Norwich City sealed their place in the Carabao Cup fourth round draw with a 3-1 win at Brentford – and here’s your chance to rate the performances of the Canaries players during that success.

Mario Vrancic’s first goals since his summer move from Germany made sure of safe passage. The Bosnia & Herzegovina international midfielder’s double set the visitors on their way, to go in to the hat for tomorrow night’s draw for the last 16.

City took the lead in just the 10th minute at Griffin Park last night when Vrancic rolled home a cool penalty. The Bees had a golden opportunity to equalise 10 minutes later when Wes Hoolahan brought down Florian Jozefzoon, however Yoann Barbet blasted the spot-kick over the crossbar.

The hosts, with seven changes from the team which drew with Reading, were made to regret their miss early in the second half when Hoolahan was chopped down on the edge of the area and Vrancic curled home a free-kick from 25 yards.

Josh Murphy then made sure of progress in the 68th minute, after being played clean through by Tom Trybull, before Josh Clarke pulled back a late consolation for the hosts.
