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.
