Sky Sports: Hughes sliced wide for the Hornets, who were then reduced to 10 men with two minutes remaining, full-back Kiko Femenia sent off for his second booking after pushing Kazenga LuaLua over as he chased a ball forward.
BHappy: The other thing about derby games is that they matter so much more when your team is terrible. In the past Watford and Luton’s fortunes often rose and fell together and at times it very much felt as if all there was to play for was avoiding relegation and this. This Luton incarnation isn’t terrible – they’re in pretty much exactly the League position you’d have predicted based on their solid but limited showing at the Vic at the start of the season. Nonetheless, the Hornets have rather more to play for as it stands; Luton’s survival was confirmed mathematically by this win, but effectively a done deal some time ago. Knocking us off our perch a very much more tantalising objective for them than not being knocked off would be for us.
