Huddersfield Town suffered their heaviest defeat of the season after Norwich City blew the Terriers away with a five-goal second-half blitz at Carrow Road.

Murray Wallace's early sending-off proved fatal to the Town cause as Norwich - boosted by the half-time introduction of Nathan Redmond - struck three times in the opening five minutes after the break.

Former Leeds United midfielder Bradley Johnson netted twice and Redmond, Cameron Jerome and another substitute Lewis Grabban grabbed further goals as Chris Powell's side capitulated in the second period.

But how did each Town player rank in the damaging loss to Neil Adams' men?

Smithies -  Was left helpless for a number of the goals due to the haphazard defending that took place in front of him but may look at himself positionally for Redmond's looped header to put Norwich two to the good. 4.

Smith - Was asked to move all over the defence as a result of Murray Wallace's dismissal and initially did well against an energetic full-back in Olsson but was found wanting after the break. Went close with a brilliant second-half effort. 4.

Hudson - The captain has suffered a slight dip in form in recent times and this was by far his worst performance for the Terriers since arriving from Cardiff City. Was badly at fault for the ultimately crucial sending-off and was increasingly nervy thereafter. 3.

Wallace - Not helped by a woeful error from his captain and central defensive partner Hudson but his challenge on Jerome was a clumsy one and he did not have to go flying in so recklessly. Unfortunately handed his side an uphill battle. 3.

Robinson - Wonderful performance against Brentford but struggled from the outset against Norwich, with a lot of the hosts' play coming down his flank. Redmond ran riot against him in the second half but was not solely to blame. 3.

Butterfield - Struggled to impose himself against his former club and was forced to sit back to try and quell the hosts after the sending-off, which doesn't suit his qualities. Grew more and more frustrated as the game wore on as the Canaries constantly got through the midfield. 4.

Hogg - Set up Wells for a first-half opportunity but could not get close to Norwich's interchanging midfield as Town struggled as a collective once down to 10 men. Never gave up and went close with a snapshot late on. 5.

Coady - Coped admirably with his switch to central defence and can be proud of his first-half efforts there, even if he tailed off slightly after the break. Kept going but his energy and, ultimately, performance levels dropped after the interval. 5.

Wells - His goalscoring drought continues after hitting the crossbar early on but could not be faulted for his desire to track back and help out Robinson as an auxiliary left winger. Slightly unfortunate to be withdrawn at the break. 5.

Holt - Started well and provided Town with an initial presence up front but his performance faded and he became a forlorn figure on his return to Carrow Road in the second half as he chased lost causes in vain. 4.

Scannell - Never managed to really get into the game and suffered particularly after the break as Town had to contend with wave after wave of Norwich attacks. 4.

Substitutes:

Dixon -  Introduced as an additional defensive option on the left flank for the second period but was beaten far too easily by the brilliant Redmond on too many occasions. 3.
