Norwich City's Nathan Redmond delighted after Derby Day victory

18 May 2015

Norwich City Nathan Redmond expressed his delight after playing an integral part in their Sky Bet Championship Play-Off progress against Ipswich Town.

Following a 1-1 draw at Portman Road a week prior, the Canaries overcame their East Anglian rivals 3-1 in the reverse fixture to seal their place in the Final.

Redmond's goal-bound effort in the second period was handled on the line by Christophe Berra, resulting in a red card for the Ipswich defender and a penalty for the hosts, coolly converted by Wes Hoolahan.

After an Ipswich equaliser, Redmond fired the hosts ahead once more and they didn't look back, with Cameron Jerome sealing the victory. And the lively winger was more than happy with his contribution against the Tractor Boys.

"I’ve always said I like assisting goals, but scoring a goal like that in a derby against Ipswich is something special.”

Redmond added: "I've played in four derbies this year, and this one was by far the best. It was a very good atmosphere, which made it a good day for the fans.

"To get to Wembley is a great achievement for the club. It's going to be a good day out, but we know we've got to give our all for one more game.

"It will be a great day, which we'll enjoy, but at the same time we’ve got a job on our hands.

"The goal at the start of the season was to get back to the Premier League. Now we have to win our next game to get there.”
