final.

    Middlesbrough stand in their way as the Canaries look to make an immediate return to the Premier League, after relegation last season.

    That should be some play-off final on Monday, 25 May. Do be sure to join us then.

    But what an afternoon it has been. Norwich fans will no doubt want to have a read of Phil Shepka's report from Carrow Road to re-live their joyous win once more.

    Until next time, thanks for joining us.

  2. Post update

    FT: Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Norwich boss Alex Neil tells Sky Sports:

    "I don't think there was much in the game. The game was relatively even.

    "The red card completely changed the match. I'm really disappointed that we conceded a goal after that, but I'm really pleased with the spirit we showed after that.

    "I'm extremely proud of the players. To go though against your closest rivals as well really is a cherry on top of the cake.

    "Middlesbrough is going to be tough. It is a winner takes all. I expect both teams to be going for it. We're really looking forward to it."

    FT: Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Norwich's opening goalscorer Wes Hoolahan tells Sky Sports:

    "It was always going to be tough but we're looking forward to facing Boro next Monday now.

    "I'm happy enough that (my penalty) went in.

    "Alex Neil has been brilliant since he came in. All the players have risen to the challenge."

  5. Post update

    FT: Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Norwich striker Cameron Jerome tells Sky Sports:

    "It took a decision to change the game. Credit to Ipswich, even with 10 men they came back fighting.

    "It was a little bit of a relief to get the third goal. I think it took a bit of the wind out of Ipswich's sails.

    "Middlesbrough are a good side so we won't take them lightly whatsoever."

  6. Post update

    FT: Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Phil Shepka

    BBC Sport at Carrow Road

    "The speakers blast out 'Que Sera' and 'London Calling' here at Carrow Road as the Norwich fans celebrate reaching Wembley.

    "The mood though has the potential to turn sour with their fierce rivals in such close proximity, meaning a number of police horses are out on the pitch keeping supporters apart."

  7. Post update

    FT: Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Wow, that was some second half, wasn't it?

    The tie all seemed to hinge on that big moment when Christophe Berra saved with his hand, on the line, and was sent off. It was always going to be tough for Ipswich from then onwards, even though they did draw level through Tommy Smith, showing great character.

    But the pace of Nathan Redmond and clinical finishing of Cameron Jerome has sent Norwich through.


    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)


    Well, there we have it. Norwich have beaten Ipswich and will face Middlesbrough in the Championship play-off final at Wembley!

  9. YELLOW CARD Cole Skuse

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Cole Skuse goes in the book as Ipswich's frustration grows.

  10. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    David McGoldrick fires wide and that should be that.

    There's about to be a bit of a party at Carrow Road.

  11. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    John Ruddy saves well from Freddie Sears, but the offside flag was raised anyway. Ipswich haven't given up, but the game really is up for them now.

  12. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    We'll have four minutes of added time. Norwich are almost there.

  13. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    The Norwich fans are loving this. They're moments away from a massive, massive win over their rivals.

    It was a tight first half but things have really unravelled for Ipswich since the break.


    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Bradley Johnson is replaced, as Norwich look to rest their Player of the Year for the final, and Elliott Bennett comes on.


    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Noel Hunt comes on for Paul Anderson, as Ipswich make their final change.

    Meanwhile, Gary Hooper replaces Cameron Jerome, and the Norwich fans rise to applause Jerome after yet another determined, battling performance from him.

    Jerome's 20th goal of the season is the goal that looks to have put this tie beyond Ipswich.

  16. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Nathan Redmond is involved once again, showing a great touch to control a long ball, turn and blast towards goal, but he fires over.

  17. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Tyrone Mings does well to get back and intervene as Nathan Redmond burst clear and looked sure to add a fourth goal for Norwich.

    Redmond perhaps should have scored, but Norwich have a two-goal cushion. Carrow Road is expectant now of a place in the final against Middlesbrough.

