Our Norwich City correspondent Paddy Davitt has posted his marks following the Canaries’ 2-0 defeat at Carrow Road.

Here is Paddy’s verdict on Daniel Farke’s troops, who paid for a lack of ruthlessness not for the first time this season.

• Angus Gunn

Left a near post gap and got embarrassed by Kenneth Zohore. All the more galling after a fine reaction stop from the striker’s initial header. 6.0

• Harrison Reed

Superb first half tackle inside his own six yard box. Forced off late on but another afternoon dripping in tireless endeavour 7.5

• Grant Hanley

Met his match aerially in Sean Morrison. 6.5

• Timm Klose

Let-off when Zohore poked a close range shot into the side netting. 6.5

• Jamal Lewis

More evidence the youngster is developing a progressive edge to his game, with numerous forays into the Cardiff half. 7.0

• Moritz Leitner

Quickly-taken corner almost rewarded. Useful miles on the clock after his injury layoff. 7.0

• Alex Tettey

Just one blemish with a poor header lashed home by Junior Hoilett. Spoiled a composed shift. 6.5

• Mario Vrancic

On his heels for a big first half chance, when Dennis Srbeny hit the post. One or two quality picks in possession. 6.5

• James Maddison

Frustration was all too evident after a clever one-two opened up the goal but bent his shot over the top. 6.5

• Dennis Srbeny

Clipped a post and later denied from close range by Morrison block. 6.5

• Josh Murphy

Came in for some rough treatment at times. Good appetite for work. End product lacked the majesty of his Aston Villa intervention. 6.5

City substitutes

• Ivo Pinto n/a

(for Harrison Reed, 81)

• Nelson Oliveira n/a

(for Dennis Srbeny, 81)

• Wes Hoolahan n/a

(for Moritz Leitner, 85)
