There were despondent reactions from Norwich City fans at Carrow Road and on social media this afternoon, after a disappointing draw with arch rivals Ipswich Town.

Jacob Murphy's 69th-minute strike earned the home side a point, after Jonas Knudsen had put the visitors ahead, as the East Anglian Derby ended in a frustrating stalemate.

The result has left some City fans fearing for the club's promotion hopes, with the Canaries left sitting six points adrift of the play-offs.

Luke Fisher, 28 of Sprowston said: 'It definitely felt like a wasted opportunity, particularly given the weekend's results.

'We've been playing really well at home recently, so this feels like two points dropped. I thought we looked happy with the point towards the end and Alex Neil could have changed things more to go for the win, instead of settling for a draw.'

Eddie Allison, 42, said: 'Sadly, it is looking like we will be playing Ipswich again next season.

'We created plenty of chances, but unfortunately just didn't take them, which was very disappointing.'
