Honours even as Ipswich hold Norwich to draw

Ipswich put a huge dent in Norwich City's play-off hopes with a hard fought draw at Carrow Road.

Mick McCarthy has never managed a derby win, but it looked like that might change after Jonas Knudsen headed his side into the lead.

That lead didn't last long though Jacob Murphy beating Bartosz Bialkowski at his near post to level things up.

Both sides will feel they should have have won the game. The referee failed to spot a solid penalty claim by David McGoldrick with just 8 minutes on the clock.

City had a goal by Mitchell Dijks chalked off for handball.

Before the game Mick McCarthy said he'd have been happy with a point - perhaps even more now that may have ended Norwich's hopes for a play-off spot - they sit six points off the top six.
