Hull boss Brown refused to taunt Derby

Hull City boss Phil Brown refused to gloat as he passed Derby County on the way into the Premiership on Saturday.

"It was not a nice feeling to be on the end of a sacking after 27 years unbroken service in the game," he admitted. "It was a dark time for me, but hopefully I have put that one to bed.

"At the time I played a bit of golf, went racing, tried to relax and then concentrated on a plan to get back in the game.

"Eventually I got the phone call that mattered. I realise what is at stake, I realise that my opportunity is here and now and I'm ready for it.

"I may have put my head on the block by getting into the Premier League, but I prefer it that way. It is about brave decisions, brave men and brave people around that man. Hopefully we will have all that next season."
