INorwich moved up to second place in the npower Championship as Paul Lambert's men romped to a one-sided victory 5-1 in the East Anglia derby against Ipswich at Portman Road.
The Canaries - looking to become the first team in a decade to win successive promotions from the third to top tier of English football - took the lead through Andrew Surman on 13 minutes.
An own goal from Gareth McAuley, turning in David Fox's corner, doubled Norwich's lead before half an hour was on the clock.
Simeon Jackson made it 3-0 in the 73rd minute and although Town midfielder Jimmy Bullard crashed in a 25-yard effort, Russell Martin swept home a fourth.
Substitute Daniel Pacheco, on loan from Liverpool, made it five in stoppage time after Jackson hit the bar to move Norwich two points above Cardiff, who play at leaders QPR on Saturday.
The win completed a double for Norwich over their neighbours, following a similarly emphatic 4-1 triumph at Carrow Road earlier in the season.
