Norwich City Player Ratings
Tim Krul (7)
Had one or two iffy moments but he was solid throughout the game. The Dutchman made a couple of good saves.
Max Aarons (8)
His forward runs threatened the Wednesday defence all game. Was involved in Pukki’s second goal in sumptuous style.
Christoph Zimmermann (7.5)
Got into a tangle with the keeper once, however, the centre-back was solid at the back all game.
Timm Klose (7)
After a fairly unsure start, Klose was a secure and solid presence at the back alongside Zimmermann.
Jamal Lewis (7.5)
Beat the hamstring and played a great game. His runs up and down the pitch were impactful throughout.
Alex Tettey (7)
A very timid first half from the captain but he improved in the second half markedly.
Moritz Leitner (7.5)
It was his miscued shot which fell in the path of Pukki to score the opener. A fine display from Leitner overall, alongside Tettey.
Emiliano Buendia (8)
Was an ever-present threat to the Wednesday defence. Scored the goal which was very well taken.
Mario Vrancic (7)
A woeful penalty in the first half, but he did well after the break to set up a goal for Srbeny. A fine display overall.
Onel Hernandez (7)
He was always positive, looking to take on defenders and beat them. Should be disappointed to not have scored.
Teemu Pukki (9)
Worked hard all game and scored twice. A very good performance from the striker.
Denis Srbeny (Subbed on after 80 mins) (7)
Scored a goal after coming on to wrap things up.
Marco Stiepermann (Subbed on after 83 mins) (N/A)
No time to really make an impact.
Ben Godfrey (Subbed on after 89 mins) (N/A)
No time to have an impact.
