Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' latest win at Carrow Road

City fans have been voting since the final whistle and this is Paddy's verdict on Alex Neil's troops.

• Michael McGovern

One rush of blood to race out of his area in the second half but again largely a watching brief. 6.5

You may also want to watch:

• Ivo Pinto

Joyous celebrations for a landmark career goal underlined how popular and how important the defender is with his attacking instincts. 8.0

Most Read

• Russell Martin

Bizarre verbal spat with one of the Burton assistants in the seccond half. May feel could have done better for Albion's equaliser. 7.0

• Timm Klose

Another sore head beckons no doubt after numerous aerial clearances. Very good in the second period defending set pieces when Burton fancied it. 7.0

• Martin Olsson

Showed plenty of composure to rifle Norwich in front. Should have had a second after the break when he missed from six yards out. 7.5

• Graham Dorrans

On the ball in and around the opposition box there are few better at this level. Demonstrated by the threaded pass for Martin Olsson's goal. 7.5

• Jonny Howson

Calming influence in those congested central areas. But beaten in the air at the far post for Albion's equaliser. 7.0

• Jacob Murphy

Continues to leave his mark at this level with another goal. Timely coming so soon after Burton's leveller, albeit it brushed John Mousinho on its way. 7.5

• Wes Hoolahan

Once Norwich got themselves in front the Irishman's influence grew. Some clever play in confined spaces. 7.5

• Robbie Brady

Penalty saved in the second period. His manager opted to praise the Burton keeper in that duel but indicative of a talent still trying to get back to his best level this season. 6.5

• Cameron Jerome

Prodigious work rate. But should have notched at least once. Particularly second half chance struck at the diving Jon McLaughlin. 7.0

City substitutes

• Louis Thompson n/a

(for Wes Hoolahan, 83)

• Josh Murphy n/a

(for Jacob Murphy, 84)

• Nelson Oliveira n/a

(for Cameron Jerome, 84)
