Which Norwich City player performed the best in the 2-1 Championship win at Nottingham Forest? Let us know by casting your vote in the poll on this page.

Norwich City answered any doubts over their fighting qualities with a hard-fought 2-1 win at a Nottingham Forest side gunning for a fourth consecutive home Championship win of the campaign.

That looked within reach when Apostolos Vellios cashed in on Wes Hoolahan's saved penalty, but Jonny Howson's early second-half leveller sparked a major sea change and Graham Dorrans rifled a winner that maintained the Canaries' gathering promotion push.

Dorrans was picked out for special praise by his manager, Alex Neil, afterwards in the manner he controlled the game in the second stanza, capped by his fine strike. Jacob Murphy also looked like the young man who had terrorised the Championship after the interval, with Norwich on the front foot and camped for long spells inside the Reds' half. Martin Olsson and Ivo Pinto offered an overlapping threat and Timm Klose was a calming presence when Forest upped the ante late on and looked to profit from the aerial route.

Our Norwich City correspondent, Paddy Davitt, went for Dorrans over his central midfield partner Howson, for his integral role in a comeback which looked unlikely at the interval.
