The unbeaten run goes on – and now you can re-live Norwich City's 1-1 derby draw at Ipswich through some of our favourite images of the Portman Road battle.

The Canaries hit back to grab a Championship point against their bitter rivals, after seeing Gwion Edwards' deflected effort fly past the wrong-footed Tim Krul in the 57th minute.

Moritz Leitner levelled the score with a fine left-footed strike from the edge of the Town penalty area in the 71st minute, finding the bottom-right corner after good play from Onel Hernandez on the left wing.

With the local bragging rights shared for the second successive game, Norwich stretched their unbeaten derby run – already the longest in the history of the fixture – to 11 matches.

Town have not tasted victory over City since April 2009 and saw arguably their best chance of reclaiming the local bragging rights since that game slip away.
