A Heidar Helguson brace piled the pressure on struggling Forest. The Iceland international converted two almost identical headers taking his season’s tally to six. He gave Watford the lead on 20 minutes when he met Neal Ardley’s free-kick at the near post, and the pair combined seven minutes later for a second.
BSAD report: We all know that Heidar is a bit of a nutter. Affectionately dubbed in my part of the Rookery as the “puffin eater”, our Icelandic warrior has never been scared to put his head where most people would not put their feet and on occasions defies all sorts of scientific logic with his ability to just keep charging around like a maniac for far longer than one thinks humanly possible.
