On this day: Dozzell double seals derby win

In our series looking at Premier League history, Ipswich claim win over rivals at Portman Road

Ipswich's Jason Dozzell scored two goals to give his side a memorable derby win rifles through the annals of the Barclays Premier League to find significant events.

On this day: 19 April 1993 Ipswich 3-1 Norwich City

The East Anglian derby is always a keenly fought affair but in 1992/93, with one team in the top three and the other in a relegation battle, the match had even more riding on it than usual.

Under the guidance of manager Mike Walker, Norwich City were third in the inaugural Barclays Premier League table but needed victory over their rivals to retain any hope of overhauling leaders Manchester United and Aston Villa.

Ipswich Town, meanwhile, were in 17th place of the 22-team division and six points off the relegation zone with three matches left to play.

It was the home side who took the lead, midfielder Jason Dozzell scoring after 21 minutes only for Canaries striker Chris Sutton to equalise just before the break.

However, Ipswich sealed the three points which practically guaranteed their Premier League status with two goals in three second-half minutes from Mick Stockwell and a second from Dozzell.

Norwich bounced back from the defeat to overcome Liverpool and then draw with relegated Middlesbrough to secure third place, two points behind second-placed Villa.
