As Norwich City’s winless run in the EFL Championship continues, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings following the Canaries’ 1-1 draw with Alex Neil’s Preston North End at Carrow Road.

City were held by PNE despite James Maddison’s latest stunning free-kick giving the Canaries a half-time lead.

In the end a poacher’s finish from Tom Barkhuizen brought the visitors level in the second half, and ensured Neil’s side left his former club with the minimum they deserved.

City are now without a win in the Championship since claiming their latest East Anglian derby success towards the end of October.
