Fans heading to Norwich City's play-off semi-final second leg clash with Ipswich Town tomorrow have been urged to arrive early - with the promise of special guests before kick off.

And Canaries boss Alex Neil has said the supporters have a 'massive part' to play in the Canaries' attempts to reach Wembley.

Sold-out Carrow Road will be turned into a sea of yellow and green with the Canaries teaming up with sponsors Aviva to distribute 25,000 flags to fans in all home areas for the match.

The flags will be waiting for Norwich fans when they take their seats for the eagerly-awaited clash, which kicks off at 12.15pm and will also be screened live on Sky Sports.

Supporters are strongly advised to get to the ground early for the game in order to enjoy and take part in the pre-match build-up - and to help avoid congestion and queues as kick-off approaches.
