A selection of images from Watford’s draw with Burnley

Chris Wood saw an injury-time goal controversially ruled out for offside as Watford and Burnley failed to conjure a winner in a disappointing goalless draw at Vicarage Road.

Both teams had chances to score and the home side could have taken the lead as early as the second minute but Heaton denied Gerard Deulofeu with his right foot after the forward went through on goal. Heaton was called into action once more on the stroke of half-time when he dived to his right to parry Troy Deeney’s crisp side-footed effort to safety.

Indeed, the result had as much to do with wayward finishing as the excellent performances from both goalkeepers, Tom Heaton and Ben Foster.

Sean Dyche, back on his old stamping ground where he spent three seasons as a player before cutting his teeth in management on the day home supporters honoured the memory of Graham Taylor, could afford a smile at the final whistle despite seeing Chris Wood’s goal ruled out for offside in added time.

The highlight of the day was the GT stuff, quite obviously. Two years on the club provides all attendees with a drinks voucher, then orchestrates another tremendous scarf display as the players enter the arena. This might have been more effective still but for the unwanted, unneeded and sadly non-negotiable twaddle that is the Premier League anthem as the players solemnly shake hands. It could have been so much more than a stunning visual spectacle. But it is a stunning visual spectacle. There are scarves aloft in the away end too – Claret and Blue stands out a little less than Southampton’s red and white of a year ago, but it’s still a fine thing.

As the teams took the field, the crowd (including a number of Burnley fans) raised their scarves in honour of GT (the fellow next to me was given my spare so he could join in).  It really was quite a sight.  That was followed by a minute’s applause for both GT and Duncan Welbourne who passed away this week.  Chopper’s family were guests of honour of the club for the afternoon.

At half time, the family of Thomas Sawyer, a young soldier who was killed in Afghanistan 10 years ago, were on the pitch and Thomas’s father paid heartfelt tribute to his son.  Then, as the players came out for the second half, the 1881 lads unfurled the Legends banner which we held over our heads in the Rookery in the knowledge that it features both GT and Duncan Welbourne.  Both events were touching tributes and a clear sign that the club has not lost its community focus.

BBC SportAndre Gray struck on his return to Burnley as Watford scored an away goal for the first time since January to continue their winning start to the Premier League season.

skyAll the goals came at the start of each half, with Andre Gray netting inside three minutes before James Tarkowski’s header levelled things up three minutes later.

TelegraphWatford took advantage of ­leggy-looking hosts, who alarmingly ran out of steam in what was their sixth competitive game in 25 days at the outset of the campaign, thanks to their ongoing attempts to qualify for the group stages of the Europa League.

guardianGracia paid tribute to his strikers. “When you score three times it makes it easier to manage the game,” he said. “I know it is not easy to get points here, but I can only be pleased at the start we have made.” Gracia had not even seen an away goal since becoming Watford manager but he had to wait only three minutes for his side to nose in front, Andre Gray scoring against his old club after pushing the ball out to Troy Deeney on the right and moving up to meet the return with a sweetly struck right-foot volley.

FranAs I was on a flight to the US last Saturday for work, I missed the Brighton game, so I was really looking forward to my season starting properly.  But, as Watford hadn’t scored away from home since January 2nd and we never get anything at Burnley, my expectations were pretty low prior to kick-off.

skySam Vokes’ goal 22 seconds after coming on inspired Burnley to a 2-1 turnaround win at Watford.

BBC SportWatford, who had gone ahead just after the hour mark through Roberto Pereyra, drop a place to 12th despite dominating possession and creating more clear-cut scoring opportunities at Vicarage Road.

guardian“We dominated the game, we had more shots on target but it wasn’t enough,” said Javi Gracia. “We should have killed the game.”

TelegraphIt meant Dyche could enjoy victory against the club where he started his coaching career before they questionably let him slip.

FranAs at all Premier League grounds, there was a minute’s applause for Ray Wilkins, whose passing at the ridiculously young age of 61 hit me rather hard.  His time at Vicarage Road was not one that is remembered fondly by Watford fans, but when I met him at the kit sponsors do, I found him to be a lovely man (unlike Vialli).  It was pleasing that the applause in his memory started well before it was instructed.

The Hornets NestOnto Huddersfield next week then and you’ll all be pleased to know that it isn’t classed as the North West, so there’s the slim chance we might win.

guardianIf revenge is a dish best served cold, a snowy Turf Moor was an ideal location. Sean Dyche began a managerial career of underappreciated overachievement in charge of Watford against Burnley

TelegraphSix minutes of commotion, devilment and enterprise at the end of the first period ultimately proved decisive in this ferociously competitive contest.

FranAs I walked towards the ground, I was amazed to see someone setting up a stall selling Burnley/Watford half-and-half scarves.  Who on earth did he think would buy one?

The Hornets NestMy record in the North West began back in 2005, as Watford travelled to Anfield for the Carling Cup semi-final 1st leg. I remember my dad coming to pick me up from school and using the excuse of ‘dentist appointment’ as my reason for leaving early.  That was 12 years ago. And since then (before yesterday’s Burnley match) I had seen us play in that region a total of 21 times, won 0, drawn 3 and lost 18.

27th January 2009- Championship, Watford 3 Burnley 0

Tamas Priskin came off the bench to score a clinical brace as Watford earned a vital Championship win against a very disappointing Burnley.

Burnley got off to the worst possible start when McAnuff struck inside the opening minute.

Before Saturday, my co-editor suggested that Mr.Rodgers needed to give us something to cling to.  Well this wasn’t so much a damp rope to cling to as a luxury yacht with well stocked galley and attentive staff.  Wallop! And there was me suggesting that we were doomed with him in charge.  Shows how much I know.  Why are you still reading this?

BBC SportMatthew Spring scored on his debut as in-form Watford secured victory against patched-up Burnley at Vicarage Road.

BSAD imageBSAD report: At long last, we’re seeing the results of spending some proper money on the squad: some of Adrian Boothroyd’s early work might’ve been for die-hard fans only, but recent additions have been unquestionably tremendous. There remains much work to be done on the training ground, of course…but the last two-and-a-half games have offered more than mere promise for the future, and we’re likely to be spared a repeat of the Vialli fiasco, waiting for months for cold water to “gel”. That’s not to say that we yet have enough strength in depth; it is, however, to applaud the manager for delivering the quality that he promised throughout the summer clear-out.

Another BSAD report: From the moment Malky Mackay and Ade Akinbiyi emerged side by side from the players’ tunnel at 2.56pm and, incredibly, Akinbiyi delivered a two-handed bar-room push to Malky’s chest like Mackay had just been chatting up Ade’s girlfriend, you absolutely knew, no question, that this was Family Day. Certainly it reminded me of parts of my family, and I’d be surprised if we’re all that different from most of you out there.
