31st March 1986- Division One, Arsenal 0 Watford 2

The first game of the double-header against Arsenal. This game was always scheduled to be played on Easter Monday but the fixture at Vicarage Road which should have been on Boxing Day 1985 was postponed twice and eventually rearranged for 1st April meaning the sides would face each other on consecutive days.
