Anything less than a win would have meant Ipswich lost their 17-year spot in the Championship, but after a goal from Lukas Jutkiewicz after just seven minutes, not even an equaliser could save the Suffolk side.

Norwich City fans took to social media to celebrate, as they prepare for tomorrow's televised game at relegation threatened Wigan (midday), and have seen Sheffield United slip up again.
