Here are the national newspapers' views on Norwich City's goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road.

•The Sunday Times: 'Norwich, meanwhile, obscured their failure to buy the top-level striker they so desperately require by scoring four at Blackburn last week. This week, they were undone by their lack of fire power.'

•Sunday Mirror: 'For a team relegated from the Premier League, it is important that the players show the willingness to bounce back at the first attempt. So far, the signs are looking good.'

•Sunday Express: 'It was a frustrating day for Norwich fans as they endured a goalless stalemate and also saw goalkeeper John Ruddy go off injured.'

•Daily Mail: 'But Norwich finally found some impetus as the match entered its final 10 minutes, with some desperate defending required as first Hoolahan and then Brady caused havoc with raids down the left.'
