27th March 1982-Division Two, Watford 3 Bolton Wanderers 0

This was the first time we had ever topped the Second Division. Less than six months later we’d be top of the First.

After the game Graham Taylor commented about the atmosphere at Vicarage Road and said that if a team like Newcastle had been in our position the place would be electric and these comments were picked up by the press. Graham clarified his comments to the Watford Observer during the week saying in particular he’d been upset by some criticism from the home supporters of Steve Terry. He apologised both in his programme notes and on the pitch at the next home game against Crystal Palace.
