Sky: Local boy Josh Coburn scored the 63rd-minute winner that halted an improbable comeback by Watford, who now sit just a point above their visitors having won just one of their last eight league fixtures.
Watford Observer: RECAP: Watford 2 Middlesbrough 3
BHappy: If three goals within the opening twenty minutes sounds exciting, it really wasn’t. “Park football” was Vicky’s comment as the visitors demonstrated that they were equally capable of offering unchallenged chances… an accurate but optimistic Porteous pass somehow found it’s way beyond Boro’s defence to Bayo who even more somehow overcame his traditional fallibility in such situations to steady himself and roll past Dieng.
Fran’s Watford Blog: Ismaël made a change at the break bringing Martins on in place of Rajović, who had been invisible. The substitute was involved immediately winning a corner. His next contribution was to find Dele-Bashiru whose shot from outside the box cleared the bar. The Hornets should have equalised when a cross from Ngakia was met by a great header from Bayo that was on target, but Dieng made a wonderful save to keep it out. The resultant corner was cleared to Hoedt on the edge of the box from where he found the bottom corner to level the game. It was interesting that he ran to the dugout to celebrate. There was another booking for the Hornets as Sierralta was cautioned for a rash challenge on Crooks. The Boro player stayed on his feet, which was as well, or Sierralta could have seen red.