  18. Post update

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)

    Phil Shepka

    BBC Sport at Carrow Road

    "Norwich fans think that Jerome goal has sealed victory, and they are enjoying every moment of this. Beach balls and rubber dingys are being thrown around Carrow Road, but are they celebrating just a little prematurely?"

  19. GOAL Cameron Jerome

    Norwich 3-1 Ipswich (agg 4-2)


    That should be Norwich through to Wembley!

    Nathan Redmond plays a precise pass through to Cameron Jerome, who does brilliantly to just tuck the ball under the on-rushing Bartosz Bialkoski and it trickles into the net.

    The two former Birmingham City players combined brilliantly there to clinically kill this game off. Surely 10 man Ipswich can't come back from here?


    Norwich 2-1 Ipswich (agg 3-2)

    Norwich's Wes Hoolahan comes off to be replaced by Graham Dorrans.

    Hoolahan's penalty seems like an age ago already, as so much has happened since, but it was a crucial moment in this tie.


    Norwich 2-1 Ipswich (agg 3-2)

    Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy makes two changes, with Jay Tabb and David McGoldrick coming on for Teddy Bishop and Kevin Bru.

    Is that a double change that could keep their promotion hopes alive?

  22. CLOSE!

    Norwich 2-1 Ipswich (agg 3-2)

    Cameron Jerome flicks just wide but he really, really should have scored. The ball comes across to him in the six-yard box and he has the goal gaping in front of him, but can't quite force it in.

  23. Post update

    Norwich 2-1 Ipswich (agg 3-2)

    Phil Shepka

    BBC Sport at Carrow Road

    "Where did this come from? That first half never promised much, but this has been an incredibly topsy-turvy second half. Maybe they were all just saving their energy. However this game is far, far from over."

  24. Post update

    Norwich 2-1 Ipswich (agg 3-2)

    Wes Hoolahan drives towards goal and shoots left-footed straight at the keeper. The games is really, really stretched at the moment.

    And Bradley Johnson goes close moments later. Norwich have grabbed the impetus again.

    Ipswich have gone from despair, to delirium, to despair again, all in the space of a few minutes. Astonishing stuff.

  25. GOAL Nathan Redmond

    Norwich 2-1 Ipswich (agg 3-2)


    Norwich are back in front and it's Nathan Redmond with the goal. Jonny Howson has time to shoot himself but he squares the ball to Redmond, who smashes the ball low and hard through Bartosz Bialkowski.

    Carrow Road goes wild once again. Ipswich were level for less than five minutes.

    What a frantic second half we have had so far!

  26. GOAL Tommy Smith

    Norwich 1-1 Ipswich (agg 2-2)

    Tommy Smith scores

    The 10 men are level!

    A free-kick is sent deep into the box, Daryl Murphy heads the ball down and Tommy Smith nips in to knock the ball past John Ruddy and slot into an empty net. Norwich were asleep at the back there. And Ipswich have pounced!

    Game on!

  27. Post update

    Norwich 1-0 Ipswich (agg 2-1)

    Norwich can smell blood. They want to kill this tie off here and now. They've got all the momentum and Ipswich need to calm things down a little bit and work their way back into this game.

  28. Post update

    Norwich 1-0 Ipswich (agg 2-1)

    Phil Shepka

    BBC Sport at Carrow Road

    Norwich fans

    "That goal has lifted the metaphorical roof off of Carrow Road. Credit has to go to Wes Hoolahan for stepping up there under £120m worth of pressure.

    "And as seems so often the case these days, a flare has been set off by the Norwich fans as they sing Que Sera!"

  29. Post update

    Norwich 1-0 Ipswich (agg 2-1)

    That has changed things, more than a little bit. What a disastrous 60 seconds for Ipswich, losing Christophe Berra (who had arguably been their best player so far today) and going a goal down.

    The pendulum has very much swung Norwich's way.

    The hosts come forward again but Cameron Jerome can't get enough power on his shot.

