23rd February 2008- Championship, Watford 0 Preston North End 0

Watford lost ground on leaders Stoke after being held by spirited Preston.

On Saturday night, as Watford’s players digested another disappointing home result in a season blighted by them, they were asking themselves one question: chicken or beef?

12th February 2008- Championship, Watford 1 Leicester City 0

Darius Henderson scored on the brink of half-time to keep 10-man Watford one point clear at the top of the Championship table.

What a complete turnaround in terms of defensive resilience.  Wolves in the cup was just seventeen days ago…

2nd February 2008- Championship, Watford 3 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0

This was just one week after we lost 4-1 to them at the Vic in the FA Cup.

Tommy Smith scored twice in the last 15 minutes as Watford beat Wolves to move up to second spot in the Championship.
