WFC.Net goal commentary: 1
BBC Sport: Vakoun Bayo’s late breakaway goal earned victory for Watford and left managerless Norwich City pondering a dismal home run which has now seen them win just once in nine Championship matches at Carrow Road.
BHappy: This is far from a perfect performance. But by god it’s inspiring stuff, as if we’ve saved up three games’ worth of bloody-mindedness and spent all our chips on a big blow out in Norfolk. The game itself is wide open, frantic and breathless; as such it suits down to the ground certain players who might have been exposed in a tighter encounter where one mistake might make the difference.
Fran’s Watford blog: The home side had a great chance to equalise with a shot from Nuñez that was deflected just wide. Then, from a corner, Pukki had a shot that was just wide of the target. Having scored so late, we didn’t think that we would have too long to hang on until the fourth official indicated that there was 9 minutes of added time. Norwich had a great chance to salvage a point when Sara won a free-kick in a dangerous position. He took it himself and his effort was close, bouncing off the far post. The final whistle went to much merriment in the away end. After the last couple of games, it was so lovely seeing the players celebrating with beaming smiles and shirts being thrown into the crowd.
