Norwich City salvaged a 1-1 draw at lowly Sunderland after missing a host of chances – and here’s your chance to rate the performances of the Canaries players.

Daniel Farke’s team were looking to build on a 3-1 home win over Aston Villa at the weekend but eventually left the Stadium of Light relieved to be taking away a point.

Aiden McGeady missed a penalty for the Black Cats five minutes before the break, striking the post, as had Nelson Oliviera for the visitors in the first half.

The Wearsiders did move ahead in the 63rd minute though after a McGeady shot beat Angus Gunn and hit the left-hand post, allowing Lyden Gooch to tap into an empty net.

James Maddison hit the post for City before skipper Ivo Pinto lashed home an equaliser in the 89th minute, before Josh Murphy was denied by a fine Lee Camp save in injury-time, with Maddison also wasting a good opportunity late on.

The draw saw Farke’s team drop a place to 13th in the Championship table due to Ipswich winning 1-0 at home to Barnsley and left Sunderland seven points from safety, with just 12 left to play four and tough games still to play.
