Stupendous. As stupendous as only the sixth straight win that takes us roaring into a playoff place can be. Are you watching, Wanderers? Scratch that, we know they’re watching – the thought of Wolves and Bolton fans returning from the pub last night, bringing up CEEFAX page 309, cursing loudly, then flicking over to 325 for a terrified glance at the league table was one of the evening’s many joys.

100 Greatest Watford Wins- No.54: The tension was unbearable. At times, Watford’s fans could simply not watch – and not just because the setting sun behind the Vale Park was blinding. A week earlier, the game had been postponed after heavy rain during the afternoon. Now it was on, Watford knew victory would take them into the play-off zone with just two games left.
