BBC SportWatford’s on-loan Udinese pair Almen Abdi and Matej Vydra were both on target in an impressive win over Birmingham City.

skyWatford produced a blistering first-half performance to secure a 2-0 victory over Birmingham and hand Gianfranco Zola his first home win.

TelegraphBirmingham City travelled to Watford on Saturday and, for both sides, goals for or against had come mostly in the final minutes their first two games.

20th May 1999- New Division One Playoff Semi Final Second Leg, Birmingham City 1 Watford 0 (After Extra Time, Aggregate score 1-1, Watford win 7-6 on penalties)

BSAD image Last night is incomprehensible, even with the aid of a notebook. Just absolutely gargantuan. My brain is currently refusing to process all the information for fear of overload, but my heart knows the score.

Real life is what awaits in the summer, which might start as soon as Thursday (and that’s a frightening thought). Real life is not Watford, so it’s nothing that I’d be interested in.

Independent WEMBLEY IS beckoning Watford – but Graham Taylor is refusing to look.
