Watford battled back from a goal down to secure their first home win of the season against struggling Millwall in the Championship.

BHappy image report:If our attacks still felt unnatural, as if we were doing something that forced us out of our comfort zone, we were at least applying a reasonable amount of pressure, and were worthy of the three points.

BBC SportIshmael Miller scored the only goal as Nottingham Forest moved out of the Championship relegation zone with victory at Watford.

TelegraphWatford, who had enjoyed the better of the second half, pressed on undeterred with John Eustace sending a well-struck shot straight into the arms of Lee Camp in the dying minutes of the game.

BHappy imageThe formation appears designed with containment in mind; containment not just of the opposition, but of our own creativity and imagination, as if getting too carried away might prove dangerous, as if risk and chance are things to be eliminated at all costs. Reinforcement of those ideas comes from the bench, with substitutions so numbingly conservative that they’re announced in the small ads of the Daily Mail rather than over the tannoy. The totality is a crumbling communist edifice, built with the thought that attacking is merely defending with the ball.

10th September 2011-Championship, Reading 0 Watford 2

BBC SportReading slipped to a fourth straight defeat as Watford picked up their first Championship win of the season.Winger Mark Yeates opened the scoring in the 12th minute when he curled a 25-yard set piece over the wall and into the bottom corner.

Royals.org: With three new signings making their home debut against a team without a win so far this season, there was an air of optimism among the Reading fans before kick off in spite a poor run of results. What followed left everyone at the club feeling deflated if not demoralised.

1st September 2011- UEFA European Under 21 Championship Qualifier, England Under 21s 6 Azerbaijan Under 21s 0 (played at Vicarage Road)

BBC SportStuart Pearce’s England Under-21s thrashed Azerbaijan to start their Euro 2013 qualifying campaign in style.

skyStuart Pearce’s England U21 side made a bright start to their Euro Championship qualifying campaign with a 6-0 rout of Azerbaijan.

guardianSix goals, six debutants, three points and no sign of a sea change. England could not have wished for a more comfortable start to their attempt to qualify for a fourth successive European Under-21 Championship as they disposed of Azerbaijan with ease, but there was nothing here to suggest that they will fare any better in the 2013 finals in Israel, if they get there, than they did during June’s dispiriting performance in the 2011 tournament.

TelegraphA journey of 2,250 miles begins with a single step, and although England were scarcely bothered by their Caucasian visitors in their opening European Championship qualifier, it was an encouragingly cohesive display from the side that Stuart Pearce hopes will lead him to Israel in 2013.

Hornblogger: I remember fondly the last Under 21 international at Vicarage Road which took place 23 years ago.  My mate Laurence and I refer to it regularly because it was at the time, and probably remains, one of the most boring games we’d ever witnessed.  For years afterwards we ceased using words like boring, dull and grim and instead would use ‘Denmark Under 21’s’ to describe anything bad that happened.
