It was so muddy by the last race at the Redgrave cyclo-cross that Stephen James’ chainwheel threw off his chain on the very first lap.

Harleston Magpies made the long journey to Brighton and returned home with a hard-earned point – although it should really have been all three.

Harleston Magpies were unable to follow up their superb win of the previous weekend against leaders Slough as Hampstead and Westminister scored late on to take all three points in a 2-1 win.

Last Saturday followed the pattern of most of my recent visits to Stamford Bridge; City battled hard and showed great spirit but ultimately came up short although the sound of the Chelsea ‘faithful’ singing “we’re going to win the league” in the closing stages without the slightest hint of irony provided some mild amusement.

Norwich City celebrate scoring against Bournemouth - and its the games in the mini league which really matter for Canaries.

Troy Deeney wasn’t the player I had expected to be writing about.

Asked to name a player who has appeared in every one of the last 26 first-team squads of 18 put out by Alex Neil what would your answer be? John Ruddy? Sebastien Bassong? Wes Hoolahan?

For the true football aficionado last week’s first half probably constituted a fascinating game of cat and mouse. For the rest of us it was just 45 minutes of our lives that we’ll never get back.
