James Maddison netted the winner as Norwich beat arch-rivals Ipswich 1-0 in the East Anglian derby at Portman Road.

Maddison's fine curled effort in the 59th minute ensured bragging rights for the Canaries, who remain unbeaten in derby matches since 2009.

The hosts were left to rue missed chances in the first half, after Jonas Knudsen hit the woodwork in the opening five minutes and David McGoldrick headed over from close range.

But it was an assured performance from the visitors in manager Daniel Farke's first East Anglian derby and the win moved Norwich into the Sky Bet Championship play-off places.

Norwich must freshen up relegated squad - Alex Neil

Norwich need to change up an aging squad, says Alex Neil Credit: PA

Norwich City manager Alex Neil has hinted there are likely to be significant changes to the squad before they start again in the Championship in August.

The Canaries were relegated from the Premier League after finishing in 19th place, five points from safety as they ended the campaign with five defeats in their last six games.

Neil is likely to remain and oversee an attempt to get back into the top flight at the first attempt, but wants to make significant changes to his squad and seemingly wishes to jettison some of the established names at his disposal.

I think we've got lots of decisions to make.

There's going to be lots of discussions happening over the next few days and then obviously we'll see who's coming with us next season.

There's a number of players been here for a number of years. We've got a team that's getting older so it's just whether we deem we need to freshen it up, how much we need to freshen it up, and if we've got resources available to us.
