Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 1-0 win at Griffin Park.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops after another stout display on the road.

• Angus Gunn

Secure under the high ball. Fine stop in the 86th minute from Ollie Watkins. 7.5

• Grant Hanley

Turning into a fine signing. Aerially so dominant and knits the back three together. 8.0

• Christoph Zimmermann

Soaring confidence typified by an adventurous burst into enemy territory. 7.0

• Timm Klose

Brave block late on to throw himself in the line of sight in a frantic final quarter. 7.0

• Harrison Reed

No higher compliment than to say Ivo Pinto was not missed. Aggressive in his defending. Assured in possession. Reed can operate in that wing back role. 7.0

• Alex Tettey

Covered acres at times with the speed Brentford moved the ball. Perhaps needed more defensive support in central midfield. 7.0

• Mario Vrancic

Caught in possession on a couple of occasions but with no consequences. 6.5

• Jamal Lewis

Another first half booking meant he had to curb his aggressive pressing instincts. Up against two decent operators down his flank. 6.5

• James Maddison

Touch, awareness and execution. Speed of thought and deed for another match-winning intervention. Excellence as standard. 8.0

• Nelson Oliveira

Coat of paint from a much-needed goal. Plenty of effort. But shielding the ball up against combative centre halves is simply not his game. Too often it came back the other way. 6.0

• Josh Murphy

Lack of composure in a series of promising counter-attacking situations. 6.0

City substitutes

• Moritz Leitner n/a

(for Josh Murphy, 78)

• Marley Watkins n/a

(for Nelson Oliveira, 82)

• Tom Trybull n/a

(for Mario Vrancic, 90)
