Ipswich Town host rivals Norwich City in the first East Anglian derby of the season this Sunday lunchtime (12pm ko) and you can watch back what Blues boss Mick McCarthy had to say in his pre-match press conference earlier today.

The Blues boss spoke to the media at the club’s training base of Playford Road and, as always, the footage was shown live right here.

Will Joe Garner and Tom Adeyemi be fit to face the Canaries and what has McCarthy made of Norwich striker Nelson Oliveira’s claim that City are a ‘better club’ with ‘better players’?

Does McCarthy intend to go on the attack as the Blues seek their first derby win since 2009? What has he made of the new-look Norwich under German boss Daniel Farke? And, with Norwich unbeaten in eight and Town having lost five of their last seven in the league, does form really go out of the window – as the cliche goes – on derby day?
