Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 2-0 loss

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, after a second home league defeat in four days against Wolves

• Angus Gunn

Best moment arguably an early tip over to deny Ruben Neves. No chance with Willy Boly’s close range header and beaten by the sheer power of Leo Bonatini’s half-volley. 6.5

• Ivo Pinto

You may also want to watch:

Spilt blood for the cause. Literally, with a brave goal-saving block to deny Jota in the seccond period. 6.5

• Timm Klose

Most Read

Miscued a far post headed chance before the break. Indecisive clearance got the treatment for match-clinching goal. 6.0

• Grant Hanley

Pressed into a full debut with Christoph Zimmermann reporting unwell on game day. Collective questions over how Boly was left unmarked. Fine block to thwart Bright Enobakhare. 6.0

• James Husband

Up against some real speed merchants but too placid in his defensive outlook. 5.0

• Harrison Reed

Second best in central areas. 6.0

• Tom Trybull

Looked weary. Dispossessed more than once and his lack of pace obvious on the counter. 5.0

• Mario Vrancic

Too slow on the ball. Need a lot more from him, with and without the ball. 5.0

• James Maddison

Picked out Marley Watkins with a penetrative free kick. Brave on the ball and progressive. Shining light. 7.0

• Josh Murphy

Plenty of effort. Precious little quality. Decision-making poor and no real understanding with his full-back. 5.0

• Marley Watkins

Two headers as good as it got. As his head coach said pre-match, still working his way back to fitness after a long period of inactivity. 6.0

City substitutes

• Marco Stiepermann

Seemed a strange decision to dip him out after his effective outing against Derby. 6.0

(for James Husband, 60)

• Cameron Jerome

Won a couple of free kicks but limited influence. 6.0

(for Josh Murphy, 60)

• Christoph Zimmermann

Deployed in a defensive three. Interesting dilemma now for Daniel Farke whether he adopts that as his base formation or continues to perm two from three frontline central defensive options. 6.0

(for Tom Trybull, 65)
