Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers says that his side are looking forward to their "battle" with rivals Norwich City on Sunday.

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers has said that his side are looking forward to their "battle" with rivals Norwich City ahead of the East Anglian derby.

The two sides face off at Portman Road at lunchtime on Sunday, with the Tractor Boys trailing their rivals by one point but with a game in hand.

Chambers's comments follow claims by Canaries striker Nelson Oliveira that Norwich are the better club, a statement refuted by the Town defender.

"They're obviously not very well educated on the fact that I think there's three stars above the Ipswich crest on our shirt," the 32-year-old said in a video posted on the club's official website.

"I'm sure there will be a few words exchanged on Sunday and it's a battle that we're definitely looking forward to."

Both of last season's meetings between the two rivals finished in a 1-1 draw.
