Norwich United continued their defence of the Thurlow Nunn League Challenge Cup with a 4-1 win at Ipswich Wanderers.

The hosts had taken the lead in the first half and the Planters were thankful to goalkeeper Nathan Pauling for saving a penalty before star striker Matt Blake equalised.

Adam Hipperson then fired the visitors into the lead against their Thurlow Nunn Premier Division rivals.

Tim Henery made the score 3-1 in the second half before Hipperson completed the quarter-final victory with his second of the night.

It was a sixth win on the spin for Norwich, who are also well on course to retain their league title.
