BBC SportLeeds captain Richard Naylor hit the winner in his 450th career appearance to end Watford’s unbeaten start to the season in a poor game at Vicarage Road.

skyLeeds United made it back-to-back Championship victories as captain Richard Naylor struck to end Watford’s unbeaten start to the season.

BSAD imageThe sort of game, frankly, that I was dreading in the summer. Leeds weren’t particularly better than us – but they were bigger, stronger and, crucially, one goal up for most of the game.

BBC SportLeague One side Notts County caused an upset by knocking Watford out of the Carling Cup despite the Championship side largely dictating the play.

BHappy image
Bhappy report: So much a game of two halves that using more than a pair of thunks – good thunk, bad thunk – seems a little wasteful. Unless you count this as a thunk in its own right, of course. Ah.

skyHull City failed to bounce back from their drubbing last weekend after they could only manage a 0-0 draw against Watford. The Tigers, who suffered a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Millwall last weekend, were unable to find the net in a forgettable clash at the KC Stadium, while the Hornets maintained their unbeaten start to the season. Hull went close on three occasions thanks to new signing Robert Koren, while goalkeeper Matt Duke managed to keep a clean sheet, denying Danny Graham and Jordon Mutch after half-time.

BBC SportCoventry salvaged a point at Watford courtesy of late goals from David Bell and Lukas Jutkiewicz.  Will Buckley headed the Hornets in front and Coventry old boy John Eustace fired in a second after the Sky Blues only partially cleared a corner.

skyCoventry City produced a dramatic comeback at Vicarage Road to snatch a 2-2 draw against Watford.  Malky Mackay’s Watford appeared set to follow up an opening game win over Norwich City with another three points after Will Buckley and John Eustace scored.

BHappy imageBoothroyd. Still can’t bring myself to like him. Didn’t boo him, but…. in accepting, revelling in the reception of the crowd at the end of the game, he should have stopped short of the fist-waving celebration. You were welcomed back Aidy, but we support Watford, not you. We weren’t going to share in your celebration. Perhaps old habits die hard.

10th August 2010-League Cup First Round, Aldershot Town 0 Watford 3

Scott Loach warmed the bench two nights running, the first at the Recreation Ground and the second at the more glamorous surroundings of Wembley Stadium.   Rene Gilmartin made his Watford debut for this League Cup game whilst Scott was an unused sub.  The following day Ben Foster withdrew from the England squad to play Hungary and Fabio Capello called Loach up as a late replacement.  He didn’t play as England won 2-1.

Danny Graham bagged another brace as Watford eased into the second round of the Carling Cup with victory over Aldershot. The 24-year-old striker netted twice in Watford’s opening day win at Norwich and repeated the feat against the League Two side, scoring either side of Marvin Sordell’s effort. Manager Malky Mackay made just one change from Friday’s Championship opener. Rene Gilmartin replaced Scott Loach in goal after the 22-year-old received a late call up to Fabio Capello’s England squad for Wednesday’s friendly with Hungary.
