The fans have spoken, and in our Pink Un poll have voted in their favourite Norwich City derby day team.
1 Kevin Keelan
One of the most flamboyant City players of all time, but don't let anyone tell you he wasn't highly skilled as well – you don't make a record 673 unless you're good. His testimonial match in 1974 was actually against Ipswich.
2 Ian Culverhouse
One of the finest full-backs to wear the yellow and green. Was part of Paul Lambert's management team when City demolished Ipswich 4-1 at home and 5-1 away as they earned promotion to the Premier League in 2010-11.

3 Adam Drury
Drury's consistent performances and complete commitment were highly valued. Was part of that fabulous 2003-04 side which won at Portman Road just before Christmas on the way to promotion.
4 Malky Mackay
Anyone who scores against the old enemy automatically qualifies for a place in the history books. Mackay's time came in March, 2004, when he netted in the 50th and 59th minutes as City won 3-1 at Carrow Road
5 Steve Bruce
Famously scored the winner against Ipswich in the semi-finals of the League Cup in 1985, his header from a Mark Barham corner sending the home crowd delirious.
6 Ian Crook
Passing ability and his accuracy with free-kicks won't be forgotten by those who watched him in action. However, 'Chippy' isn't best liked down Suffolk way given he once 'signed' for them, then did a U-turn and returned to Carrow Road.
7 Darren Eadie
A genuine speed merchant, Eadie's feet could charm a ball out of a tree. In September, 1997, at Carrow Road, it took Eadie just eight minutes to score in the derby, as City went on to win 2-1.
8 Martin Peters
Peters was supposedly nearing the end of his career when he arrived at City in 1975, but he played more than 200 games. Deft of touch, quick of brain, Peters was good with both feet, good in the air and adept at losing his marker.
9 Grant Holt
Scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 home demolition in November 2010 and was an integral figure in the reverse fixture, which ended 5-1 in City's favour. Holt had a great temperament, great leadership skills and, like the best derby players, got a real kick when beating the old enemy.
10 Iwan Roberts
Gave ex-Ipswich player Bryan Hamilton a perfect start when he scored both goals in a 2-0 win at Portman Road in the Irishman's first game as manager of the Canaries – not that the pair really ever hit it off. That was in March, 2000.
11 Darren Huckerby
The pride of Anglia and the scourge of Suffolk. Scored the third in a 3-1 home win in March, 2004; scored the only goal at Portman Road the following season; sent off in the home game in November, 2007. Perhaps most endearing feature was how Huckerby was as passionate about the derbies as any fan.
