Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 3-1 Championship win against Millwall.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who met fire with fire at Millwall and left south London top of the Championship.

• Tim Krul

Wonderful double save at his near post from Tom Elliott and Steve Morison to ensure no tense finale. 8

• Max Aarons

One whipped deep cross almost nestled inside the far post early in the second half. Another gorgeous centre later on should have been slotted by Marco Stiepermann. 7

• Christoph Zimmermann

Fantastic leap and header to put Norwich back in front. Followed by his bread and butter with a vital clearance inside his own six yard box. 9

• Ben Godfrey

Massive early goalline block to keep his side level. Withstood the aerial bombardment. 8

• Jamal Lewis

Attacking adventure sparked the move that led to the opening Norwich goal. 7

• Tom Trybull

One costly lapse when he allowed Morison to get in front of him for the flicked assist that drew Millwall level. But demanded the ball under difficult circumstances with Millwall’s high intensity press. 7

• Kenny McLean

Kept it simple. Plenty of endeavour, plenty of short passes. One speculative shot at Jordan Archer. 7

• Emi Buendia

Two assists - the second a sublime pass - and a key role in the first City goal as well. But his sloppy late first half pass was cut out in a phase of play that eventually brought Millwall level. 9

• Marco Stiepermann

Composed finish on the half volley helped check Millwall’s early surge. Got his angles wrong in the second half when he miscued a close range header. 8

• Onel Hernandez

Dart into the box and angled shot parried by Archer, before Stiepermann slotted the rebound. Won the ball back to spark the third Canaries’ goal. 7

• Teemu Pukki

Needed to get his sighter in from Buendia’s sharp first half pass when he sidefooted tamely at Archer. No mistake to seal the win when Buendia set him free again. The Finn’s majestic first touch was matched by a cool take. 24 and counting in the league 8
