Frans Watford Blog: Many of those that remained were chanting “We want Pozzo out.” There was five minutes of added time and something to cheer about as Sarr found Assombalonga on the right, he broke into the box and shot past Vaclík. There was no celebration of the goal by the players, João Pedro picked the ball out of the net and ran back to the centre circle to expedite the restart. It then got really nasty. First Sarr was impeded in the box and went down. It wasn’t a penalty and Helik showed his displeasure with some cross words. Then Hogg fouled João Pedro and there was a lot of pushing and shoving, but only Choudhury was booked. There was another niggly foul, this time on Assombalonga and Bachmann, who was up for the free kick was complaining vociferously so was booked. What followed was ridiculous. The free kick dropped, and Bachmann went in for the ball with a flying kick that Hong Kong Phooey would have been proud of. He almost took Pearson’s head off. There was no surprise when the referee showed a second yellow. Dan continued to argue as he walked off the pitch and had to be pushed off by his teammates, although he threw his gloves back on. He gave his shirt to Choudhury who looked completely baffled but, after consultation with Chris Wilder, Hamza put it on and went to stand in the vicinity of the goal, although he had not retrieved the gloves. The final whistle went straight after the restart, so his barehanded keeping skills were not tested.
He was nowhere near as scatching or angry as he was after last week’s defeat at Luton, but Chris Wilder was still clearly hurting when he spoke to the media after yesterday’s defeat against Huddersfield.
