Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' impressive 4-1 opening-day Championship win at Blackburn

City fans have been voting since the final whistle and this is Paddy's verdict on Alex Neil's troops.

• John Ruddy

Quiet shift for the big man. Spilled a late free kick. 6.0

• Ivo Pinto

Assist for the second goal. Beaten in the air for Rovers' reply. 6.5

Most Read

• Ryan Bennett

More than happy to get the ball down and get City playing. 6.5

• Timm Klose

Brief skirmish with Danny Graham. Will get tougher days. 6.5

• Martin Olsson

Forced to depart early with a hamstring problem. 6.0

• Jonny Howson

A day to let others grab top billing. Solid, reliable. 7.0

• Alex Tettey

Combative when required. But City completely in control. 7.0

• Jacob Murphy

First league start, first league goal. Sublime finish. Potent threat. 8.5

• Steven Naismith

Scored, involved in the third goal. Influential. 8.0

• Wes Hoolahan

Scored again, set-up Steven Naismith. Little more to be said. 8.0

Slotted from a tight angle. Harried Rovers' backline. 7.5