  30. GOAL Wes Hoolahan (pen)

    Norwich 1-0 Ipswich (agg 2-1)

    Wes Hoolahan scores

    Wes Hoolahan is the coolest man at Carrow Road as he steps up to put Norwich in front. He slots the ball low into the bottom corner, sending the keeper the wrong way.

    The home crowd erupt. What a start to the second half for Alex Neil's side!

  31. RED CARD Christophe Berra

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Christophe Berra

    And a red card is swiftly shown to the uncomplaining Christophe Berra. He knew that was coming. Ipswich will play the rest of this game with 10 men.


    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    That's poor from Ipswich! They gift possession to Norwich and Wes Hoolahan plays in Nathan Redmond, whose goalbound shot is clearly handled on the line by Christophe Berra. Referee Roger East has no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

  33. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Stephen Fry

    Norwich almost score straight from the re-start, and it's frantic in the Ipswich penalty area.

    Wes Hoolahan does well and Cameron Jerome has the ball with his back to goal inside the six-yard box. He goes down while trying to turn and shot and Norwich want a penalty, but it was good defending in the end from Ipswich

  34. KICK-OFF

  37. Finding a winner

    HT: Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Just to remind you all, the away goals rule does not apply in the play-offs.

    So, if the score stays like this, we will have extra-time, and maybe even penalties.

    On the evidence of the first half, it could be a very dramatic finish here at Carrow Road.

  38. Post update

    HT: Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Ipswich fans

    "Ipswich fans chant 'Boring, boring Norwich', but if they're honest, their team haven't been much better. But what the game has lacked in chances, it's made up for in endeavour.

    "Every single ball is being contested as if the whole world depended on it. Will we find a breakthrough after the half-time oranges?"

    For the Middlesbrough fans out there, take a listen to BBC Radio 5 live sports extra at half-time when they will be looking back at last night's victory over Brentford which sent the Teessiders to Wembley.


    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    The players head off for a half-time orange after 45 minutes of a tense derby game that has so much riding on it.

    Mick McCarthy's team will arguably be the slightly happier side at the break, but it's been even.

  41. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Three minutes of added time have been indicated at the end of this half.

  42. Post update

    "It has been scrappy. I didn't expect a classic, I expected it to be hard fought, which it has been."

  44. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Wes Hoolahan makes a good run forward and finds Jonny Howson, who has space and time to shoot, but Tyrone Mings blocks his side-footed effort.

    That was Norwich's best move so far.

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Ipswich are playing a very high line here. They're pushing forward in numbers when they've got the ball, determined to take this game to Norwich.

    Neither keeper has really had a proper save to make yet, but it's tense. Very tense.

  52. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Cameron Jerome and Tommy Smith tussle

    Cameron Jerome refuses to give up on a bouncing, long ball forward, and Bartosz Bialkowski has to be brave to get down and claw the ball away from his feet.

    Ipswich were a tad indecisive at the back there, and Jerome almost took advantage.

  53. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Well, it's been a high-energy start. Ipswich will be pleased with the pressure they have put on the Norwich back line, but the hosts have found their feet in the last five or 10 minutes.

    Teddy Bishop goes down in the Norwich penalty area but the referee dismisses any appeals for a spot-kick.

    "The Norwich fans around me were already celebrating as if they'd scored, but last week's goalscorer Paul Anderson was there to deny them.

    "Still, every touch of the ball is either cheered or jeered. This match means so much to both clubs."

  55. CLOSE!

    Norwich 0-0 Ipswich (agg 1-1)

    Russell Martin fires a low shot at goal which goes past a crowd of players and is cleared off the line by Ipswich's Paul Anderson.

    That's the closest either side have come to a goal.

    If Ipswich are going to record a famous win here, the chances are it will mean that Daryl Murphy has played a big role.

  69. Reason to be cheerful

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Norwich v Ipswich

    If that's left you blue, Ipswich fans, here's a reason to be cheerful.

    Ipswich's last win at Carrow Road came in February 2006 when a late Gary Doherty own goal gave them all three points in a 2-1 win.

