Watford Observer: RECAP: Watford 2 Millwall 2
BHappy: On the hour, the now customary triple sub (and as an aside, I still fancy that the disciplined rotating of legs in the midfield in particular has contributed to, touching wood, a very favourable injury record this season). On came Rajović, Louza and Martins… and almost immediately we lost our footing. Millwall, perhaps, contributed to this… taking advantage of a third of our outfield players having been swapped to up their own energy and force us backwards with their own best spell as our new guys got up to speed with a game that had been verging on volatile from the start.
Fran’s Watford Blog: It was another improved performance. The tedium of a few weeks ago has been replaced by a team with much more attacking intent, although some of the defensive frailties remain. The run of unbeaten games may only have stretched to three before Saturday, but it has brought with it an increasing confidence that manifests itself in more attacking play. The return of Sema has certainly added something as he is never afraid to try to beat a player and he makes things happen. I was also pleased that Asprilla put in a good showing after starting, proving that he isn’t just an impact sub. The triple substitution was maybe not Ismaël’s best decision as the three who were replaced had all been playing well. But it was inattentiveness at set pieces which let us down again.
