Norwich's East Anglian derby clashes against Ipswich have been moved to Sunday kick-offs.

City were due to make the trip down the A140 on November 18, with their arch-rivals coming the other way on April 21 - the penultimate home game of the season.

But within 24 hours of the new season's fixture list being released, Norfolk and Suffolk police forces have, as expected, requested that the games be moved to the following day - with noon kick-offs.
