Hull forward Craig Fagan may consider taking legal action against Newcastle's Danny Guthrie over the tackle that broke his leg.
Tuesday 16 September 2008
Hull have confirmed Danny Guthrie's tackle on Craig Fagan in Saturday's Premier League match resulted in a broken right leg for the striker. Guthrie's challenge in the final moments of the Tigers' 2-1 victory saw him issued with a straight red card and Fagan left the ground on crutches. The Tigers confirmed on their website that the damage was revealed by an X-ray yesterday morning. The 25-year-old former Derby striker suffered a fractured tibia and the injury is likely to keep him out of action for between six weeks and three months. Tigers manager Phil Brown was scathing about Guthrie's tackle. "It cannot be tolerated, it needs to be kicked out of the game," he said. "When you see that the end product is him putting a fellow pro in a cast, it's just not right. I don't care what is going on at Newcastle, you cannot tolerate this. If I go back to the incident, my players were killing time in the corner, something that every Premier League club does."

Birmingham City striker Kevin Phillips scored late winners as a substitute in his side's first two Championship matches and was rewarded with a start against Barnsley. By the 12th minute he had repaid manager Alex McLeish's faith when the Tykes left him unmarked to head in Stuart Parnaby's cross, Phillips's third goal in three games.

Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp struggled to make an impact at Bramall Lane last season after moving from Scunthorpe United, but his hat-trick in the 3-0 defeat of Queens Park Rangers will have silenced the doubters. His goals came from a close-range header (three minutes), a perceptive pass from Gary Speed and pacy break (10), and a scrambled prod (51).

Once when Roy Keane and El Hadji Diouf looked at each other, it was with menace in their eyes. Competitive, combustible and controversial, each recognised something familiar in the other and did not like it too much. Not until last week, though, did we discover those glares also included admiration.

Ruud van Nistelrooy is not someone you would expect to affect the outcome of the Championship relegation battle, but should Preston North End stay in the division the Real Madrid player may be owed a debt of gratitude by a fellow centre-forward, Chris Brown.

To print arrangements for the Championship play-offs, as Charlton did in yesterday's programme, turned out to be embarrassingly premature. They remain among the contenders for that end-of-season dogfight but this deserved defeat, in which they were resoundingly booed from very early on until the final whistle, puts a dent in their ambitions of getting straight back into the Premier League.
