As derby rivalries are put to bed for another season, we’ve taken a look at the facts and figures of Norwich City’s dominance of neighbours Ipswich Town in recent years.

TEN

Norwich City are now unbeaten in their last 10 matches against Ipswich Town, winning six but with three of the last four finishing in 1-1 draws – scoring 20 goals and conceding seven. Sunday’s draw extended what was already the longest unbeaten run in the history of the fixture.

NINE

In April it will be nine years since Town have won an East Anglian derby, back in April 2009, when Jon Stead’s late goal made sure of a 3-2 win at Portman Road.

EIGHT

The Tractor Boys now haven’t won at Carrow Road in their last eight attempts, stretching back to a 2-1 win in February 2006 – and a controversial handball goal from Danny Haynes. This is City’s longest ever unbeaten home run against their rivals.

TWO

Town have won just two of the last 18 games in Norfolk, with the Canaries winning 10 of those fixtures

TOTAL

21 of the 103 league and cup games in the history of the East Anglian derby have finished in a draw, 13 at Carrow Road and eight at Portman Road. Town just have the overall edge, with 42 wins to City’s 40, although that is including two victories in the Texaco Cup.

LEAGUE

Sunday’s game was the 90th league meeting of the teams but just the 18th to finish in a draw. Ipswich again just have the edge overall in league games, with 38 wins to Norwich’s 34 since the first recorded league meeting back in September 1946.

SECOND TIER

The majority of the 90 league meetings (54) have been in the Championship, or the Second Division as it was known before 1992. The Canaries just have the edge in the second tier, with 20 victories to the Tractors Boys’ 19, and the remaining 15 finishing in draws.

GOALS

City have added two goals to their historical tally this season, following October’s 1-0 win at Portman Road, to take their league total to 106 and up to 124 in all competitions. Ipswich have scored 134 in the league and 149 overall.

DOUBLES

The Canaries missed their chance for just a seventh league double over the Blues, who have managed it five times.
