Academy boss Ricky Martin is expected to send out a young Canaries side - although the final line-up will depend very much on last night's first team match at Preston.
“It depends on the starting line-up and which of the subs played and for how long,” said Martin, whose team were 3-1 winners at MK Dons last week.

“The game will, as always, be competitive,” added Martin. “Our boys will have grown up playing against many of the Ipswich lads over the years so there will be memories of victories and defeats that have developed.

“It's a good opportunity for fans to see some of those younger players and for the players themselves to experience a derby crowd at Carrow Road.”

Team (likely): Arnold, Cave-Brown, Quaye, O'Toole, Miller, Bexfield, Lathrope, Smart, Renton, Muddell. Subs: Eames, Yong, McLean, Daley, Byrne.
