Todd Cantwell is continuing to get admiring glances for his performances in the Championship and he maintained his form in Norwich's win over Cardiff.

Cantwell started the season slowly and was out of the team for a spell but has responded well; him and Emiliano Buendia have regularly been the difference-makers and Cantwell's (7.7) tap-in in the first half proved to be the winning goal in Wales.

Elsewhere, the best performance of the round came from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (8.6) was imperious in midfield for Luton as they took advantage of an early red card to defeat promotion-chasing Bournemouth, netting his side's only goal.

In Nottingham, Sammy Ameobi (8.1) scored two simply fantastic goals in the victory over Millwall, slamming his first home from the edge of the area before exchanging passes and curling a wonderful clinching goal.

Bristol City defensive duo Zak Vyner (8.0) and Alfie Mawson (7.8) were excellent in keeping Preston at bay and retain City's run at the playoff positions. They were joined by forward Famara Diedhiou (7.6), who struck a crucial goal in the contest.

Goalkeeper Jamal Blackman (7.5) helped Rotherham give Wayne Rooney's Derby a disappointing day in the week he was appointed as permanent manager at Pride Park. Swansea's excellent defensive record continued at Barnsley and Benjamin Cabango (7.6) scored a goal to boot in the victory.

Tom Cleverley (7.7), Kiko Femenia (7.6) and Ryan Yates (7.9) also make the selection.
