As Norwich City claimed a decent EFL Championship point at promotion-chasing Derby County, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings from Pride Park.

James Maddison’s second-half penalty ensured City left with a draw from the Rams and cancelled out Matej Vydra’s well taken first-half opener.

However it could have been even better had Nelson Oliveira converted his own spot kick before half time, while Norwich created the better chances throughout the game.

Norwich have now lost just once in 10 matches across the Championship and FA Cup, and have five wins from their last eight league games – with a big one next on the horizon.

Derby were 11 games unbeaten – their last defeat coming at home to Ipswich back in November.

Norwich now switch from one Derby to another following Saturday, with arch East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town headed to Carrow Road on Sunday (12pm), before a Wednesday night visit to runaway Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers with John Ruddy and Ryan Bennett in tow (7.45pm).
