Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' abysmal 3-0 Championship loss against Birmingham City

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

• Michael McGovern

Must have wondered what was going on from the men in front. No chance with any of the three home goals. 6.0

• Steven Whittaker

Not a shift to stake a claim for regular involvement. Failed to cut out the cross for the opener and then a clumsy slip conceded a penalty. 5.0

Most Read

• Ryan Bennett

Sporadic distribution of the ball. Little or no protection from midfield however. 5.5

• Timm Klose

Dragged out of position on numerous occasions. Alarming lack of pace to allow the break that eventually led to Robert Tesche's embarrassing miss. 5.5

• Robbie Brady

Ball-watching at the far post for Birmingham's opener. Not the first time we've seen it. 5.0

• Alex Tettey

Costly late back pass punished by Clayton Donaldson. Indicative of a lack of composure throughout. 5.0

• Jonny Howson

Second best alongside Alex Tettey in those central skirmishes. 5.5

• Sergi Canos

Plenty of endeavour and appetite but a lack of guile in the key moments. 5.5

• Jacob Murphy

The one bright spark. Looked to make things happen with his pace and directness. 7.0

• Wes Hoolahan

Saw plenty of the ball but never on the same wavelength as Steven Naismith. Needs City to dominate midfield to really exert an influence. 5.5

• Steven Naismith

Pushed further forward. Ineffective and hooked for Kyle Lafferty. 5.0

City substitutes

• Kyle Lafferty 5.5

(for Steven Naismith, 63)

• Josh Murphy 5.5

(for Sergi Canos, 63)
