BBC Sport Watford boss Marco Silva says he was never worried about their bad form, as they beat Leicester City to end a six-game winless run.

sky Watford picked up a first win in seven games after coming from behind to earn a 2-1 victory over Leicester at Vicarage Road on Boxing Day.

guardian Watford have bemoaned their misfortune in recent weeks but here Marco Silva’s team were grateful for the unwitting assistance of Kasper Schmeichel as they fought back from a deficit to end a miserable series of results. The Leicester City goalkeeper turned a cross by Abdoulaye Doucouré into his own net in the 65th minute to complete Watford’s comeback after Molla Wagué had negated Riyad Mahrez’s opening goal for the visitors.

TelegraphLittle more than an hour had passed of another stodgy Watford performance when Marco Silva’s side contrived to waste a promising free-kick so spectacularly that the resulting shot from Abdoulaye Doucoure flew out for a throw-in.

BHappy imageYes, Swansea on Saturday looked a winnable fixture, maybe, but the gentle descent in our recent run from the forgivable through the slightly unfortunate to the downright appalling hadn’t left us banking on anything much.

FranAfter a lovely Christmas day with the family, it was off to Vicarage Road to see if we could arrest the recent slump.   The Boxing Day game is one of the first that I look for when the fixtures come out.  I always look forward to them, even if they rarely give us anything to cheer (I am still smarting from the injury time goal by Kirk Stephens in 1979).

Tales from the VicarageAfter four defeats on the bounce, Watford returned to winning ways on a tense Boxing Day afternoon at The Vic.
