Norwich City's squad have failed to crack the top 10 Championship players-of-the-season, in the award won by Middlesbrough's on-loan Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford.

The highly-rated forward beat off competition from Ipswich's Daryl Murphy and Watford hitman Troy Deeney to lift the prize at Sunday's Football League annual awards bash in London, but the full top 10 was revealed on Thursday afternoon - with no City representation.

The likes of 19-goal top scorer Cameron Jerome and influential midfielder Bradley Johnson failed to make the top 10 in a list dominated by players from promotion rivals Bournemouth and Middlesbrough.

Former Norwich City striker Chris Martin does make the list after returning from a two-month injury lay-off to bolster the Rams' promotion push.

Each manager ranked their top five Championship players in order, with the cumulative scores providing the shortlist and overall winner.
