Sam Vokes’ goal 22 seconds after coming on inspired Burnley to a 2-1 turnaround win at Watford.
Watford, who had gone ahead just after the hour mark through Roberto Pereyra, drop a place to 12th despite dominating possession and creating more clear-cut scoring opportunities at Vicarage Road.
“We dominated the game, we had more shots on target but it wasn’t enough,” said Javi Gracia. “We should have killed the game.”
It meant Dyche could enjoy victory against the club where he started his coaching career before they questionably let him slip.
As at all Premier League grounds, there was a minute’s applause for Ray Wilkins, whose passing at the ridiculously young age of 61 hit me rather hard. His time at Vicarage Road was not one that is remembered fondly by Watford fans, but when I met him at the kit sponsors do, I found him to be a lovely man (unlike Vialli). It was pleasing that the applause in his memory started well before it was instructed.
Onto Huddersfield next week then and you’ll all be pleased to know that it isn’t classed as the North West, so there’s the slim chance we might win.
