The Championship play-off semi-final between Norwich City and Ipswich Town represents the biggest East Anglia derby in history – or does it?

With a date at Wembley on offer for the winner and the ultimate prize of a place in the Premier League at stake, the next two games will forever go down in derby folklore.

But how does they compare to others?

Many fans will say Norwich's Milk Cup semi-final win 30 years ago was bigger as the Canaries went on to secure the most famous day in the club's history, beating Sunderland 1-0 at the Twin Towers.

Ipswich fans will point to when the Blues helped consign Norwich to League One when a dramatic 3-2 win effectively relegated Bryan Gunn's side.
