Athletic Bilbao stretched their unbeaten run to three matches in the Primera Division by edging out Eibar 1-0 on Sunday.

Carlos Gurpegi's first-half goal was all that separated the sides, although the visitors could have a hatful at the Ipurua Municipal Stadium but for a fine performance from home goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez.

The win nevertheless lifts Athletic above their opponents, who have now lost six on the trot as they continue to slide down the table.

Norwich beat Ipswich in East Anglian derby

Bradley Johnson fired another fine goal as Norwich moved just three points away from the Championship summit by claiming derby honours at Carrow Road.

Johnson and Lewis Grabban netted in a richly deserved 2-0 victory over Ipswich, a sixth successive win for Norwich as they took full advantage of the defeats suffered by top two Derby and Middlesbrough on Saturday.

They now appear well placed to make an immediate return to the top flight, with new boss Alex Neil having instigated a stunning run of form since taking over in January.

Ipswich, meanwhile, have now slipped below their local rivals in the table, and on this evidence face a tough battle to overhaul them.
