Poll: Our Norwich City Man of the Match against Reading was Kei Kamara, who was yours?

Kei Kamara's nomination is a testament to the collective efforts of Norwich City to sweep Reading aside.

On a day that felt so much bigger than the mere award of three Premier League points, any number of Chris Hughton's personnel on duty could argue for top billing. Grant Holt looked like the frontman who has terrorised defences across the land with a wrecking ball performance, underlined by key support roles for both Norwich goals.

Ryan Bennett turned in a masterful outing after being press-ganged into service following the early injury blow of losing the talismanic Michael Turner; not just in his first goal for the club but an assured shift alongside Sebastien Bassong when Reading threatened.

Elliott Bennett carried on where he had left off against Swansea with a goal to reward his efforts. Jonny Howson deserved a mention in despatches for a prodgious shift in midfield, but it was the marauding Kamara who featured prominently from kick-off when he teed up Elliott Bennett to rifle over.

The Sporting Kansas loanee was routinely denied in a personal grudge match with Alex McCarthy, who beat away his volley in first half stoppage time and then clawed out a rising hit that led to the corner which brought the breakthrough. McCarthy denied him again before the hour mark after one of those athletically balletic close range headers that appear his stock-in-trade. Kamara's shift typified Norwich's urgency and dynamism..
