Anticipation is growing in the city centre as Norwich City fans prepare for the club's crunch match with Blackburn Rovers this evening.
Supporters are already making their way into the city to soak up the atmosphere, with flags, scarves and foam fingers at the ready.
Pubs in the city centre are awash with yellow and green as fans anxiously wait for what could be the defining moment of the Championship season.
Supporters are eagerly awaiting kick-off, with spirits high and people in good voice. And in those pubs with Sky Sports available, a bizarre scene is unfolding - as Norwich City fans cheer on - of all teams - Ipswich Town.
The Tractor Boys face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in a 5.15pm kick-off and City fans know that should Town grab either a point or an unlikely win, victory for Norwich will guarantee the Championship trophy comes back to Norfolk.
