Which Norwich City player performed the best in the 2-0 Championship win against Birmingham? Let us know by casting your vote in the poll on this page.

Norwich City maintained their impressive Championship home form at Carrow Road but it was another victory that again involved some moments of alarm against a Birmingham team who have now failed to register a win in eight games for new boss Gianfranco Zola.

Both sides lacked a genuine cutting edge in front of goal, with the Blues hitting the woodwork twice, and Norwich frustrated in attempts to punish the visitors more heavily.

Lukas Jutkiewicz struck the bar with an early header, only for Cameron Jerome to burst from half-way and turn back inside the final defender to calmly slot past Tomasz Kuszczak. Jerome was denied by the experienced keeper in the second-half at the far post but the former Birmingham frontman's all-action endeavour drew high praise from Alex Neil after the game.

Steven Naismith should have added to his growing tally with a glaring miss, when he headed at Kuszczak from six yards, and a number of other strikes off-target. Jonny Howson and Alex Tettey covered plenty of ground with the visitors dictating possession for long spells, but Timm Klose and Russell Martin recovered their composure after some early unccertainty.

Klose also proved his aerial threat with a close range finish from Robbie Brady's pinpoint free kick. The Republic of Ireland international later served up Naismith's best headed chance in what might be a farewell display ahead of next week's transfer window finale.

Our Norwich City correspondent, Paddy Davitt, went for Jerome, who settled those home nerves and was a willing outlet on the counter.
