100 greatest100 Greatest Watford Wins- No. 63 : Watford’s first away game was at The Dell. Only two years ago, they had been humbled 4-0 in the first leg of a League Cup tie before that incredible comeback at Vicarage Road. Now the two teams met as equals.


The table shows we were top of the league following this win. However nothing was made of it at the time because back then the league table wasn’t considered official until after three games of the season had been played. We were top officially after the game with West Brom.
