With Troy Deeney absent, Matej Vydra gave Hornets fans a timely reminder of his goal-scoring capabilities as he netted the only goal in Watford’s 1-0 pre-season victory at Boreham Wood.
As we gathered at Meadow Park, the news on everyone’s lips was that Deeney was absent from the squad. The conclusion was that we had seen the last of him in a Watford shirt, which is a great shame but, if it does come, nobody can deny that the lad deserves his move. Since our last visit the ground has undergone a transformation, with the covered terrace along one side of the ground replaced with a shiny new stand.
There aren’t any highlights of the actual match on YouTube but there are highlights of McGugan warming up.
