Fresh from Norwich City’s pre-match press conference ahead of their EFL Championship East Anglian derby clash with Ipswich Town at Carrow Road on Sunday, Mustard sports editor Michael Bailey and Eastern Daily Press chief writer Paddy Davitt give their views from Colney.
Norwich City manager Alex Neil and Irish star Wes Hoolahan were quizzed by our reporters and the rest of the gathered media, at the Canaries’ Colney Training Centre.
They chatted through their desperate defeat at Burton last time out, their improving injury bulletin and what lies in store on Sunday.
Norwich host their arch derby rivals for a 12pm kick-off with Ivo Pinto, Steven Naismith and Youssouf Mulumbu all back in contention to feature following spells on the sidelines.
The EFL Championship rivals shared a 1-1 draw at Portman Road in the opening month of the season, while both sides head into the derby in generally better form than they’ve managed for much of the campaign.
