  Goal: 1   2

Because the game was played at 12.15pm we had to wait for the 3pm kick offs to finish before it was confirmed we’d been promoted.  The players found out whilst on the coach going back to Watford.

BBC SportWatford clinched promotion to the Premier League after they beat Brighton and other results went their way.

skyMiddlesbrough slumped to a 4-3 defeat at Fulham and Norwich could only draw 1-1 at Rotherham, sealing Watford’s return to the top flight after an eight-year absence.

guardianWatford’s lunchtime win on the south coast put them four points clear of the chasing pack thanks to Troy Deeney’s first-half goal and a stoppage time second from the substitute Matej Vydra.

BHappy imageFootball is about waiting for moments that might never arrive, about playing them through in your imagination over and over, about being there to see if it happens…and then finding Matej Vydra taking what seems like an age to control the ball, threatening to let that moment slip away, and then sliding it calmly into the bottom corner before the whole world turns yellow and red and inside out and upside down.

The Watford Observer produced a supplement marking the Hornets promotion which included several pictures from the game and the celebrations that followed.

25th April 2009- Championship, Coventry City 2 Watford 3

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=4866

Watford battled back from two down to secure a dramatic victory in a five-goal thriller at the Ricoh Arena.

“One day Lloydy will score”.  Well it should have been today… after one cut inside and dragged shot ride, the sort of thing that’s become almost passé over recent weeks, we suddenly had Lloydinho following up (following up!!!) Priskin’s first half shot.  Not quite an empty net but the keeper was grounded, almost predictably Doyley’s excitement got the better of him and the shot went over.  Probably a good thing, not sure I could have taken the excitement.
