Don Cowie had given the Hornets a 17th-minute lead before on-loan striker Tresor Kandol’s well-taken brace turned the game in Charlton’s favour before half-time. Watford drew level through Grzegorz Rasiak before Priskin struck seven minutes from time to secure a fourth win in five games for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Both clubs have new managers since they met in August with higher ambitions. Two seasons ago they played a goalless draw here in the Premier League in front of 27,000. Under the sinking circumstances it says much for Charlton and their fans that they have not fallen below 20,000.
Some blinding goals for the Golden Boys. Make sure that you catch Rasiak’s if you weren’t there. Or even if you were. Wallop. And Priskin’s wonderful winner… my brother’s celebratory text informing a friend of developments contained a single word that said everything. Dink.
