Sheffield Wednesday lost 3-1 to Norwich City at Carrow Road

Here's how we rated the performances

Keiren Westwood 6

Made a few good saves but perhaps could have coped better with the shot that led to Norwich's equaliser

Liam Palmer 5

Pretty average display, seems to be making better runs forward but crossing needs to improve

Glenn Loovens 4

Never blessed with pace, Loovens has been looking even slower lately and it’s also his job to organise what is currently a sloppy defence

Joost van Aken 5

Still got a lot to learn - does some things very well then looks a little bit lost at other times

Morgan Fox 5

Like Palmer his defending is OK and he gets forward well enough but his deliveries from wide are often poor

Ross Wallace 4

Looked lively in the opening stages then disappeared completely from the game

Barry Bannan 5

A game where his consistent carrying of the team looked to finally catch up with him. Not as influential as he has been previously

David Jones 4

Broke up play a little but aside from that didn’t overly offer anything to the team

Adam Reach 6

Played well in the first 45 minutes and provided the pass for the goal but he, too, drifted out of the game

Gary Hooper 5

Arguably his worst display of the season. Nothing seemed to stick and he struggled to make a mark

Jordan Rhodes 5

He did what he was there to do and that’s score but aside from that moment his impact was negligible

Substitutes

Kieran Lee 4

Struggled to get into the game

Atdhe Nuhiu 4

At 78 minutes and given his recent impact probably came on too late

Not Used

Joe Wildsmith, Frederico Venancio, Daniel Pudil, Jacob Butterfield, Lucas Joao
