Most Read

6 Sebastien Bassong: Lunging attempted challenge to concede QPR's penalty. Could have made amends with a far post header.

6 Javier Garrido: One or two understandably nervy moments early on. Grew into the game. Glimpses of quality service.

8 Robert Snodgrass: Architect of Norwich's goal. Numerous assists from set pieces and went close in each half to scoring.

7 Bradley Johnson: Dominant presence in the midfield. Neutralised the impact of Ji Sung Park.

7 Jonny Howson: Key man during the second half periods of control. Kept City on the front foot with intelligent switches of play.

7 Anthony Pilkington: Cool lift to pick out Simeon Jackson. Repeated the trick for Russell Martin's late header against the bar.

7 Grant Holt: Relished the physical challenge with Clint Hill. Linked front to back superbly at times.

7 Simeon Jackson: Took his chance. Poacher's instinct for the goal. Tireless shift running the channels.

Subs: Steve Morison (for Holt 87) 5, Chris Martin (for Jackson 87) 5


6 Robert Green: Denied Robert Snodgrass superbly. Fortunate to escape when he appeared to handle outside his penalty area.

6 Fabio Da Silva: Improved after testing opening spell against Anthony Pilkington.

5 Clint Hill: Mark Hughes saved him from an early bath.

6 Anton Ferdinand: Much more aggressive in his battles with Grant Holt after the interval.

5 Armand Traore: Needed reinforcements to try and keep Snodgrass in check. Too often isolated down City's most productive flank.

5 Samba Diakite: Peripheral figure. Unable to try and stem Norwich centrally.

6 Jamie Mackie: Tried to bully Javier Garrido early on. Little impact as the game elapsed.

6 Ji Sung Park: Quiet shift by his high standards.

6 Junior Hoilett: City did their homework. Double-teamed him whenever he cut inside. One or two flashes of intent.

7 Bobby Zamora: Looked in the mood. Cunning intent for QPR's equaliser. Intelligent movement dropping deep.

6 Djibril Cisse: Flatters to decieve. Has all the tools to be a nightmare for defenders. Sporadic threat

Subs: Nedum Onuoha (for Hill 45) 6, Jose Bosingwa (for Traore 71) 5, Shaun Derry (for Diakite 86) 5
