NORWICH CITY 0 IPSWICH TOWN 2

TEENAGE substitute Dean Bowditch made a stunning start in League football when he kick-started Ipswich's derby victory at Carrow Road.

The 16-year-old came off the bench after 71 minutes – and just a minute later provided the cross for Fabian Wilnis to put Town ahead.

The goal sparked a grandstand finish as the Canaries pressed forward. But it was the Suffolk side who had the last laugh when Darren Bent struck with a last-minute goal to confirm the victory.

The three points keep Ipswich in the dogfight to claim a play-off place, and put them just one point behind their Norfolk rivals.
