Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 0-0 draw at Carrow Road.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who paid for a lack of ruthlessness in a one-sided first half.

• Angus Gunn

Another clean sheet for the collection. Certainly one of his more routine this season. 7.0

• Harrison Reed

Licence to get forward. Good appetite for work 7.0

• Christoph Zimmermann

Decision-making, bar one miscued clearance, impressive. Dominant in the one-v-one duels with Adam Le Fondre when Bolton countered. 7.5

• Grant Hanley

Just got slightly ahead of James Maddison’s early free kick with a glancing flick. Assumed responsibillity as the senior partner in Timm Klose’s absence. 7.5

• Jamal Lewis

Certainly doesn’t shirk the physical aspect of his job. Collecting one too many yellow cards at present. 7.0

• Alex Tettey

More onus on his screening work in a tweaked formation. One or two wayward passes. 6.5

• Onel Hernandez

Plenty of endeavour. Never neglected his defensive work. Faded along with his team mates after the interval. 6.5

• Moritz Leitner

Spurned a glorious chance. The upright took the full force of his fury in the immediate aftermath. 6.5

• James Maddison

Slammed a shot against a post. Tested Ben Alnwick with another first half dig and again the instigator-in-chief. 7.5

• Josh Murphy

Heavy first touch invited David Wheater to make a last-ditch tackle, after bursting onto Nelson Oliveira’s pass. 6.5

• Nelson Oliveira

Carried on in the same vein from a late salvo at Wolves. Goalbound shot superbly parried by Alnwick. Should have had not one but two assists after exquisite passes for Josh Murphy and Moritz Leitner, 7.5

City substitutes

• Dennis Srbeny n/a

One scuffed shot at Alnwick.

(for Onel Hernandez, 77)

• Wes Hoolahan n/a

(for Alex Tettey, 80)
