Football fans are being warned to check before they travel to the East Anglian Derby next weekend.

Around 1,600 Ipswich fans are expected to travel to Norwich for the Championship match on April 6 which kicks off at 12.30pm.

It will be the first time the rivals have met at Carrow Road since 2019, when the Canaries won 3-0 on their way to winning the title, continuing Town's slide to relegation.

Additional services will run before and after the match but supporters are warned to check before they travel due to industrial action being scheduled for the same day.

The additional 10.50am Ipswich to Norwich service will be the last one arriving in Norwich before kick-off as the 11.06am service from Ipswich is cancelled.

The trains are expected to be very busy immediately after the game but Greater Anglia said everything possible will be done to get fans on their way quickly.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia's area customer service manager, said: “We’ve worked closely with both football clubs and the British Transport Police and people are advised to check before they travel and travel earlier or later if they can.

“We will run as many services as we can, given the action short of a strike, with a plan that is intended to ensure everyone has a safe and smooth journey."

Police officers will also be present to signpost Ipswich supporters from coach parks and the train station to the stadium's away section via Clarence Road. 

The usual road closures will be in place around Carrow Road before and after the match and police may close additional roads for short periods depending on crowd numbers.
