Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ point against Hull City


Norwich City fans have been voting since the final whistle and here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops after a hard-fought comeback against the Tigers.

• Angus Gunn

Exposed by his backline for Nouha Dicko’s first half opener. Tested by Jarrod Bowen after the break. Auxiliary striker in the frenetic finale. 7.0

• Ivo Pinto

Tireless promptings down the right in the second period as City probed for a way back. 7.0


You may also want to watch:


• Timm Klose

Caught out for Hull’s rapid counter-attacking breakthrough. Could have levelled from Wes Hoolahan’s exquisite pass. 7.0

Most Read

• Christoph Zimmermann

Failed to sense danger for Dicko’s cool finish. Forlorn attempt to appeal for offside as the last man. Stood his ground thereafter when the Tigers’ broke in the second half. 7.0

• James Husband

Growing more into this side with each shift. Offered width and balance. 7.0

MORE: Have your say on our Pinkun forum• Harrison Reed

Not a like-for-like replacement for the injured Alex Tettey but does offer a greater composure in possession. One lifted pass over the top for Cameron Jerome the pick. 6.5

• Tom Trybull

Quieter outing than of late. Needs to adjust to the absence of Tettey in the games ahead. Lack of pace highlighted when Hull broke. 6.5

• Mario Vrancic

Quality chip freed Yanic Wildschut who failed to beat Allan McGregor. Still concerns out of possession. 6.5

• James Maddison

Clipped a post. Denied later by McGregor and dragged an angled shot agonisingly wide. City’s brightest creative spark again. 7.5

• Yanic Wildschut

Lack of composure with only McGregor to beat. But his burst did entice David Melyer into picking up a second yellow card. Willing outlet. 7.0

• Cameron Jerome

Absolutely vital near post flick for Nelson Oliveira’s late intervention. Couple of darts in behind also triggered chances for City’s midfield. 7.0

City substitutes

• Wes Hoolahan

Pass of the match for the jink and reverse spot that teed up Timm Klose. 6.5

(for Harrison Reed, 67)

• Marco Stiepermann

Deep throw in led to City’s equaliser 6.5

(for James Husband, 74)

• Nelson Oliveira

Get him on the pitch. He’ll score goals. Simple. Cheeky back heel but it was all about the anticipation. 7.5

(for Tom Trybull, 74)
