BBC SportCraig Cathcart’s stunning goal gave Watford a narrow victory over Birmingham as they moved top of the Championship and ensured automatic promotion is in their own hands.

skyThe Hornets went into the game knowing a win would take them back into the automatic promotion places following Middlesbrough’s victory at Norwich on Friday.

BHappy imageWe’ve not half had some games against this lot.  Some will remember victory in the Cup in 1960…  Cliff Holton helping the fourth division newly-christened Hornets to knock top-flight Blues out in front of 31,000 at the Vic.  In 1984 perhaps the most impressive single result of our run to the Cup Final came at St Andrews; Ron Saunders’ aggressive side came into the game on the back of a twelve-match unbeaten run in the top flight and had the majority of a 40,000 crowd behind them.  John Barnes ripped them to bits.  In 1999 a play-off semi-final concluded with an epic penalty shoot out that resulted in our second trip to Wembley.

BBC Sport BBC report: Troy Deeney’s goal earned Watford an opening day win at Birmingham as they reacted in positive fashion to last season’s play-off final defeat.

TelegraphDaily Telegraph report: New season it may be but having been thumped twice by Watford last term, Birmingham City supporters could be forgiven for approaching this opener with appropriate modesty.

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. But on this occasion Watford went in front after just two when Almen Abdi converted a penalty following Steven Caldwell’s hapless shove on Matej Vydra.

BHappy imageWatford started the game at a furious pace and rapidly dispelled fears of a re-enactment of Tuesday on the pitch.

BBC SportMartin Taylor scored an injury-time equaliser as Watford snatched a point against Birmingham City.

TelegraphMartin Taylor’s late equaliser against his former club, during a thrilling finale, compounded a bad weekend for Birmingham manager Chris Hughton, whose transfer target Nile Ranger was arrested the night before.

BHappy imageSo the first half of today’s game was a turgid embarrassment.

Cameron Jerome stepped off the bench to fire in a late winner at Watford and put Birmingham in pole position to join neighbours Wolves in winning promotion.

Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach had earlier had an inspired 45 minutes to frustrate a dominant Birmingham in the first half. But Brendan Rodgers’ side were much improved after the break and could have gone ahead themselves before Jerome made the breakthrough.

A patchy performance saw Watford give as good as they got in the second half and left the manager grateful to his reserve goalkeeper, Colin Doyle, starting a league game for the first time this season. He turned a goal-bound Grzegorz Rasiak header past a post just after the hour.

A touching send-off for Mike Keen before kickoff, with the Birmingham fans adding their applause to that of everyone connected with the club he once managed. I wasn’t around in any meaningful sense back then, I’m afraid, but Simon Marchant was and you can read his tribute here.
