The Canaries will need to take care not to concede their eighth penalty of the season in Sunday's derby encounter with Ipswich.

Town midfielder Tommy Miller maintained his immaculate record from the spot to ensure a 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield United on Saturday - and now has City in his sights.

Miller, 29, said: "It is a massive derby game in these parts and we go there looking forward to the game and to turn them over.

"Form goes out of the window in derby games. It doesn't matter where they are in the league. Norwich have had a bad spell and may not be as confident but it is a fresh slate."
