Adam Federici - 7

Rarely troubled, faultless.

Stephen Kelly - 7

Solid, kept Lafferty quiet throughout, caught out once by a crossfield pass to Murphy.

Chris Gunter - 5

Ineffective, most of Norwich's bright play came on his side, a recurring opposition theme most weeks.

Michael Hector - 8

Dealt with Jerome, Hooper, Murphy and Grabban well, composed performance.

Jake Cooper - 9

Superb, flawless display capped by the two goals.

Hal Robson-Kanu - 6

Quiet match, ineffective as an attacking force with the exception of the long range effort just prior to the equaliser.

Garath McCleary - 6

Dangerous outlet but struggled to impose himself. Needs time to regain full match fitness

Oliver Norwood - 7

Typically composed display, intelligent with the ball, assist for the equaliser.

Danny Williams - 7

All action as is the way with him, love it when he drives forward with the ball, starting to impose himself on matches like we know he can.

Jordan Obita - 6

Playing through the middle again, was generally ineffective although gains an assist for the winner. Must play wide or at left back, looks lost in the middle.

Glenn Murray - 6

On the receiving end of a bit of a battering by Michael Turner whose hands were everywhere in aerial challenges with no punishment from a bemusing referee. As a result rarely held the ball up, so invited pressure. Booked in the end and had a warning for persistent infringements, subbed in the end.

Substitutes

Jake Taylor - 6

On for McCleary with Obita moving wide, failed to impose in the middle but was neat and tidy with the ball generally.

Nick Blackman - 5

On for Williams, similar to Taylor although I'm not sure he even touched the ball!!

Anton Ferdinand - 7

On for Murray, did what was needed to see our young pairing through to full time.
