Wolves skipper Roger Johnson has admitted being axed from the side earlier this month was "the worst moment" of his career.

Central defender Johnson made the £5million move from Birmingham to Molineux during the summer and was instantly made captain by manager Mick McCarthy in place of Karl Henry.

But he struggled to reproduce the form shown with Blues and was dropped for the 2-1 home win over Sunderland at the beginning of December and replaced by veteran Jody Craddock. And Johnson said: "Being left out of the team was the worst moment of my career to date."
