It’s the East Anglian derby on Sunday as Ipswich Town host Norwich City in the EFL Championship – and we were at Portman Road to tee it up.

Inside the venue for Sunday’s latest clash between Norfolk and Suffolk, Michael Bailey hosts our video debate with chief correspondents: Ipswich Town writer Stuart Watson and Norwich City reporter Paddy Davitt.

They gave their views on how their respective sides of the Waveney divide head into Sunday’s derby.

City head into the game unbeaten in eight matches, although they had to rely on a 96th minute equaliser to pick up a draw against 10-man Hull at Carrow Road last time out.

Meanwhile, Town’s form has rather stuttered since their lightning start to the season – a 1-0 defeat at high-flying Sheffield United bringing a fifth defeat in seven league outings.

Nelson Oliveira’s pre-derby quotes have certainly stoked the build-up, while Town are hoping a knee injury to Joe Garner doesn’t keep their lively striker from making his first derby appearance.
