BBC SportTroy Deeney became the first Watford player to score 20 goals in three successive seasons as Middlesbrough lost their place at the Championship summit.

skyMiddlesbrough moved back to the top of the table with a 1-0 win over Wigan on Friday, but they were knocked off the summit within three days by Watford, who moved into pole position themselves before being usurped by Bournemouth and Norwich later on Easter Monday.

TelegraphWatford actually grew stronger as the game went on, and could have won by a wider margin than two. Even more encouraging was the way they defended the threat of Patrick Bamford, one of the Championship’s in-form strikers, who barely got a sight of goal.

guardian With his stilted English delivered in unwavering monotone, Slavisa Jokanovic – Watford’s fourth manager of the season – seems an unlikely inspiration but in these most pressured circumstances his side produced probably their most convincing display of the season.

BHappy imageAitor Karanka was later to join the ranks of managers complaining about our strike threat as if it’s some kind of unfair advantage, like a twelfth player or a bribed referee.

6th April 2012- Championship, Watford 0 Blackpool 2

Two goals from Stephen Dobbie earned Blackpool victory over Watford and further cemented their position in the play-off places. The striker – on-loan from Swansea – scored his first by beating keeper Tomasz Kuszczak after a mazy run.

The defeat brought an end to Watford’s seven-match unbeaten run which had raised hopes of gatecrashing the play-offs at Vicarage Road.

Sean Dyche, the Watford manager, could not hide his feelings after his side let their unbeaten run slip. “I’m disappointed in our performance today. We’ve gone along very well lately, a couple of hiccups since Christmas but got over that swiftly and had a great run, so I’m disappointed.

Palpable disappointment.  Obviously.  And that’s the fault of nobody bar those of us who’d allowed ourselves to get a bit carried away with things.  There are mitigating circumstances, there’s context, there’s stuff that didn’t quite fall our way (see below).  But there’s no two ways of interpreting your visitors being able to take off two key attacking players in the closing twenty minutes or so, for a bit of a rest.

6th April 2002- New Division One, Watford 0 Sheffield United 3

Sheffield United heaped misery on Watford boss Gianluca Vialli with a convincing victory at Vicarage Road.

If the 21st of April, and the Gillingham match that will finally put us out of our apparently infinite misery, is designated “Fan Appreciation Day”, then what on earth was this? “Fan Dissuasion Day”? “Fan Repulsion Day”? Whatever, it cleared the ground more efficiently than a fire alarm.

The applause for Robert Page, returning to his spiritual home, was a worthy tribute to a great club servant. It was noticeable that he did not gloat at the ease with which United scored all three of their goals, but I bet he was pissing himself as he walked down the tunnel and into the away dressing room. I also bet he was wondering quite why he was forced out of the club.

6th April 1996- New Division One, Watford 1 Portsmouth 2

I guess the honeymoon’s over, then. Portsmouth are a grim, tedious side and yet we were simple not good enough to overcome them. In a scrappy game that was crying out for someone to put their foot on the ball and think about things, we should no signs of class or composure. Ramage was elsewhere.

That effectively ends all hope. We only have one game to redeem our entire season. If we beat Scum, and bring them down with us, it will almost be worth it. A bit of straw-clutching here…
