This would be the final game of the season that Watford fans were allowed to attend as a rise in Covid cases brought the relaxation of government restrictions to an end the following weekend. The attendance was given as exactly 2000.
BBC Sport: In a frantic five second-half minutes at Vicarage Road, Brentford’s Ethan Pinnock was sent off for bundling over Ismaila Sarr in the box and Troy Deeney drilled home the resulting penalty. Toney then sent Ben Foster the wrong way after Christian Kabasele was penalised for handball.
Sky Sports: Substitute Stipe Perica had a header ruled out for Watford in the 82nd minute for offside – a call the officials also appeared to have got wrong as the striker was level with the last defender.
Official site: It was Deeney’s 137th goal for the club and he seems as hungry as ever. It didn’t end up as a winning penalty this time, as it really should have done against a Brentford side who played nearly half an hour with a man less, and that’s what will disappoint the captain the most.
