7th January 2012- FA Cup Third Round, Watford 4 Bradford City 2

Watford raced into an early lead through Troy Deeney but were pegged back by James Hanson’s strike as the Bantams proved more than a match for their hosts in the opening stages. But Marvin Sordell’s 10th goal of the campaign sent Sean Dyche’s men in with the half-time advantage before Forsyth’s double secured their place in the fourth round, despite Nahki Wells’ late consolation.

This is how games against lower division opposition are supposed to pan out, of course, but we’ve made it look considerably harder than this in the past.  From the opening minutes when Marvin Sordell made space for a cross far too easily and Troy Deeney headed in unmarked at the far post, this was never in doubt.

BSAD imageBSAD report: Familiar ground, then.

In reality, the whole “WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE!” celebration extended no further than awkward greetings between two people who used to be at the same school but never really had anything in common. Initial pleasantries followed by edgy silences, not a memorable occasion.
