Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ Carrow Road defeat

Norwich City fans have been voting since the final whistle and here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops after a first league defeat in nine against the Rams

• Angus Gunn

Acrobatic tip over to deny Tom Huddlestone. Absolutely no luck when his near post parry from Bradley Johnson’s ferocious strike flew to Sam Winnall to seal the points. 7.0

• Ivo Pinto

Buccaneering. Led the fight first half, especially, with numerous bursts that injected some energy into the game and the home fans. 8.0

You may also want to watch:

• Timm Klose

Composed finish to draw City level. But questions defensively to leave Winnall unattended six yards out. 7.0

Most Read

• Christoph Zimmermann

Costly mis-judgement trying to cut out the pass to David Nugent for the opening goal. 6.5

• Marco Stiepermann

Coat of paint from the breakthrough goal. But should have given Scott Carson no chance with that far post poke in the second period. Assist for Timm Klose’s leveller. 7.0

• Harrison Reed

Growing understanding alongside Tom Trybull. Made way on the hour mark as City had to chase the game. 6.5

• Tom Trybull

Quality range of passing. First touch sublime, positional awareness and game intelligence. 7.5

• Wes Hoolahan

Rare lack of precision with the ball at his feet from the Irishman. Largely on the periphery. 6.5

• James Maddison

No end product on this occasion. Which just underlines how good he has been of late and how vital he is to this side going forward. 7.0

• Josh Murphy

Honest or naive? You decide on the key first half incident with Carson. Tested the Rams’ stopper from 20 yards and set up Stiepermann for the chance that should have been taken. 7.0

• Cameron Jerome

Work-rate top drawer as always. But with the on-going fitness concerns around Nelson Oliveira, City need more goals. Tested Carson from outside the box. 7.0

City substitutes

• Yanic Wildschut

Started to make things happen with his direct thrust when the game was threatening to meander. 7.0

(for Josh Murphy, 62)

• Nelson Oliveira

Signalled to the bench he could not continue after 10 minutes with a calf problem. n/a

(for Harrison Reed, 62)

• Marley Watkins

May find himself called upon now down the middle with Oliveira struggling and Jerome working over-time. 6.5

(for Nelson Oliveira, 73)
