Wayne Ellis: Another season of utter mediocrity for us long suffering Ipswich fans...

Johnny Holmes: Old farm derby. Still the best OTBC!

FT: Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Ipswich's long wait for a win over Norwich goes on....

It's now eight and a half years since they got one over the Canaries.

Mick McCarthy still doesn't know what it's like to manage his Ipswich side to a derby win while Daniel Farke will probably want to play them every week after that.

FT: Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

So, Norwich climb into the top six with that huge win at their local rivals.

Ipswich fall a place to 11th.

Reaction: Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Goalscorer and man of the match James Maddison on Sky Sports:

"That's a game I won't forget for anytime soon, it was my first East Anglian Derby.

"We knew it would be a tight game throughout, but that little bit of quality and patience has seen us through."

FULL-TIME

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Three points go back to Norfolk yet again!

James Maddison's strike on the hour is enough to separate these two.

Ipswich are beaten for a third game in their past four. Norwich are now unbeaten in eight.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Waghorn's delivery, but Jonas Knudsen can't direct his near post header on target.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Late corner for Ipswich....Up comes their keeper...

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Ipswich again try to pump long balls up towards the edge of Norwich's area, but again the visitors can cope with it and clear their lines.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Close for Ipswich!

Martyn Waghorn has a volley blocked and then as he wins the second ball, his delicate chip just creeps over the bar of Angus Gunn's goal.

INJURY TIME

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Four minutes to be added on....

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Into last minute of the 90.

Ipswich look flat and need a moment of magic if they're to take anything here.

SUBSTITUTION

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Norwich have done a great job of closing this out so far since James Maddison's goal.

He is their last man to head off as Mario Vrancic comes on for the closing moments.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Lots of build-up for Ipswich, Norwich sit off on the edge of their area and soak it up.

Cole Skuse takes aim, but it's another routine stop for Angus Gunn despite the power on the shot.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Ipswich with the long throw across the Norwich six-yard box. The visitors' half clear, but Cole Skuse fails to connect on the volley and Angus Gunn can claim it.

Ipswich running out of ideas and minutes for a leveller.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Freddie Sears finds a bit of an opening for Ipswich on the edge of the Norwich box, but Martyn Waghorn can't get his feet right to set himself for the shot.

Groans continue from the home fans...

Into the last 10 minutes at Portman Road and as it stands, this lot will be going home the happier.

Norwich looking set to take the bragging rights once more in East Anglia unless Ipswich conjure up some magic.

SUBSTITUTION

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Norwich make a second change as Wes Hoolahan comes off and on comes James Husband to shore up the defence.

SUBSTITUTION

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Double change by Ipswich Town sees Joe Garner replaced by on loan Man City winger Bersant Celina while teenager Tristan Nydam makes way for Freddie Sears.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

No shot on target. That's the key statistic so far in this one for Ipswich.

They've had moments where they've pressured and threatened, but nothing has gone their way in the final third while Norwich have been clinical when given the chance.

YELLOW CARD

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Flynn Downes joins Luke Chambers on a booking now after a badly-timed tackle on Tom Trybull in Norwich's midfield.

YELLOW CARD

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Luke Chambers becomes the second Ipswich player in the book as he lunges in clumsily on goalscorer James Maddison.

Little going Ipswich's way since Maddison's goal.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

In case you just joined us, here's the moment James Maddison put Norwich ahead just before the hour mark.

Ipswich v Norwich
Rex Features

Plenty of scrapping from Ipswich, but little to lift the spirits of the home crowd as they fail to get the ball down.

Norwich just over 20 minutes away from extending their unbeaten run against their local rivals.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Change for Ipswich now as Tom Adeyemi makes way for Flynn Downes in the midfield.

A couple of youngsters on now in this cauldron of a derby for the hosts with Tristan Nydam and Downes for the hosts.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Norwich clearly buoyed by that goal for James Maddison as again they surge forward.

Wes Hoolahan and Yanic Wildschut full of energy as Ipswich have to be on watch to clear.

A first change of the afternoon sees Grant Hanley replace Christoph Zimmermann in the Norwich defence.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

That's five goals in his past four away games for James Maddison so it's fair to say, you'd have been offered pretty short odds on him getting the opener.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

Ipswich search for an immediate response but two corners fail to find it.

Norwich City fans in full voice now.

Ipswich Town 0-1 Norwich City

James Maddison (59 mins)

And there is the breakthrough!

Norwich take the lead and the man who threatened a couple of times in the first-half, James Maddison, strikes a right-foot effort into Bartosz Bialkowski's goal.

Norwich take full advantage on the break and Maddison enjoys every second of it as he runs away in celebration.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Cole Skuse takes a while to get back on his feet after a crunching challenge with Yanic Wildschut in midfield.

Skuse has been ever-present so far for Ipswich this season and Mick McCarthy looks concerned for his player.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Here's a picture that sums it up for Ipswich so far in this....

Ips misses
Rex Features

Several decent openings for the hosts, but as yet, no killer final touch for the goal.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

David McGoldrick again in the thick of it for Ipswich coming forward.

Jordan Spence stands up a nice ball for him from the right to the penalty spot, but McGoldrick can't quite get enough power or direction on it towards Angus Gunn's goal.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

...Ipswich get it clear and then Maddison runs out of inches to the byline as Cole Skuse forces him out of play.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Quick corner form Norwich does win a free-kick this time right on the edge of Ipswich's box...

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Yanic Wildschut picks up form where he left off in that first half for Norwich as he carries the ball forward easily on the left side to the edge of the Ipswich area.

James Maddison rather ambitiously tries to win a free-kick as he loses out in a tussle with Jonas Knudsen.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Marco Stiepermann is smarting a bit after a clash with Jordan Spence.

The Norwich left-back seems OK to continue though after a bit of a knock to the face.

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Ball spends a lot of time in the air early in this second half as neither side can get it down.

Not much to shout about since the resumption.

KICK-OFF

Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

And we're off again....

45 minutes left and who will be going home the happier come full-time in East Anglia?

Teams back out...

HT: Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Here they come again.

Norwich make Ipswich wait a while out on the pitch though before heading out themselves.

No sign of any changes as yet from either side...

First half in pictures

HT: Ipswich Town 0-0 Norwich City

Here's a couple of images that tell a bit of a tale of the first 45 minutes at Portman Road.

Ipswich left-back Jonas Knudsen was inches from his third goal in as many games against Norwich as he struck a post early on...

Hits post Knudsen

Elsewhere, Joe Garner was among those who probably should've done better with their chances in front of goal for the hosts...

Joe Garner dejected

We'll be back under way for the second half soon.
