7th March 2015- Championship, Wolverhampton Wanderers 2 Watford 2

Watford captain Troy Deeney saved his side as he rescued a point against promotion rivals Wolves in a pulsating 2-2 Sky Bet Championship draw at Molineux.

Tommie Hoban was shown a second yellow for Watford before Wolves’ Bakary Sako was given a straight red after raising his hand to Fernando Forestieri.

After the game a Watford fan, Nic Cruwys, was the victim of an unprovoked attack by six teenagers. He was left in a critical condition, spent three weeks in a medically induced coma and had life changing injuries as a result of the assault.

Watford FC dedicated all subsequent games that season to Nic, using the phrase ‘For Nic, For Promotion’.

‘Every win for the rest of this season is dedicated to Nic Cruwys’

In autumn 2016 the teenagers were found guilty of various offences relating to the attack and four of them were jailed.

Watford’s official website gave an update about Nic in 2018.
