City stalwarts Grant Holt, Iwan Roberts and Darren Huckerby - all of whom have played and scored in Derbies - were among those to express their excitement as the Canaries prepare to welcome their rivals from Suffolk.

Holt, who famously helped himself to a hat-trick in 2010, assured fans he would be at the game - as well as reminding Tractor Boys of the aggregate score over the two Derbies that season.

Meanwhile Roberts, who grabbed a brace in a famous Portman Road win in 2000, predicted a home win by two goals, adding 'may the best team win as long as it's wearing yellow and green'.

Here are just some of the highlights from City heroes of years gone by.
