As Norwich City slipped to a painful defeat to EFL Championship rivals Sheffield United, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings from Carrow Road.

James Wilson’s debut goal just six minutes in plus Clayton Donaldson’s second-half counter did the damage, as Norwich lost 2-1 to their Yorkshire visitors – rendering Ivo Pinto’s header a mere consolation.

It all took place just three days after the Canaries’ 120-minute FA Cup marathon at Premier League Chelsea.

Norwich were unbeaten in four Championship matches as they prepared for the return fixture of the side they beat 1-0 back in September, in a controversial encounter.

The Blades had just one win from their last 10 league outings, drawing their latest Sheffield derby with Wednesday at Bramall Lane last time out.

Following Saturday’s game, Norwich head for Brentford next Saturday (3pm) before a Jonny Howson return to Carrow Road when Middlesbrough visit the following weekend.
