The Canaries go into the game looking to extend the longest unbeaten streak in the long history of the local rivalry, extending their domination to nine games unbeaten with a 1-0 win at Portman Road thanks to a James Maddison strike in October.

It means Ipswich still hold the overall upper hand in league fixtures, winning 38 of the 89 games since the first in September 1946, but the Canaries are catching up with 34 victories.
