East Anglian derby date between Ipswich Town and Norwich City changes as Sky Sports cameras loom

13:50 22 December 2014

Archant

Ipswich Town’s trip to Norwich City has been moved to Sunday, March 1 (2.05pm kick-off), and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Town were originally scheduled to make the trip across East Anglia on Saturday, February 28, but will now look for revenge on the 1-0 defeat sustained at Portman Road earlier in the season a day later in front of the television cameras.

Lewis Grabban was the match-winner for Norwich against Ipswich back in August, but second-placed Town have lost just once in 18 since the narrow defeat to their arch-rivals four months ago.

  • "Narrow defeat"? From my memory it was one way traffic and 0-1 flattered Ipswich. Probably the best thing that happened to the team given the turnaround since.

  • How come NCFC have moved their midweek game because of this, but we still have to play Leeds 48 hours later?

  • There is much that is good in the modern world compared with 'the good old days' but the excessive commercialisation of football with the TV companies calling the shots is not one of them.
