The East Anglian derby takes place in the Championship on Sunday and our tipster is backing the in-form Canaries to take all three points with ease

Sunday’s clash in the Championship sees Norwich City host Ipswich Town in the East Anglian derby which could have ramifications at both ends of the table.

The Canaries go into the weekend top of the league and are just 7/20 (1.35) with 888Sport to win their 17th game of the season, whilst the Tractor Boys are eight points adrift of safety at the bottom.

It is no surprise, then, that the bookmaker offers a huge 8/1 (9.0) on an away win and 7/2 (4.50) for the match to end all square.

Unbeaten in this fixture for almost 10 years, Norwich will be hoping for yet another victory as their quest for promotion continues and they can be backed at Evens (2.0) to win with a -1 handicap.

Goals have been no problem for Daniel Farke’s men this term, with the 57 they have scored in the Championship the second-most behind West Brom, and 31 of those have come at Carrow Road.

Sixteen of those goals have come in their last seven matches, including three in an impressive victory at Leeds United last weekend and three on Boxing Day when they came back from 3-0 down against Nottingham Forest to rescue a point.

Norwich have scored more than one goal in 10 of their 15 home matches this season, netting three times on six occasions, and will certainly fancy their chances of increasing that tally against the league’s worst defence.

Indeed, Ipswich have kept just three clean sheets all season, the fewest in the league, and each one of those came in front of their home fans.

In fact, only once have they even held an opponent to fewer than two goals away from home, which was way back on August 11 when they lost 1-0 at Rotherham United.

The Canaries should have few problems seeing off their East Anglian rivals on Sunday and extending their unbeaten run in this fixture, with 888Sport’s Evens (2.0) price for Norwich (-1) the most appealing play here.