    Jonathan Johansson had put the Canaries ahead just after the half hour, but that was soon cancelled out by Jimmy Juan.

  70. History against the Tractor Boys

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Norwich celebrate

    Norwich fans might quite enjoy this. Ipswich fans look away now.

    If you were following the form guide in this fixture then you would have to fancy the Canaries. Here's why:

    Norwich have won each of their last three at Carrow Road against Ipswich, and are unbeaten in five against their rivals.

    Ipswich have gone seven away games against the Canaries without a clean sheet and are winless in five East Anglian derbies.

    Ipswich haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last 15 matches against Norwich.

    And finally... Ipswich have never won an away leg of a play-off tie before.

    What a time this would be to break that duck.

  71. Mick's play-off blues

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Mick McCarthy

    Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy is in his fourth play-off campaign as a manager - and he's yet to get past the semi-final stage.

    The former Republic of Ireland boss lost out at the last four stage with Millwall, Sunderland and Wolves, but will be hoping the Tractor Boys can help him banish the play-off blues.

  72. Wembley talk not banned

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy has led both Sunderland and Wolves to automatic promotion, but has never been to a play-off final.

    But he hasn't been banning talk of a potential trip down Wembley way.

    Mick McCarthy

    "Talk of Wembley isn't banned, why would we? We're excited about the prospect of getting to Wembley and perhaps getting to the Premier League," he said.

    "I don't think either team deserved to win the game [at Portman Road] but I'd settle for playing as well as that again.

    "They're the favourites as the home team, just as we expect to win when we're at home."

  73. The Neil effect

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Alex Neil has certainly made an impact at Norwich - even if still needs to finish his coaching badges.

    The 33-year-old replaced Neil Adams in January with the club seventh in the Championship, three points outside the play-offs.

    He led them to a third-placed finish and, as you can see, his record has been pretty impressive.

    Alex Neil's record at Norwich
  74. Nerves 'no bad thing'

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Alex Neil

    There's bound to be tension at Carrow Road with so much at stake.

    But Norwich boss Alex Neil believes that could be to his side's advantage.

    "The build-up to big matches is important to get everybody prepared and focused and hopefully we can make it as good an occasion as everybody expects it to be," he said.

    "I don't think a little bit of nerves is a bad thing. I think if anything it just shows the importance of the game and also how important it is to them and how much they want to succeed and make sure they move on to the next match.

    "It only becomes an issue if it starts to affect your performance and I don't think that'll be the case."

  75. Norwich Grabban the league points

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Lewis Grabban

    It was the Canaries who were singing after the two league meetings between the sides.

    Summer signing from Bournemouth Lewis Grabban scored the only goal as Neil Adams's Norwich won 1-0 at Portman Road back in August.

    And he was on target again, alongside Bradley Johnson, in the return at Carrow Road in March as the Canaries, by now under the leadership of Alex Neil, ran out 2-0 victors.

  76. Post update

    Fan at Carrow Road

    "This game barely needs an introduction, but I'm going to try and do it justice anyway.

    "The intensity of the first half of last week's 1-1 draw at Portman Road encapsulated all that is great not only about the East Anglian derby, but about the play-offs in general.

    "That these two great giants of the East should meet to fight for a place in the top flight is a strange twist of fate.

    "But the former stars are out in force at Carrow Road today, including George Burley, the only manager to have been promoted with Ipswich via the play-offs in their seven attempts.

    "Six of those have ended at the semi-final stage, and Norwich will hope to make it seven today as they bid to make an instant return to the top flight."

    Norwich v Ipswich (12:15 BST)

    Middlesbrough have already booked their place in the final, after a convincing 5-1 aggregate win over Brentford.

    Leading 2-1 after the first leg, Aitor Karanka's side scored three times without reply at the Riverside on Friday night to seal a first visit to Wembley since 1998.

    Lee Tomlin, Kike and Albert Adomah grabbed the goals on a memorable night for Boro and their fans.
