Sam Wallace: A damned difficult day out – how Philip Brown suffered at the hands of Arsène

We will never know if Cesc Fabregas spat at the feet of Brian Horton, the assistant manager of Hull City, last Tuesday night. So, in the spirit of The Damned United film released on Friday – telling the story of Brian Clough's 44 days at Leeds United – let us fill in the historical gaps.

Not for the first time this season, the Championship seemed to turn on its head, with only one of the top 11 sides winning and only one in the bottom eight losing. Championship leaders Wolves' slump in form hit a new low as they lost 1-0 at home to previously freefalling Plymouth Argyle. Paul Sturrock's side made the best possible start when a long throw into the Wolves box was dealt with inadequately and Paul Gallagher's acrobatic overhead kick flew in off the crossbar with just 39 seconds on the watch. With ample time to recover, Wolves huffed and puffed but found no way back. They have won only once in their past 11 games.
