Which Norwich City player performed the best in the 2-1 Championship defeat against Rotherham? Let us know by casting your vote in the poll on this page.

Another red card, another tantalising comeback undone by more defensive woe. A familiar tale played out at the grandly-name New York stadium.

Paul Warne, Tom Adeyemi and their nearest and dearest were the only people with a Norfolk connection who could possibly derive any pleasure from Norwich City's latest misfortune. Nelson Oliveira swiftly turned from goalscoring hero to red card villain. The 10 left on the park and the reinforcements who were later introduced toiled for 65 minutes or so to bridge the numerical disadvantage.

Alex Tettey had to carry a heavier workload once Jonny Howson departed through injury. Cameron Jerome's stooping header drew Norwich level for all of four minutes until a cheap turnover down their right ended with Adeyemi soaring above Steven Whittaker at the far post.

John Ruddy made some timely stops once the Millers went back in front, to give the Canaries some hope of a second equaliser. Russell Martin headed a goalbound header off his own line. Ivo Pinto was a prominent figure down the left and Wes Hoolahan looked the most likely to orchestrate a more favourable outcome. Alex Pritchard's quality on two late set pieces could have brought City some tangible reward.

Our Norwich City correspondent, Paddy Davitt, went for Hoolahan, who prodded and probed with a number of teasing passes. The inswinging cross for Jerome's equaliser was inch-perfect.

The result as of 10:30pm on Sunday will be published in Monday's Pink Un alongside Paddy's choice.
