An injury-time equaliser from Leicester’s Dany N’Guessan denied Watford their third straight victory in an enthralling match at Vicarage Road.
Heidar Helguson’s returned for his first game at Watford since re-signing for The Hornets and his brace looked to have won it for the home side.
They may need a new central defender and a couple of midfielders at Vicarage Road, but the scriptwriter is clearly still in rude health. A game with more twists and turns than the River Colne ended with points and goals, thrillingly shared.
Only one place to start. Jaysus. The level of expectation associated with Helguson’s return might have been slightly moderated by his injury-burdened last few years, but only slightly. It was still wholly unreasonable to expect him to pick up where he left off, the whirling dervish focal point of the team. As it turned out he exceeded all expectations… announcing his arrival by flying into Leicester’s goalkeeper within thirty seconds and deflecting the ball narrowly the wrong side of the post.
