Norwich 1-1 Ipswich
David Wright's equaliser gave Ipswich a point in the East Anglian derby.

Wright, who played on loan at Norwich in 2005 - reacted first to poke a loose ball home midway through the second-half to secure a deserved point.

Norwich had taken an early lead when Darren Huckerby delivered a pinpoint cross to Dickson Etuhu, who sent a glancing header beyond Shane Supple.

Ipswich were poor in the opening half, but after Wright's goal, Alan Lee then flashed a header inches wide.

  • Norwich manager Peter Grant:

  • "I thought that game summed up our season as a whole - we just can't seem to kill teams off.

    "We got an early goal and then created a lot of chances, we just couldn't put them away.

    "At 1-0 the opposition have always got a chance and so it's proved."

  • Ipswich manager Jim Magilton:

  • "Credit to the lads for the way they played in the second half.

    "We got on the ball, created chances and managed to put one away. I'm delighted for David Wright because he had been given a tough time by Darren Huckerby in the first half and came back very well.

    "Overall it was a good fight back for the team but, on the overall balance of play, I don't think we deserved to win it and I thought 1-1 was about right."
