Sheffield United eased to victory over Watford as summer signing Ched Evans opened his goal account for the Blades. Jamie Ward had given the hosts an early lead when he drove in a shot after the ball broke to him from a Brian Howard free-kick. Evans wrapped up the win when he skilfully evaded several lunging defenders before rifling home.

Watford defender Williamson headed over the crossbar from a corner and Jobi McAnuff shot high and wide from 25 yards. But moments after Watford summer signing Danny Graham had lifted his shot over the crossbar the home side doubled their lead.

HornbloggerWe seemed to start well but after 12 minutes didn’t defend a simple cross and Jamie Ward, who isn’t much bigger than your average Smurf, easily knocked the ball past Loach. From then on neither the team or the fans seemed to have any belief at all that we’d get back into the game.
