Cameron Jerome Relishing The Challenge Of Ipswich Game

Norwich striker Cameron Jerome says he and his team-mates are relishing the pressure ahead of Sunday's derby at Ipswich.

The Canaries go to their local rivals for a noon showdown on Sunday and Jerome knows it's a huge occasion.

City were victorious the last time the East Anglian duo met - winning 4-2 on aggregate in the 2015 play-off semi-final ties - and Jerome is looking forward to renewing the rivalry, saying pressure is something that goes hand in hand with a derby game.

He told reporters: "Everyone is talking about the match and that's the kind of pressure you want as a player. It's intense and I'm sure it will be a daunting task for us to go there on Sunday and get a result. Personally, I thrive under that pressure because I find it exciting.

"All the ingredients are there for it to be a good game. We've had the upper-hand in the last few years so hopefully we can continue that." He added: "We'll look to be aggressive and take our game to them. Anything can happen in a game like this, so we've got to be prepared."
