15th December 2020- Championship, Watford 1 Brentford 1

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.

BHappy image report: another chance for Odion Ighalo to show us what he could do. Word from Granada was that he was hugely popular despite not having the best goalscoring ratio, and it’s easy to see why on both counts.

26th July 2011- Friendly, Brentford 0 Watford 0

Gavin Mahon made his final Watford appearance in this game over three and a half years after his penultimate one.  His last competitive appearance was on 1st Dec 2007 in the 2-1 home defeat by Burnley.  He then joined QPR, initially on loan, and played over 50 times for them.  They released him at the end of the 2010/11 season.  As he was without a club Sean Dyche allowed Mahon to train with us during the 2011/12 pre-season and he came on during this game as a second half substitute.  He eventually signed for Notts County.

Watford fielded former captain Gavin Mahon and a trialist left back during tonight’s 0-0 draw at Brentford.
