Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries' latest no show on the road.

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

• John Ruddy

Decisive in racing from his line. Anything but in the manner of the miscued clearance that got the treatment from Ross Wallace 5.0


You may also want to watch:


• Ivo Pinto

Caught wrong side for the move that led to the Owls' second goal. Collective responsibility in a failing backline. 5.0

Most Read

• Russell Martin

Shocker. Seemed to misjudge the flight of Wallace's long range finish. Not out quick enough to stop Fernando Forestieri's cross for the second and worst of all lost his man and the flight of the ball for Morgan Fox's close range header. 4.0

• Timm Klose

Totally bereft of confidence it appears. Following on from the costly error at Burton, gave the ball away for the sequence of events that led to the first home goal and then twice afforded Jordan Rhodes too much freedom inside the penalty area. 4.0

• Mitchell Dijks

Pushed further forward in a wing back role after the break but the tide was flowing the other way. 5.0

• Jonny Howson

One shot from the edge of the penalty area spiralled away off Rhodes. Limited influence. 5.5

• Alex Tettey

Spoke on Friday about time running out for him to get back to the Premier League. Sadly prophetic. Fox's diving header appeared to go under his foot. Could have closed down Barry Bannan quicker for the fourth goal. 5.0

• Jacob Murphy

Replaced at the break with City opting for a defensive three. Well-policed in his sporadic forays into the final third. 5.0

• Wes Hoolahan

Extravagant early back heel on halfway to spring a home counter set the tone. One clever threaded pass did bring City's equaliser. 5.0

• Steven Naismith

Drew a sprawling stop from Keiren Westwood that looped into Cameron Jerome's path for Norwich's goal. That upturn in form looks a long time ago. 5.0

• Cameron Jerome

Never going to be a natural finisher at this stage of his career but in the right place to nod his 12th of the season. Miscued a later shot from the edge of the area. Biggest contribution might have been reserved for delivering some home truths in his post-match interview. 6.0

City substitutes

• Ryan Bennett 5.0

Game was long since up by his belated arrival.

(for Jacob Murphy, 45)

• Josh Murphy 5.0

Carved out a couple of probing crosses. Cut inside to drag a shot at Westwood.

(for Steven Naismith, 71)

• Alex Pritchard 5.0

One can only hope he is set for greater involvement between now and the end of the season.

(for Wes Hoolahan, 71)
