Victor Moses opened the scoring after Julian Speroni’s clearance caused havoc in the visiting defence before Alan Lee nodded home Danny Butterfield’s cross. Watford missed a chance to fight back on the stroke of half-time when Speroni saved Danny Graham’s penalty. The in-form Darren Ambrose then wrapped up the win from the edge of the area with his sixth goal in as many games.
The more this goes on, the greater is the credence to the argument that we’re not playing a succession of bad teams at home… we’re making teams look bad. Our midfield was again phenomenal, Lansbury and Cowie in particular standing out, and that movement and ball retention is going to expose plenty of teams, even those that haven’t had to cope with an early morning hotel fire alarm like Scunny. It could have been six.
