Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 3-2 Championship win against Bristol City.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who hit back not once but twice to end the Robins’ seven-match winning league streak.

• Tim Krul

Vital stop from Marlon Pack during a Bristol second half surge. 7

• Max Aarons

Persistence paid off in a big way for Ben Godfrey’s finish. 8

• Christoph Zimmermann

Body on the line on numerous occasions. Key stoppage time block at his near post. 8

• Ben Godfrey

Instincts of a frontman to be alive in the penalty area to slot Max Aarons’ cut back. Will feel should have done more to halt Callum O’Dowda run. 7

• Jamal Lewis

Such an important attacking outlet in this side now. 8

• Tom Trybull

Played his part with a number of key interventions when Bristol threatened in the second half. Slipped too easily at the start of the O’Dowda burst. 7

• Kenny McLean

Quality brace but his head coach was also right to highlight his poor effort at halting O’Dowda. 8

• Emi Buendia

Wonderful crossfield pass sparked Norwich’s opening goal. 7

• Marco Stiepermann

Slammed the bar late on with a close range effort. Another mazy dribble earned a chance for Onel Hernandez. 7

• Onel Hernandez

Key role in the first home goal. But so many promising positions and the wrong decision or poorly executed finish was the final outcome. 7

• Teemu Pukki

Rare lack of composure for first half chance. But cushioned assist for Kenny McLean. 7

City substitutes

• Jordan Rhodes n/a

(for Teemu Pukki, 85)

• Mario Vrancic n/a

(for Emi Buendia, 89)

• Timm Klose n/a

(for Onel Hernandez, 90+4)
