Norwich City v Wigan Athletic: Player ratings

Player ratings for both Norwich City and Wigan Athletic following their Premier League clash.

• Norwich City

8 John Ruddy: String of excellent stops either side of the interval. Maturing into a top drawer keeper.

6 Kyle Naughton: Mobility came in handy to track Victor Moses. Picked off once or twice in the closing stages down his flank.

6 Elliott Ward: Hugo Rodallega's movement along the front line caused problems. Went close with a thumping late header.

6 Zak Whitbread: Not as dominant as recent weeks with the threat from Wigan much more fluid.

Most Read

6 Adam Drury: Superb anticipation and awareness for Norwich's goal.

6 David Fox: Outnumbered for long spells with Wigan's central three plus Victor Moses and Shaun Maloney dropping deeper.

6 Andrew Crofts: Looked in the mood early on to unsettle Wigan's patient passing rhythm.

6 Andrew Surman: Not a game he will remember with any great fondness.

7 Wes Hoolahan: Quality finish for the opener. Looked bright and inventive but struggled like the rest of Norwich's midfield for parity.

7 Simeon Jackson: Tireless shift from the Canadian. An assist for the goal and stretched Wigan at will.

6 Grant Holt: One trademark header flew wide after the interval. Not at his marauding best.

Subs: Steve Morison (for Holt) 7, Elliott Bennett (for Crofts) 6, Anthony Pilkington (for Surman) 6

• Wigan Athletic

7 Ali Al Habsi: Much quieter than his opposite number. No less effective when called into action.

5 Antolin Alcaraz: Slipped too many times during Norwich's best spells. Shaky.

6 Gary Caldwell: Sluggish reaction allowed Wes Hoolahan the decisive touch for Norwich's opener.

6 Maynor Figuera: Big, physical presence at the back for the Latics. Playing a three restricts his attacking instincts.

7 Emmerson Boyce: Showed plenty of appetite to get forward. Prominent during the first half especially.

6 Jean Beausejour: Linked well with Shaun Maloney late on but less effective than Emmerson Boyce on opposite flank.

6 James McCarthy: The Republic of Ireland international may feel he should have levelled straight after the restart.

7 Jordi Gomez: Brings a touch of class to the Wigan midfield. The source of numerous openings for the Latics.

6 James McArthur: Plenty of energy from the youngster. Good foil for Jordi Gomez.

7 Victor Moses: Moses has been a major threat against the Canaries both home and away this season. Quality finish.

7 Hugo Rodallega: Constant threat in a difficult lone front running role. Wasteful when lifted over from close range, first half.

Subs: Shaun Maloney (for Gomez) 6, Mohamed Diame (for McCarthy) 6
