Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' battling win at Molineux.

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

• Michael McGovern

Massive moment when he denied Nouha Dicko with City coming under pressure from a resurgent home side. 7.0


You may also want to watch:


• Ivo Pinto

Attacking outlet again. Another demonstration he has adapted to the physical demands of the English game. But still suspect aerially defending his back post, underlined by the late Wolves concession. 7.0

Most Read

• Russell Martin

Used all his experience to recover from that harrowing shift at St James' Park. Confident in possession and assured alongside Timm Klose. 7.0

• Timm Klose

Leader, talisman, defensive lynchpin. Badly missed at Newcastle and a vital aerial presence when Wolves launched late bombardments. 8.0

• Martin Olsson

Great engine in the second-half with any number of overlapping bursts. But Wolves' equaliser came from a cross down his flank. 7.0

• Graham Dorrans

Norwich's control in the first-half, especially, unsurprisingly stemmed from the Scot's pervasive presence in possession. 7.0

• Alex Tettey

Much more aggressive in his pressing than on Tyneside. Cheap yellow card in the second-half but his combative traits are a vital counterpoint to the craftsmen. 7.0

• Jacob Murphy

Should have added to his growing goal tally in the first-half when his angled close range shot clipped Carl Ikeme's trailing leg. 6.5

• Wes Hoolahan

Labelled 'magic' by Alex Neil afterwards. No argument as he weaved his spell with an assist for the first goal, involvement in the second and a superb appetite to win the ball back. 7.5

• Robbie Brady

Winning goal was pure quality. Instinctive 25-yard strike swept into the top corner. That was Brady at his very best and Norwich will hope for more now. 7.5

• Cameron Jerome

Fifth goal of the season set the tone. Bullied Wolves' young centre-backs and completed another impressive shift with the assist for Brady's winner. 8.0

City substitutes

• Jonny Howson 6.5

(for Jacob Murphy, 69)

• Nelson Oliveira n/a

(for Wes Hoolahan, 83)

• Ryan Bennett n/a

(for Cameron Jerome, 90+6)
