The Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton has revealed his hurt at being branded a "cheat" by Wolves fans last weekend. Karl Henry was shown a straight red card for kicking out at Albrighton during the second half of Villa's 3-2 win at Molineux.

Albrighton said: "[The kick] was pretty hard and it winded me. It's something I wouldn't want again. It does hurt a lot, especially when people in the crowd call you a cheat when I was the victim, on the floor getting kicked. But that's football, these days."
